The night was well attended and there were subjects of interest for everyone.
David’s work demonstrated that he has a wide range of interests and the technical ability and creativity to produce high class images and a few have won competitions. Many of his images were captured by getting out there in all weathers often in precarious places and he bears the battle scars to get something different.
River Tyne at Dusk, The Sage, The Baltic, St Marys Lighthouse from a different angle and a chance capture of the Aurora Borealis featured in the landscape section.
In the Natural History section David showed images taken in wild life parks and from the wild included Lions, Tigers, Birds of Prey, Monkeys, Puffins and a stunning Silver Back Gorilla. The Puffin images were sensational action shots and showed just what we can look forward to on the 23rd June 2012 on 'The Puffin Run' field trip to the Farne Islands. Keep an eye on the web site calendar and make sure you mark it in your diary if you want try your hand at capturing those stunning little birds.
Moving on to a collection from his artistic and creative side there were images of Water Drops and Smoke Art Images. The images certainly had the effect of getting the imagination going and the urge to give it a go. He showed how a highly technical visual image can be captured using the minimal of kit combined with remote flash and some digital processing to achieve spell binding atmospheric results.
David closed the night with a few images from his latest work on local theatrical productions.
Some of the images were taken in very low light conditions with very moody silhouettes and the best were of stage actors playing Jesus and his Disciples.
