The North Norfolk Photographic Society hasn’t let a lockdown stop members from getting together … here is their latest report – and some lovely photos to brighten your Monday.

Well – it takes more than a lockdown to stop a good club from holding a meeting!

Through the power of Zoom, 30 or so members “met” on Wednesday, April 15, to see and hear a presentation from Justin Minns on landscape photography.

Justin Minns

From his home near Felixstowe, in Suffolk, Justin spoke to members at their respective homes throughout North Norfolk (and one or two further afield) about how his interest in photography had developed from a simple camera – which he found was not up to the job – through to the high-end Canon equipment he now uses to illustrate his books, and to provide commissioned work for others, including the National Trust.

Most of the examples shown were landscapes in Suffolk and Norfolk, and Justin explained how an image can be improved by adjusting the settings of a RAW image. He showed in particular the use of neutral density filters so that exposures of as much as 500 seconds could be achieved showing water and clouds in a fresh way.

During more normal times, the North Norfolk Photographic Society holds meetings in Holt, but in the meantime people with an interest might like to view the society’s website at https://www.nnphotosoc.org/ or to contact the society’s secretary at secretary.nnps@gmail.com.
