Newsletter #20 – Steve Spraggon Comes to SCC !


The long awaited evening arrived, our first outside speaker. Brians Comer and Bateman had been hard at it setting up the sound system, there were wires everywhere. Ian set his camera to video. We were all set to go.

Thanks to everyone for putting the effort in to make is such a successful evening. Stephen was very complimentary about the audio arrangement.

Some of us had met Stephen before, that was why we booked him. We knew his shots of Somerset were inspirational.
Stephen started off by giving us a quick slide show, he then explained his choice of equipment and how he used it. He then showed how he took some of his shots, emphasising the careful planning that went into a photoshoot.
The modified arrangement for drinks worked well, a huge thanks goes to James for all his efforts in preparing and tidying up afterwards. We could all hear him happy in his labours during Stephen’s second half !

Stephen showed us how his work had expanded with some images of Paris, Amsterdam, Frankfort and Berlin. Again the meticulous planning was explained to get the best use of the light.

The session ended with questions, hosted by Tom. Lots of members came up for a chat afterwards and several have signed up to do some courses with Stephen.

If you missed out on the evening you missed a great event. Watch out on our website for  ‘STEVE SPRAGGON QUESTION TIME’ video produced by Ian & the Brians which should be up by Wednesday. If you havent yet checked out Steve’s website click HERE
