From Alex and Michelle
Last Monday, November the 7th 2016, myself and Alex were invited to the Macclesfield Camera Club at Macclesfield library. I have to be honest I was a little nervous about speaking to a group of photographers and camera enthusiasts, especially in a lecture theatre. My nerves were soon gone when the club members began to turn up 20 minutes early, showing a real excitement, as we continued to set up our studio and inside darkroom.
Over the last few months we have been invited to work at all kinds of evening and indoor events as well as the summer festivals that we attend with the trailer. This has been a great time for us to develop our set up, which we feel is working fantastically. Please see http://tintypetrailer.co.uk/velvet-burlesque/.
The evening was a huge success, we began the evening with a quick intro to Wet Plate Collodion, followed by a demonstration of making a tin type, we then finished with some group photos and lots of sharing of ideas and knowledge.
Congratulations to Keith Parker who recently came second in the Aspiring Class of the Disabled Photographer’s Society (DPS) competition on the theme of ‘Landscape’. The DPS is a national charity for disabled photographers in the UK and has over 500 members. Keith’s image is of the Newcastle Swing Bridge taken at night.
