Well I will be on the River Yare at Brundal in about 1 hour with Sternmoor and doing some photograph workshop.

So watch this space for some results from the next few days.

Hi Pauline, we did, thanks. Smile  I'm just posting this to keep the thread live, so to speak; I've got a hospital appointment today and tomorrow and dog walking duties, since her ladyship has gone to London for the rest of the week.  I hope to put something about the course tomorrow P.M. See ya!  Smile

My pal Dave and I are so looking forward to this course! It was an auction win at the Meet, but poor old Dave had a health scare (now thankfully resolved), so we couldn't make it this year. Paul has very kindly allowed us to postpone our trip until next spring. What a gent! (Well, we think so).

Regards, Ray.

If it's neither here, nor
there,
then where is it?

Lord Paul’s Photography Course.

Daphne along with a son (sorry forgotten his name), dropped Paul off at Broom’s boatyard in Brundall at around 1930 on Wednesday, 23rd October, 2013.  Mother and son helped Paul load his gear onto Moonlight Shadow, brandy and lemonade, oh, and some camera gear along with his laptop.  In fact I also brought my laptop, note the word my, and that’s why the landlady (Lisa) couldn’t open the Pongy Pump Out on the Tuesday evening.  That Wednesday introduction didn’t involve coffee, but brandy and lemonade for him, vodka and tonic for me.

Thursday dawned, but without me, I overslept and woke up at 0830 and Paul was too kind to get me out of my pit, drat, so that is the early morning shoot done for, I cannot remember the last time I overslept like that, so that was a great start.  Around 1000 we set off for Strumpshaw Fen to take some photographs.  Initially I, as usual, tend to look in the distance for photographs, Paul noticed this and suggested I look around me and that was sort of like opening another door.  I started to do this and was soon photographing red berries, looking at shapes, at one place the sun was shining on the water and the reflection looked a small group of sparkling diamonds, so that was lesson learnt.  We also went to Wheatfen, The Ted Ellis Nature Reserve at Surlingham, taking more photographs using aperture priority and Paul had me going up and down the F stops to see the different effects of the changing depth of field.  I was also shooting in RAW and later in the day this would be converted into JPEG.  We also stopped off at the New Inn at Rockland for a nice lunch and the bar lady was pleasant and chatty.  After lunch we headed back to Broom and the boat, arriving around 1500, then we broke out the lappys, I was rather worried about the next part, I am not brilliant with computers, Lisa said I am like her boss with computers, a dinosaur, so hurtful! Paul also produced a list of freebie downloads, which I shall not list here, I will leave that to Paul if he wants to, it is his course.  Firstly we went through all the photographs we had taken and converted them from RAW to JPEG.  Following that Paul showed me a computer programme that converts photographs to High Dynamic
Range(HDR) – Exposure Bracketing photographs, three or five exposures, blended into one. Sometimes this looks very effective other times not so much so.  Evening came and we had few enjoyable sherbets and retired for the night.

The following morning I managed to get up at a reasonable hour this time, had a bit of breakfast, we chatted over the previous day’s photography and decided to have a look around the boatyard, but there wasn’t a great deal to photograph and we only took a few then went for lunch at The Yare and went back to the boat for some more computer work, this we did until around 1800 and wound down waiting whilst waiting for Daphne to take Paul home.

To sum up, I enjoyed the course, we didn’t do everything due to weather, me oversleeping, lack of fitness, but I enjoyed Paul’s company and moved my photography abilities on somewhat, I think, I learned more of my camera’s capabilities and I am glad I bought it.  It is a Fujifilm HS50 EXR bridge camera in case anyone is interested.  At some point I will put up what Paul thought was my best photograph and try and show the effect of HDR on my avatar, quite astonishing really, well at least I think so.  Thanks Paul, look forward to seeing you and Daphne next year.

Ps.  Next year I hope to take the VHF course and get myself a hand held radio, probably an Icom.  Won't have far to travel to do it either and if your spouse does the course with you it is half price for them.  Smile

I know Keith will post up some of his photographs he took shortly, but in the meantime I have uploaded some just a half dozen.
