Visions members snap local wildlife

Several of our Visions members have been busy out and about getting photos of some of our local wildlife which is beginning to appear this spring.  Here is a selection of some of our recent shots.

Visions Members Capture the Eclipse

Several of our Visions members were able to view and capture the solar eclipse in and around Aberdeen yesterday morning.  An eclipse is a rare sight to see, and we were lucky enough to catch enough breaks in the clouds to get some images from a variety of locations including Dunnottar Castle, the Ythan at Newburgh and a school roof!  Here are some of the resulting shots.

Spectra

Last night some of our intrepid Visions members went along to Spectra, Aberdeen’s festival of light. Here are some of the images from the evening.

Natural Phenomonen Captured by Visions Member

Lucky Visions member Derek Gray saw a Brocken Spectre while descending Cul Mor on the west coast, and managed to get this fantastic shot of it.  A Brocken spectre is a magnified shadow of the observer cast against mist or cloud and surrounded by a rainbow.  It can only be seen when certain conditions are met and each observer can only see his/her own Brocken Spectre.  Thanks to Derek for sharing his image with us.

Happy Christmas from Visions

For our final session of the year we had a social night where we took the opportunity to eat, drink and chat together.  We also viewed the results of our Christmas Photo Challenge which can be seen below.  From all at Visions we would like to wish you a Happy Christmas and all the best for 2015.

Critique Night: Michal Wachucik

This week at Visions we welcomed back our friend Michal Wachucik,  a professional photographer who works for Newsline Media Limited, a press and commercial photography agency.   Michal gave us his honest critique on a selection of photos provided by club members in his own unique and humorous way.  Getting feedback such as this on photos is an excellent way to learn and improve our photography and we would like to thank Michal for coming along.  You can see more about Michal by clicking on the links below. http://www.photomw.co.uk https://www.facebook.com/pages/Michal-Wachucik-Photography/136329496455689 Here are a selection of some of the pictures put forward for critique on the night.

Marek Kargier: From Digicam to DSLR Talk

This Thursday we heard a talk by one of Visions most enthusiastic members, Marek Kargier.  Marek talked to us about his photography addiction, how he developed his passion for photography and some of the techniques he uses.  Marek enjoys landscape photography and is famed in the club for getting up extremely early in the morning to capture a sunrise and he has been using a lot of black and white photography more recently.  To see more of Marek’s excellent work have a look at his Flickr page below:
