History and Heritage meet High Quality Digital

22 May 2017

SIG: Digital Imaging Thames Valley

The day began with Marilyn Taylor ARPS speaking about her experiences photographing re-staged historical events. Her stunning images left the audience in no doubt that a visit to a re-enactment event is a unique opportunity to capture live action and living history.

The second presentation was by Neil Cave of Timeline Events. Continuing on the theme of history and heritage, his two PDI sequences showed the range of subjects and locations that Timeline offer to photographers.

The afternoon began with a tribute to Len Deeley FRPS by Janet Haines ARPS, Chair of the RPS Digital Imaging Group. Len, a popular and renowned sub-aqua photographer, died suddenly and prematurely, just months after entering, and winning, the Thames Valley Centre PDI Competition in 2016. A presentation of Len's photographs and three of his most successful AV presentations was followed by the inaugural Len Deeley Memorial PDI competition, judged by Leo Rich ARPS. Congratulations to all certificate winners and to Stephen Galvin for his image entitled ‘Suspicious’ that was awarded 1st place and the fabulous new trophy.
