Camberwell Camera Club – AV Presentation

An AV Masterclass with Howard Bagshaw, ARPS MPAGB

Monday 10th September at 7.30pm, Rutherford Room

St John’s, 522 Burke Road, Camberwell

CCCub have said………..

We have been extremely fortunate that Howard Bagshaw has produced for us an evening of his work.  As you are probably aware, Howard is a highly regarded photographer.  He started making AVs after he retired and is currently chairman of the AV section of the Royal Photographic Society.  He wins international gold medals for his work.  He also spends a lot of his time helping and instructing audio-visual makers.  It has taken a few months and a fair bit of e-mail traffic to get to this point.  He has taken great care and has clearly spent a lot of time producing this program.

The work he has sent to us includes ten AVs and an introduction to each one.  There is a range of complexity.  He deals with different techniques and demonstrates these.  He gives special emphasis to the interaction between sound and the image sequence.  He also deals with the vexed issue of archive photographs and demonstrates the use of video in AVs.  Howard’s images are excellent, he tells a very good story and produces top-class audio-visuals.  He is not laying down any laws; the description ‘masterclass’ is mine.  He is simply showing us what he does.

I hope you will be able to come.  Please pass this information on to any other members of your club who might be interested.
