Candlelight and Lightning

Both workshops featured dramatic lighting this week: at Photography Night, which was meant to be sunset themed, a fabulous storm raged, resulting a intermittent electricity cuts and a Hammer House of Horror atmosphere. The Life Drawers would have loved that lighting for their Prehistoric session, but made do with candles. They had exciting action poses to compensate though!

Life Drawing is back in a fortnight (29/9) and Photography Night on Tuesday (20/9) at which they will be ‘shooting from the hip’. Cameras at dawn then…

More Waves and Ripples

A second chance to catch the show at Studio22B

We had a great time at Artsmill and were sad to leave. Invigilating the exhibition and talking to visitors about our work was both interesting and motivating. We got really good feedback and comments which has given us a boost and a positive start to 2016.

Our pictures (minus sold pieces!) are now back ‘home’ at 22B and we will be hanging them over the next week, to open on Thursday 25th February at our usual time of 2-6pm.

Come to our exhibition ‘Waves and Ripples’ at Artsmill, Hebden Bridge

Romanian Lives exhibition raises £153

Dr Kathy Tedd receiving the cheque and framed photograph from Matt.

We travelled to Bingley to meet Dr Kathy Tedd from Jubiliee Outreach Yorkshire. This charity is still going strong supporting Romanian people with practical help. It started with Dr Tedd supporting a Romanian doctor who, thanks to the vagaries of the Ceaucescu regime, only had a very basic medical kit and no drugs at all, and has ended up with entire hospitals and support centres for vulnerable people across Romania. Learn more about their work here.

It was a very emotional exprience for Matt as it was the first time he had been able to talk to someone else who knew what it was like out in Romania in those conditions, for over 20 years. Dr Tedd put names to faces in Matt’s photographs and added her own anecdotes to his.

Thank you to every one that donated.
