17 February 2022 Simon Caplan

Well, now we know what Simon Caplan’s interpretation of ‘Extraordinary – ordinary’ is! What a great evening. He was a very engaging speaker who had lots of superbly composed images. They were all observations of very ordinary subjects that most of us walk past without a second glance. Simon on the other hand, can ‘see’ the potential and manages to capture exactly the right amount of detail in the image. Such ordinary objects as security fences; air-conditioning ceiling fans; bolts; handrails even the frosty grill from a Kia Venga! In the second half, Simon critiqued our images and fortunately, he saw potential in most of them. Most of his comments were around interpretation of the subject and composition but all his comments were constructive and informative.
