Our guest speaker this week is Stephen Cosh
Stephen Cosh from Ayr was the guest speaker last week with a presentation on Street Photography. Steven gave a brief biographical introduction before showing the members examples of his work. He is the founder of “The Leica Meet” an active club of Leica users worldwide
With images from many parts of the world Stephen gave members an insight into his working methods and passed on many hints and tips about capturing the decisive moment. Stephen also demonstrated his Leica cameras and invited members to handle them and even take some shots with them.
He is a committed film user and sparked a debate afterwards about the relative merits of film verses digital.
He also showed members examples of Street Portraiture and gave members more hints and tips about approaching people to take their portraits.
Stephen finished his talk with some information on a photography charity he supports and asked that his fee for the talk be given to them
It was a very inspirational talk which will encourage members to try their hand at the genre of street photography.
