WHITLEY BAY PHOTOGRAPHIC SOCIETY
Thursday 15th November. A Night on the Town.
Combining an outing with our monthly Technical meeting we have a chance to practice our night photography including light trails and ‘zoom blur’ in Newcastle City Centre followed by a cheap meal or pint. Meet outside Dean Street Car park just after 5 (when the free parking starts) then a slow walk up Grey Street to capture the city’s regency spender before heading into Northumberland/Pilgrim street for the bright lights and shoppers. For those interested we can call in for a cheap meal at about 19:30 before heading home. Sun sets in Newcastle at about 16:05 on the 15th November so weather permitting we should get some nice dark blue skies. For those who have not done night photography before we will look at how to set up your camera and why the light meter cannot be trusted in the dark. Light weight tripods will be useful for this outing but a ‘spare’ will be provided. (Thanks to Lee Kirkbride for the idea).
Saturday 1st December. Bracing Beach Walk.
After opening the first door on your Advent Calendar take a chance to blow away the cobwebs with a walk along Blyth Beach then a meander around Seaton Sluice before Fish and Chips in the Harbour View. For the energetic you can walk the mile and a half along the sands to the beach huts and WW1 lookout post before returning to take pictures of Monkey Island and the boats bobbing around in the harbour. Meet at the car park just off the roundabout at Seaton Sluice at 11:00 (hour after high tide) on the 1st December with lunch at the Harbour View around 1:30.
