President’s Night went at high-speed!
Monday night 06 January, 2014 found Wakefield Camera Club recommencing activities after the Year-end festivities. We were to be treated to our President, Sally Sallet’s night and after various tasters all was revealed in an absorbing talk by John Denny on High Speed Photography associated with vehicle crash testing. It proved to be an interesting presentation with both the physical equipment being demonstrated and the resulting footage of the actual testing being shown (not all of the tests went to plan!).
Peter Wells stood in as a ‘Crash Test Dummy’ for a live demonstration of the High Speed capture of a party popper being set off. So all in all an enjoyable evening and some sobering issues to take away as we made/drove our way home.
