Yorkshire Wildlife – a photographer’s view
Last night Wakefield Camera Club hosted an evening presentation by Paul Miguel, a renown wildlife photographer and course tutor. This was a very timely topic as the 3rd Clubman Competition subject is Fauna. The members were given an interesting and visually impacting presentation spanning the seasons from winter thro’ spring right up until Autumn displaying the wide talents of Paul’s photography. Clearly he pays rigorous attention to detail, wearing camouflage gear and crawling through ditches in the early hours of the morning, stalking his subjects with great care to get “that shot”. The images, some of which were taken as locally as Fairburn Ings and Potteric Carr certainly gave food for thought. Perhaps the secret of his success is having chosen his quarry he sets a stage so he can obtain a good, natural viewpoint in their natural habitat. Clearly it’s all in the preparation and determination to achieve different results of these relatively unpredictable subjects.
The after-presentation questions raised many queries for Paul to field. So all in all another successful evening for our membership.
