Architects’ Association Trophy

Happy New Year!

Just a reminder that our next club competition is the Architects’ Association Trophy to be held on Tuesday 14th January 2020.

Don’t forget, the theme for this competition, set by Graham Wright of the Architects’ Association, is ‘Consensus in Architecture’ with the following explanation:

Modern Architecture has often been criticised as being insensitive, terms like ‘….it looks like a prison building….’ and ‘… it’s a carbuncle…’ have often been used. Good Architecture should not simply copy the neighbours but be compatible, good neighbourly and respectful designs. Architects do not work in isolation to design buildings which all also have to be approved by various bodies. We see the resultant compromises.  It is my view that consensus Architecture should meld the new with the old.

Enter your PDIs (a maximum of 3) by the closing date of 7th January.

Looking forward to seeing some imaginative and creative images.

 

Capturing Cumbria

If you enjoy landscape/rural photography there is a pleasant, non-technical, 20 minute radio broadcast on BBC iPlayer where Amy Bateman, farmer and photographer, talks about her photographic life.

Amy has won numerous photographic awards including the overall winner of the most recent, prestigious British Life Photography competition. The exhibition has been touring Britain throughout 2019. Amy says she takes about 5-6,000 photographs each week.

Computational Photography

Computational Photography

I came across an article on Computational Photography recently and thought some of you might be interested in reading it.  The definition used in the paper is- ‘computational imaging techniques enhance or extend the capabilities of digital photography in which the output is an ordinary photograph, but one that could not have been taken by a traditional camera’
