FOR this month’s feature, Malton Camera Club focuses on the work of three of its members, who have “widely differing photographic interests”.

As usual several of the shots are from the Yorkshire area, but others are from much further afield.

Helen Smith

Helen’s shot of a mouse on cereal stalks is from a studio shoot that she went on late last year. The mouse performed beautifully and she was able to get a very natural looking shot.

Helen’s second shot is of the magnificent Harewood House, the popular 18th century attraction to the north of Leeds. This shows a spring view of the lovely parterre and terrace that stretches right across the South facade of the house.

Ron Pickering

Ron is one of the club’s newer members and is a published photographer best-known for his books on wildlife.

He does a great deal of travelling to find his subjects and can spend hours just waiting for the right moment to press the shutter. The Fennec foxes and Coco the chimp look even better when seen as projected images.

Keith Goodchild

Keith’s shot of trees in autumn was taken at Brimham Rocks and shows some great colour with the green of the moss and yellow of the leaves contrasting well.

The dampness of the bark and leaves adds great contrast to the scene. His shot of a house on Loch Shiel in Scotland also shows good autumn colours with the addition of lovely reflections in the calm waters.

Malton Camera Club meets every other Friday at Norton Methodist Church rooms from September onwards.
