    Hi everyone.

    I thought I would let you all know about a joint exhibition I am having with a good friend of mine, Michael Paynton. Michael is a medium format worker and shoots velvia, though prints his own stuff (for his sins) He is a landscape photographer and makes beautiful photographs, so it is a pleasure to share a space with him. His work can be seen here; www.momentoflight.co.uk

    The exhibition is on at The Boxfield Gallery at Stevenage arts and Leisure centre.
    Stevenage Leisure centre,
    Lytton Way,
    Stevenage,
    Herts
    SG1 1LZ
    Tel 01438 242630

    Info on how to get there can be found here;
    http://www.stevenage-leisure.co.uk/...geArtsampLeisureCentre/tabid/345/Default.aspx

    The exhibition is on from Friday the 8th August untill 7th September. There is a Private view on Thursday 7th August (wine and nibbles included). I will be there from 7.30pm. I have sent invites to APUGers who's addresses I have, though it would be good to see more of you on the night. Just mention APUG at the reception. It would be good to meet some of you.

    Hope some of you can make it.

    Best

    Stoo No probs with the second site but I get a "not found" response for the first for Michael Paynton. Any ideas as to why?

    Not often that viewers get the chance these days to compare and contrast colour and B&W landscapes which this exhibition will give. I think that most who go in with the usual preconceived notion that only colour can do justice to landscape might leave, having formed a more balanced viewpoint. It's not that colour is inferior, it's simply that B&W is better than it is given credit for in this branch of photography

    Congratulations, Stoo. I hope you have great success with the show and enjoy the rewards of what must be a lot of hard work. Wish I could see it in person. Be sure to share some shots of the show with us.

    All the best,
    Daniel

    Stoo, could you bring your exhibition prints with you to the Oct meet and impress/disillusion the rest of us(me) with your fabulous work

    The general standard of printing at the April meet really impressed me but you & Les were in a different league

    Thanks

    Martin

    Having just returned from Stoo's exhibition I can report that it is first class. Well done Stoo and it was nice to see other APUGers there too.

    Great expo...

    Very nicely done Stoo. Your prints and exhibition were as excellent as ever.

    I might winge about one or two - but to be honest the standard is so far above mine that I would be rather daft to even comment.

    Great show, great prints - When's the next one...

    You will have a tough time improving what you have already - except for the odd apostrophe or three :wink:

    I dashed in from the rain this afternoon to take a look Stoo. One word - brilliant! All of them. It wasn't until I got home I realised I had not left any comments in the visitors book, which was rude of me, so apologies. I will go back with my son next week anyway, and will leave you some comments then.

    Anyone thinking of going - recommended!!

    Regards

    Steve

    Thank You

    Hello All

    A big thank you to all that came on the opening night of my exhibition. I feel that the evening was a great success and felt very proud and honoured that there was such a large turnout, many travelling many miles to be there.

    Here are a few pics;

    Hi Martin.

    Of course I will gladly bring some of the prints along. That said, I am hoping that I don't have any left to bring :D

    Thank you for your kind comments.

    See you soon.

    Best

    Ooops ... just saw this thread.

    The exhibition was outstanding and the contrast of both BW and colour worked very well. Rosie and I had a fab time at the opening.
    Well done, all your efforts to put this together did not go unnoticed. And incidentally, as I am reading the thread, I realise that I did not leave any comments in the visitors' book either :sad:

    Best
