February 2021 club meeting
18 February 2021
On the agenda…
Clive Taylor is retired now, but ran a hgh-profile picture framing business for 40 years and remains a wealth of knowledge on the subject. He talked about the three elements of framing; mounting, glass and moulding.
Clive discussed the different type of matt boards available and the importance of layering and colour selection, and also showed examples of these (and the bevel-edging options available). He also discussed the different glass options on the market, and passed around some example frames using Art glass and GroGlass (70% and 99% UV protection respectively). The group was blown away by the clarity of the gladd, particularly the 99% protection version!
He wrapped up with a discussion on bonding the images, and the varieties of mounding available and the effect they can have on your images.
Kev is an avid astrophotographer and aurora hunter. In preparation for the upcoming astrophotography excursion, Kev gave a presentation on astrophotography and covered the gear, settings and other considerations for this genre of photography. He demonstrated some of the planning apps available and specifically talked through the timing and weather expected for the upcoming excursion.
