Thank you to everyone who came along to the opening night tonight, I hope it whet your appetites for the season ahead. We really do have some very exciting guest speakers and lots of ideas for members' nights, as well as the competitions.
The full programme can be downloaded here.
A couple of people asked if the presentation on competitions could be made available on the website - so it can also be downloaded here.
Next week - 11th September 2018 - we have a Practical Night
A night aimed at practical skills, socialising with and learning from others
For practical night we request our members send us an unedited RAW file to Ben Freeman at email@example.com (please also include your name of image and the title ‘Practical Evening’ in your email) for practical editing techniques to be demonstrated on our big screen as Ben talks you through the live edits he makes in Photoshop and ways the image may be improved by employing these skills.
For the rest of the evening, we thought it might be a good idea for members to bring in some photography related equipment they use or have tried for discussion. This means accessories more so than cameras themselves, for example, this could be a light tent or other lighting equipment, extension tubes, special filter kits, thing, we use external to the camera body etc. You may also bring along any photography books that you can highly recommend for people to read and tell us why you rate them. Should get us all talking till the cows come home!
Basically a good fun and lighthearted way to kick off the season and get back into the swing of things, before our first excellent guest speaker comes along the following week.
Look forward to seeing you.
