“Know your camera” evening

On Wednesday 15 November we will be running an evening where members can get any help they need with their camera, or with processing or mounting their images. If you would like us to cover any particular subjects, please let us know in advance so that we can make the evening as helpful and informative as possible. You may for example want to learn more about Lightroom or Photoshop, have some of the settings on your camera explained, or you may want to know how to mount your prints or learn a technique like long exposures. The choice is yours, and you will be able to join small groups on the night with some of our more experienced photographers who will cover the subjects you need help with. There will also be the chance to have a chat to other members, and if the evening is successful, we will plan more of these evenings next season. read more

2nd PDI competition of the season

The season’s second pdi competition will be held on Wednesday 8 November, and as we have no meetings on either 25 October or 1 November, any pdi entries should be sent by email to James by Wednesday 1 November at the latest. In view of the large number of entries for the last competition, please note that of your maximum of 3 entries, you should indicate when emailing which of them is your 3rd choice, in case the competition has to be reduced to a maximum of two entries each.
