It may seem difficult to have a practical photography session in the evening, in the middle of winter, but our very own Brian and Kathy solved the problem in style. They set up lots of small scale objects and situations on table tops, and members were able to try out different camera settings, lighting, shooting angles, compositions etc, and then compare images. It was a great evening to give the tripod an airing and investigate some of the more obscure menu items on our cameras. It was a superb learning experience and great fun, and many thanks to Brian and Kathy for their hard work. The next meeting is Competition Night on Wednesday, February 21 when renowned photographer Libby Smith will be judging our prints and DPIs and giving advice for improvements.
