Thursday 1st November – PDI Competition

Members can enter up to two images on any theme.

Please email them to Chris at cjgib62 AT 

Remember that Chris needs these by Friday 26th October at the latest, and if you are entering the Beginners’ League to let Chris know.

Thursday 25th October – Autumn Images

This Thursday please bring along a USB stick with up to 5 recent images on the theme, Autumn.

We will then spend the evening talking about each image and giving feedback and (hopefully) ideas on their good aspects and possible ways of improving them.

A suggestion at our previous “Challenge” event was that you might also find it useful to bring along a note on the camera setting for each image.

Next Meeting – Thursday 18th October – Print Competition

This will be the first Print Competition of the season, comprising Mono and Colour categories for the Club League and the Improvers’ League.

Members will have been advised by email about getting entries to the Print Secretary.

Next Meeting – Thursday 11th October – Practical session on Mounting Techniques

Peter Phillips and others will be demonstrating the equipment they use for print mounting and there will be the opportunity to practise for yourself.

Next Meeting – Thursday 4th October – Beginners’ Session

Next Thursday’s meeting goes under the title of “Beginners”, but this is a bit of a misnomer, since we know from previous occasions we have run this that many people with a variety of experience have found the information useful.

Chris Gibbins will be giving a presentation which will cover the function of the buttons and dials on your camera and how to use these to produce better results. He will also include aspects of composition, so that taken together, what you produce is less of a snap and more of a photograph! After a break for tea/coffee, if you bring your camera along (together with its manual) and have any questions about it, there should be someone around to help.

We start at 8pm and the cost to non-members is only £3.

Next Meeting – Thursday 27th September – Photo Challenge #1

This will be our first Photo Challenge and will be on the subject of Low Light Photography. As we outlined at the AGM, the aim of these challenges is for as many members as possible to take and show photographs in a non-competitive forum. We hope that members who don’t often show their work will want to take part in these challenges.
We suggest that members take some photographs in the town centre from about 7.30 until about 8.30, you might like to meet by the museum and perhaps work in pairs.
You will need:

a camera! Do have it set-up to take small jpegs 
remote release, or have the camera set-up on a timer delay
a flash gun, if you have one
a plastic bag, if it is wet, to keep your camera dry
your memory card- make sure this is empty
Aim to take 3-5 photographs. Then return to the hall for downloading onto our laptop and a cup of tea/coffee. After this break we will look at everyone’s images and talk about them.
We expect that most data cards will either be SD cards or CompactFlash. If you have a different type of card please let Chris know at cjgib62 AT or bring a suitable card reader on Thursday.
These challenges are an innovation for us, and there will be several more over the year, so we hope this will be well supported.
