03/02/20To all members.
As promised, although a little later in the season than we had hoped, we have a arranged a first class session for those newer to photography.
THURSDAY 2ND APRIL - LEARNING BASIC CAMERA SKILLS SESSION . IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN RECEIVING HELP AND INFORMATION FROM A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER AND TRAINER THEN .. READ ON !
The club has engaged the services of Bob Brind-Surch to come along and give some excellent and detailed advice to those who are newer to photography or for those who feel they would gain from attending this one-off, evening event.
It is to be held in the Bowls Club - our normal venue.
Full details will be on a form on the desk on Tuesday. There will be a small charge and this will be a maximum of £8. Laptops are NOT required.
There will be a limit of 20 places - on the basis that, for beginners, more benefit will be gained within a small group format. The latest date we need to know that you are interested is 11th February.
Please note, if we are oversubscribed priority will be given to those who, over the recent past, have requested help with camera skills.
This talk will cover a large number of areas including:
* Aperture & Shutter priority modes
* f stops
* depth of field
* exposure / exposure compensation
* basic composition
Each member who adds his or her name to the list will then be sent a very short questionnaire to ensure Bob has a good idea of the current skills of each participant.
We will also plan to have on hand a couple of more experienced members from the Club who will help to follow up any difficulties with basic camera operating skills where time does not allow on the evening.
Very early during the autumn we will be organising an event for those wishing to improve their basic/intermediate processing/manipulation skills - more about that later in the year.
For our members who are very experienced and knowledgeable in photography - we haven't forgotten you and we are also in the midst of looking at various options of an additional and suitable event for you. Again, more about that later in the year.

Photography ideas :-
1st Feb 15th March ELY. Ely Cathedral appears to have an interesting exhibition entitled Crowns & Gowns which will showcase a number of gowns and outfits from some global and award-winning productions e.g. The Crown, The Kings Speech and Macbeth amongst others. I have been in touch with them and photography is allowed for the items in the exhibition normal Cathedral fees apply.
DPI Reminder. Do remember to save a digital copy of the PRINTs that you enter for the Annual Competition. These will then be ready to use for the club and league competitions next season. The image must be a maximum of 1600 pixels wide or 1200pixels high or both, sRGB and as a jpeg.. All prints that receive good marks in the Exhibition are automatically considered for selection for external competitions, both as prints and as dpis. You might wish to remember that often projectors do lighten images when viewed on the large screen. If you feel you have problems with this we might be able to offer help if you mention it to any of the committee.
