This Week...
Workshop Evening
Our workshop evenings are where we explore different photographic subjects in small groups. We rely on members sharing advice and techniques so bring along some images, your camera or your laptop, ask questions and be prepared to help others.
 
Beginners: Ted will be continuing to support members who are new to photography in our Beginners Group. Bring along some images if you'd like some informal comments and advice. 

Creative: Cat will be leading a discussion and demonstrations of creative techniques in Photoshop, Lightroom and On1 Effects. If you have a design tip to share then bring your laptop along and show us how to do it.

Image Discussion: We take a look at the images from previous competitions, along with some new images, and discuss what makes them successful. Bring along some images which you find inspiring. 

All The Gear...: Have you got some photography kit you don't know how to use, or would like some advice on what lens to use for a particular subject? Join our discussion on camera skills, lenses and lighting.
