This Week... 
Workshop - Stitching, Seasons and Sensors

In a change to the published programme... this week our committee members will be leading a workshop on stitching, seasons and sensors.
Ever wanted to replicate the look of medium format images?

Bring your cameras and laptops as Ant will be teaching us the Brenizer method and stitching images together for amazing results. Ideally your camera should have a minimum of a 50mm lens, a 85mm or up to 150mm will be perfect.

Talking of combining images, Steve will be sharing the techniques behind his cup-winning "Seasons in a Jar" triptych.

George will then explain why your camera sensor invents two-thirds of your image.
To round off the evening, we'll take a look at some of your images from the speed workshop, so bring them along on a memory stick.

7th February 2019
Workshop Evening

Our theme this month will be exploring depth of field in photography. We'll be replicating the old masters with a still life image with everything in focus, and we'll be creating abstract images by reducing our depth of field.

Please bring some props for the still life - flowers, fruit, candlesticks, pottery, jugs etc. anything which would be suitable for an old master! 

14th February
Photography Unplugged

To raise funds for an upcoming school photography trip, Beth Christie and two of her fellow GCSE Photography students will critique our "unplugged" images for a small donation.

Images should have a minimum of manipulation, replicating what you could achieve "in-camera" or in a traditional darkroom. Cropping and changes in exposure using Lightroom or Photoshop are allowed, but healing or cloning, adding additional content layers, textures or filters is not allowed. 

Members will be able to upload two images via Photo Entry for £2 per image. Fees should be given to our Treasurer on the night of the critique.
