24th September – Food Photography

For this night there is not a formal talk, but a practical night and Rhiannon hopes to put out a number of set ups to photograph, with the idea that you can repeat these at home. We will be exploring texture and arranging food to get the most out of it, using desk lamps for lighting.
You will need to bring your camera and a macro or close up lens may be useful if you have one.
If you have a favourite plate, bowl or table cloth that you would like to use or share bring it along. An extra odd desk lamp might be useful too. If anyone has any mini ‘prieser’ type figures to bring for some more jokey pictures do bring them along.
This should be another fun night and allow us to explore ‘Still Life’ setups and maybe have a nibble as well.

17th September – Open Competition

This week is the first of our competitions – the Open Digital.
There is no theme for this competition so anything goes (within reason).
Please submit your entries to Phil Gravett by Sunday 13th September at the latest.
Entries should be sized at maximum 1024 x 768 pixels and submitted to Phil’s email address.
Best of luck to all the entries.

10th September – Phil Gravett ‘Safari’

A big thanks to everyone who came to the first night of the new session last week. It was good to see so many people there. Thank you also for making the new faces so welcome. I would also like to say welcome to the Society to new member Grahame Pettite who joined us last Thursday.

This week is Members Night with Phil Gravett showing images and talking about his African Safari. I hope you will all be able to attend. It should be a very entertaining night.

For those of you who did not manage to pay your fees last week, please try and remember on Thursday.
