NEXT MEETING …    7:30pm   12th December 2019

Members Evening: The 10×20 Picture evening

A new type of evening that is proving popular amongst camera clubs.  Hopefully a lot of members will actively participate by making a slideshow/video with just 10 images, each to be shown for 20 seconds.  You may add a soundtrack commentary or music, or just silence and maybe say a few words while the slide show runs.  Not competitive at all: just a fun relaxed evening.  See our post on “Pecha Kucha” for more details or ask Bill/Chris/Helen for help.  If you can get files to us beforehand, we can make sure they run OK on the laptop.

Deadline 5th Dec Entry Form to submit name, title & filename – (find separate link under Print/PDI link).  Members with fibre-based broadband can also optionally upload their files, otherwise just remember to bring it on a memory stick on the evening!

Welcome to our virtual “Digital Workshop”

Workshops are an important part of learning and extending our photographic skills.  In addition to normal workshops, we have this area of the web limited to “members-only” where we have short practical articles on various aspects of digital photography, photo editing, software, storing and archiving of photographs.  Over time, we hope these will become a worthwhile resource to help those new to digital photography as well as more experienced members. Whether you’ve got the answers, or even more importantly, the questions, please get in touch to help us expand the topics covered.

The overall objective is to de-mystify the whole topic of digital photography and to help everyone learn from each other.

We’ve already begun to cover various topics including some of these…

  • From camera to computer – how to transfer and store images
  • Choosing and using photo organisers – making sure you stay in control
  • Backup and Archiving photographic files – the differences, and the pitfalls
  • Photographic software – especially highly rated Open Source & free
  • Photoshop (inc Elements) – basic techniques
  • RAW photography – the how, why, when and what?
  • Depth of field – some new easy ways to finding hyperfocal & DoF

Please use the drop-down list from “Pixels” in the menu above for the complete list of topics covered so far.  If you would like to help write one or suggest other topics, please get in contact.
