NEXT MEETING …    7:30pm   Thursday 27th February 2020

Ladies versus Gents – Competition

Our popular battle of the sexes, with ladies on one side of the room and gents on the other, with a brave Judge somewhere in between!  Our two team leaders and their helpers will be making the final selection of 24 images each with at least 1 but no more than 3 images from each person participating.  A fun evening!

Upload Deadline extended to 15th Feb…
… Ladies v Gents: Upload up to 4 PDIs to be considered for selection by the two team captains.  At least one will be chosen!  

STOP PRESS Wednesday:  Match-an-image competition has been postponed & we will now host the match at Shaftesbury in November (i.e early next season).  We will hold over any submitted images until then which gives you time to upload lots more: no deadline for uploads yet!

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.
