Club Challenge - Coast

Besides seeing all the images taken and chosen for the upcoming Tribattle with two other clubs, we spent time looking at members' posts for the challenge 'Coast'.  These highlighted a range of techniques used with a variety of equipment and, at minimum, reminded us to remember to straighten our horizons!

Our next meeting, March 22, will feature Adrian and Vanessa Herring talking on Image critique and Editing.  Brave members have given Adrian some images to critique and edit for the better!

Learning about Bokeh

We might struggle to pronounce the word correctly but we managed to produce examples of this useful technique both on a Club night and at home.

16 November Meeting Notes

We all braved the cold to take photos of Phil risking life and limb to provide entertainment and a photo opportunity.

Later at the children's play park Derek provided the illuminations for attachment to various moving objects (and people).

2nd November Meeting Notes

I hope those who came to Marcus MacAdam's talk last night went away inspired - maybe to feel braver about talking to people on their travels (before taking images of them!) or maybe just to put a (re)visit to Skye on their 'places to go' list!!
