Meeting: Thursday 3 November 2016

Members will be reviewing images taken for the following challenges:
(1) Trains, Boats, Planes (3 images allowed)
(2) Industry ( 2 images allowed)

Learning points and other items will be covered as time permits.

Our previous meeting featured speaker Philip Mugridge, who showed plentiful DPIs of his wildlife photography mostly taken in the Forest of Dean where he lives. He explained about his use of portable hides and pre-focusing technique, bird feeding habits, cameras and lens used and setting up props from a handy wood nearby.  His images included both common and unusual garden birds and birds of prey such as redpoll, raven, hawfinch.  Philip also showed some mammals such as deer, wild boar and water vole as well as butterflies and dragonflies.  A very entertaining evening!

Meeting: Thursday 20 October 2016

An evening with a speaker - Philip Mugridge - who specialises in wildlife photography is planned for our next meeting.  Members plus friends and family or anyone interested in wildlife &/or photography are welcome to join us for the evening for a small donation.

Our last meeting proved there is a strong interest and a lot of ability for wildlife photography as we reviewed images for the subjects Birds, Bees and Butterflies.  Birds proved the most popular category, bees second and a concern that not many butterflies had actually been seen this summer.  

Member Howard Morland showed his first AV composed of images taken in Denmark - we enjoyed the waterside scenes, the Danish palette and a reminder of sunny days!
