Notes from meeting 8 April ’14


Thanks to Doreen for her excellent talk on shutter speed for beginners/intermediate. A copy of her notes are attached to this message.


Here’s a link to the PDF re photography in public places.


We will hopefully be having an exhibition May or June. If members could keep this in mind when out taking photos or looking through their archive it will speed things up when the date is finallised.

Next meeting will be a talk by Luke Daniels on event photograph starting at 8:30 sharp. Thus our competition night will be postponed to the following meeting

Congratulation to Doreen for her winning shot “Through the Mirror”.  A clear winner, it ended up with nearly more points than the next three photos together! Unfortunately, we can’t publish it here by request.

2nd place was won jointly, by Fiona, Michael and Karl for the photographs of “Blossom Festival”, “Mirror” and “Bird Table” respectively. You can see these in the slideshow below.

Inspirational Shots – flowers

We had a quick slide show of different ideas while taking photos of flowers.  You can check out these links if you are still stuck for ideas

Other Business

We are trying to organise a talk by a famous wildlife photographer – watch this space for more information. It will probably have to be at 7 o’clock to accommodate the photographer travelling.

Thanks to those who’ve taken on the responsibility of looking after our social networking outlets. Links can be found on our side bar.

Next Weeks Competition (25th march) – Frames

An example of Framing

Our members’ competition for next week is Frames, i.e. use the composition tool of creating a frame within your photo. This can add extra depth, highlight an element within the photo and add context.

Remember, you can use almost anything as a frame around your images:

  • windows or doors,
  • overhanging branches,
  • arches and bridges,
  • parts of the body…

You can check out for some tips and inspiration.
