Camera Skills Workshops 2019… we need your input for topics

We had great feedback from the Camera Skills Workshops that Mike Martin led last year.  Mike is willing to run some more this year, but before we make arrangements, book venues, line up tutors etc we would like your feedback on what you would like to learn.  

Please think about it.  

Would you like a rerun of the workshops last year for those who missed out… or would you like a repeat to help it all sink in?

Were there topics we ran last year that you would like to explore in more detail?

Or is there something new you would like to learn about your camera technique in a hands on environment?

We’ll want your feedback either by email to Susan (reply to the email notification is fine), or at club night next Monday.  Workshops are likely to be planned for March on Saturdays.

Thanks everyone

Lightroom Workshop – using two monitors

For those who participated in John Sharple’s Lightroom workshops… and for any other member interested…

A question came up about using Lightroom with two monitors.  John says…

Here is a link to an article describing how to use two monitors in Lightroom. https://www.creative-photographer.com/two-monitors-lightroom/
It describes a number of way to achieve this and how to use it. I have tried it on LR6 and it works so is not restricted to LR CC.

Vacancy, Tutorial Co-ordinator – potentially job share

Would you like to help out with our monthly tutorials?  Have brilliant ideas for interesting topics?  Know the right kind of photographers we could invite to share their knowledge?  WE NEED YOU!!!

After a long time filling our tutorial sessions with interesting topics, John Frost is stepping down as Tutorial Co-ordinator.  BIG THANKS JOHN FOR ALL YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS.

John is quite happy to continue to help with tutorials, but would like someone to take over co-ordination.  Better still would be a small team to share the work and make it easier for everyone. 

If you’re interested, or just want to learn more please contact John, Toni or Susan
