Monday 24th September Tutorial- Bill Chambers with “Colour Perception”

Our guest speaker will be from the man who loves underwater photography Bill Chambers who’s presentation is called “Colour Perception” – ( ‘Why Don’t My Images Show the Colour I Remember When I Took the Shot?’ )

Everyone perceives colour differently – the presentation explores some of the reasons why – from simply being “Colour Blind” through to the influence of medications such as ‘Viagra’ (that one is always of interest to the fellahs!)… 😉

Something in there for all photographers. 

This will an evening not to miss when it comes to understanding “Colour Perception”
