Long Compton Visit

Evening Trip to Long Compton
The club went on an evening visit to the beautiful Cotswolds village of Long Compton, Warwickshire, in the hope of taking a winning photograph for Long Compton’s first ever photographic competition and exhibition. The weather stayed kind, but dark clouds started rolling in later in the evening, leading to some good sky backgrounds. Who knows, one of the group may of taken a winning photograph!

Photo Editing Software tutorials

Any Camera Club ethic should be to encourage its members to help and support each other with any areas of their hobby that they need to gain more experience of and this is very true of all the software available for digital photo editing, retouching and image enhancement.
Three of our members presented small workshops of their previous images and experience of working with Adobe PhotoShop, Adobe Lightroom and Snapseed, an excellent app that runs on tablets and smartphones. Much hands-on experience was gained and more understanding of this fast-moving area of photographic technology.

Studio Training

Portrait Training Day
With a couple of lighting kits, and some willing internal models we started looking into the basics of portrait photography, lighting equipment and how settings on your camera or lighting rig altered the outcome of the image.
The session aimed to help in our preparation for a future event where we hope to rent a studio and use professional models. We rounded the meeting up with a short review of a few members photographs, covering everything from graffiti, deserts to sunsets.
