How I Do It

On 15th September, our meeting on software techniques was well attended.
Jason Feather started us off with a demonstration of the power of Snapseed and Circle on a mobile phone. Most of the image adjustments familiar to Lightroom / Photoshop users are availble in Snapseed at the flick of a finger on this free app -how can you do without it? For the rich, an expenditure of under £2 will get you Circle which offers enormous creative possibilities - supply your own imagination.

Street Photography – John, Bridget and Freya Gill September 8 2016
John presented with support from wife Bridget and daughter Freya. The talk was illustrated by photographs from all three family members. One interesting point was the three different focal lengths used – John close-up at 28mm, Bridget 28-105, Freya mostly 105 and upwards.
John showed a variety of styles from the family and much to his obviously amused chagrin some of the biggest applause came for Bridget and Freya’s photos. It was an obvious source of interest for us to guess (usually accurately) who had taken the picture.

Thursday 1 September saw the first meeting of the new session. An impressive fourteen members altogether showed their work. So, with most submitting ten photographs, commentary on each was necessarily brief. It is always fascinating to hear the story behind an image. Some seriously stunning work was on show and we will no doubt see many of these images again in our competitions.
Treasurer Mathew was gainfully employed taking subscriptions with his impressive pre-printed receipts.
Along with a nice catch-up chat, it was a great start to the 2016-17 year!
