Bruce Pickering, a BPS old boy, with the assistance of his wife, who managed the projected images, provided us with a most interesting and entertaining evening. Bruce, who specialises in wildlife photography, spent the first part of his presentation demonstrating the various pieces of kit and comfort gear that he uses during the sometimes long wait that is required to catch the desired image. He imparted many useful tips for the would be wildlife photographer, such as using extension tubes on long lenses so as to increase the image size by bringing the focus point closer than the lens would otherwise allow.
