The Digital Photography Book

The Digital Photography BookThe Digital Photography Book 
This is the first of three books written by Scott Kelby specifically for digital photographers. Although the references are based around Nikon products most of the book is beneficial regardless of camera make. Kelby has a particular writing style that may not appeal to some (English) tastes but he gets his point over very effectively. Volumes 2 and 3 along with this first volume dovetail together nicely, each taking the reader (novice by the writers standard) deeper into the subject.

The recent "Light" topic

Just to follow up on the "Light" topic from last week, I was listening to Women's Hour in the car and a photographer called Linda Rutenberg was a guest. She takes photos of flowers and gardens at night. One of her techniques was to use a very long exposure and "paint" the parts of the image she wants to capture with light using a torch. Very interesting I thought. Click here to see some of her work


Just a quick reminder that the Lacock Positive AGM will be held at the next meeting (10 June). We will also be reviewing our Manual efforts and hopefully have time for a quick presentation about exposure.
