Derek started the meeting by reminding us that at the next meeting we had a guest speaker, Marcus Macadam, who would be talking on Photographing your local landscape and Travel photography. Corsham had been invited and several of their members intended coming along, and members’ guests were also welcome. All guests to pay £2.
On 29th October we are having an autumn shoot, meeting at Westonbirt Arboretum at 10.30 at the welcome building. Please let Sue know if you are intending to come along so that we don’t walk off without anyone.
A little problem then needed resolving before we could review our Action pictures. Our reliable laptop and projector guardian had, we think, disappeared into the wilds of Exmoor. 2 laptops and an iPad were rummaged from member’s belongings, and we gathered in groups to review the images.
An excellent set of images were submitted and each member talked us through their image and answered questions from the floor and a positive discussion ensued over each image. In a funny way, it was a more intimate appraisal, and everyone very supportive of a make shift review evening.
After tea break we again gathered round in groups of roughly 4 to critique images brought in by members. Once again this small intimate approach worked exceedingly well. Certainly my group were positive and informative with added suggestions on techniques to use post production to enhance aspects of the images.
