Today's Meeting

Hi members,

We had our new, rather large TV delivered to be used for the first time. However there were some technical hitches and we had to resort to the overhead projector for one more time. Next time we'll be up and running with vast superior picture and colour qality.

We started off with a showing of members' pictures of people following the topic discussed at the last meeting.

Next Meeting - Monday 8th July - 11.00 AM

Hi Members,

We start our first meeting of term 3 with a slideshow of photos members took at our outing on the 24th June to Wilson's Outlook. My humble contribution is the new header of this blog, made from two pictures, stitched together with Photoshop Elements 10.

Our main topic on Monday will be photographing people. Candid shots, rather than staged portrait photography.

To this end, we ask you to bring along your cameras so we can practice taking photos of each other. Don't be shy now!
