Camera Craft


Night Photography – Wednesday 25th March – 7.00pm

Peter Jones is leading a practical session on night photography in Old Amersham so bring  your camera, tripod and remote shutter release, if you have one. If not please find the self timer on your camera before you come along.

Meet in Old Amersham Town Car Park, The Broadway. Peter’s mobile telephone number will be in the next newsletter so if you arrive late please give him a call.

Camera Craft sessions are open to all club members and more experienced members can often benefit from coming along. That was certainly the case in February, when Ted Kinsey covered Street Photography. As well as showing us a range of his successful images, including some from his Paris exhibition, he got us all working on some of his ‘failures’ with a questionnaire on why they didn’t work, followed by a group discussion.
All those who attended found it a fascinating evening so we owe a big thank you to Ted.

Dates for your diaries:
16 April    Making a Photobook – Paul Mitchell
27 May     Nature – out in the field (literally) with Peter Jones – 7.00pm start

Apologies for the date changes in March and May – we are totally reliant on members giving up their time to run Camera Craft sessions and have to fit in with their diaries.

Outing – Butterflies at Wisley – Friday 6th March

butterflyTime to dust off those macro lens and head to the glasshouse at Wisley to catch some butterflies. The glasshouse opens at 10.00am and no doubt there will be plenty to see in the gardens too. Make your own way there or contact Sandra (details in your members list or email Outings from the contacts page) if you need a lift – or indeed if you have room in your car.

If anyone feels able and willing to organise and run an outing please let Sandra know.
