|Meeting time:||2:30 - 4:00 Third Monday of each month restarting in October 2021|
This group is designed to meet the needs of members who have a digital camera or are about to buy one and who want to learn how to get the most from their camera. It will concentrate on the basics of digital photography. A typical list of topics is given below.
Meeting Topics for 2020 were:
|Camera Controls & a comparison of Camera types|
|Editing your photos with Picasa|
|Creating a Powerpoint slide show|
|Portrait photgraphy - practical session|
|Comparison of Picasa, and your in-camera's edit capabilities|
|Outdoor visit (weather permitting)|
|Turning your photos and short-video sequences into a short movie|
Each meeting (excluding Outdoor Visits) starts with a review of up to four photos submitted by group members, followed by an illustrated talk of up to thirty minutes duration on a topic of their own choice by a group member and finally a session by one of the Group Leaders on topics listed above.
Photo Topics for Review at the next meeting
The topics will relate to the previous month's Group Leader's session and are announced following that session.
