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.
