Meeting Reminder Wed 10 October 2012

Just a reminder to all that our next meeting will be Wednesday 10th. October in the R.S.L. hall at 7.30pm.

The subject for this meeting is Landscape Photography. We have an expert guest presenter and I'm sure the evening will be interesting and entertaining. Bring along your cameras and tripods and special lens, if you have one. Don't be shy - we are all here to learn and have fun. It would be fantastic to have a large roll up to support our guest.

This month's Capture an Idea was "SILVER". Please bring it along as a print 10x 15cm. up to A4. Those who could not attend last month's meeting still have the opportunity to bring along their "Astronomical" print.

Bring along your homework based on last months meeting topic on a memory stick - 4 photos - a) A star trail b) A night portrait c) A night landscape and d) Your personal choice from our " Farm visit". For those who couldn't attend our farm visit, it's your personal choice.
