Skills Night – Tuesday 27th November 7pm – Shiny Christmas Ornaments

Don’t forget your cameras and flashes/speedlights and shiny Christmas ornaments for tomorrow night’s Skills Night. We will be photographing these reflective ornaments to show how to deal with specular highlights and reflective return.

Coffee Catch-up Night

Don’t forget Tuesday night (6th November) is our first Coffee Catch-up at Jilly’s Cafe, 6-7pm.

Our first night will be about making sure we cover what ‘you’ want over the next year.

Each night will discover a new micro-skill, that we will learn about….them put into practice!

The first meeting of the month will introduce the micro-skill that will become our online photo competition subject! That way you learn, do, show!

This first month, we will be learning about:
White Balance

It’ll only cost you a gold coin and the purchase of a coffee/drink, or coffee and cake (Jilly’s has marvelous cakes!)

Meet you at Jilly’s, Margaret Street, just down from the Neil Street intersection. 6pm. Tuesday night.
