Club Meeting – Tuesday, 9th January 2018

Our first club meeting for 2018 is this coming Tuesday night (9 January 2018) at 7:00pm.  Instead of the usual club competition we will be running a training workshop looking at how to achieve the most appropriate exposure in our images.  This will involve viewing some videos and working in groups to better understand our camera.  So please bring along your camera for what should be a valuable learning experience.

Please don’t forget that the February 2018 competition images are due by midnight the 9th January 2018 – prints can be dropped off at the club meeting.
