Meeting Plans – Monday 29th Jan

This coming Monday Richard and Kevin will be hosting a practical session as part 3 of the Basics of Portrait Photography Series.

During the session you will have the opportunity to work with a single fill light which is useful in a number of situations and a multiple light studio set up. 

This will be a PRACTICAL session so please bring along your cameras as there will be plenty of opportunity to use the equipment and take a few shots.

Weather permitting some of the evening will be outside so bring a decent coat in case it’s chilly…

Meeting Plans Monday 8th January 2018

Hi All,

We hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year.

This coming Monday we invite Brian Swinyard to give us a talk entitled “Personal Identity”
Don’t forget that this meeting will be the first in our new venue at The Cirencester Parish Centre in Gosditch Street…
We look forward to seeing you all on Monday evening.

18th December Meeting,

Ok, so its decided that tonight (18th December 2017) we will be out and about around the market place in Cirencester to get some Christmas shots and then afterwards into the Fleece for a warming pre-Christmas drink.

Tonight’s theme will be slightly different.

You are restricted to the Market place and Blackjack street (inc. the Swanyard) to get your shots which have to meet the criteria set (we will perhaps review them on the Christmas meal evening with a prize for the best? TBC).

The subjects are, Christmas Tree (s), Christmas Lights, Light Trails (long exposure), a Star (s), a Candle (s), Father Christmas, an Angel (s) and a Christmas reflection.

We will meet at 7:30pm outside the Church (in the Market place) and have 1 hour to get taking photos. Remember your “Basics” lessons. As its night, manual mode will be ideal as you will be able to control the dark and light parts of the photo to get an even exposure balance (auto modes will struggle).

At 8:30, meet in the Fleece for a pre-Christmas drink and chat.

I along with some other experienced members will be on hand to help those that are struggling with some hands on help (be it getting the exposure right or getting a good composition).

Bring your tripod and remote release if you have one?

Hope to see you there!
