26th February was a members’ meeting and the monthly subject was By Candlelight which proved difficult. There were church candles to home candles. Brian had one photo which appeared to be just a candle but when enhanced showed the face behind the candle.
We also had photos of waves on the shore and were shown how areas could be enhanced by “dodge and burn” to bring out details. There were too some lovely wildlife shots of swans fighting and also dragonflies and birds.
Our meeting on the second Tuesday of the month was a hands-on session looking at various ways to support a camera when taking photographs from big professional tripods to small pocket-sized tripods. We then looked at what we take with us when we go out taking photographs. This raised the question do we need to carry everything and how do we reduce the weight.
We also had a quick look at how we transfer the images from camera to computer and also how to view images straight from the camera on a big monitor. This will be looked at in more detail later in the programme.
Our next meeting will be viewing members pictures and discussing any subject that is raised with the monthly subject being ‘’Against The Light’’. Members put in up to 10 images to be shown and commented on by all at the meeting.
Our programme is as usual very fluid which lets members’ questions be addressed.
The main aim of the group is to keep the meetings friendly and relaxed with all members enjoying our hobby and sharing their knowledge with everyone else.

Monthly subject mornings
Members to bring a maximum of 10 digital images of the set subject.
These will be shown in the second half of the mornings presentation.
To save time on the morning of the meeting images can also be sent by Dropbox or email to    adrian.rowlands3@gmail.com

Field Trips
All field trips are attended at members own risk.
When we visit local attractions they will have carried out their own risk assessments and you are advised to note their recomendations and act accordingly.
On other field trips to the Cornish countryside most of us are aware of trip dangers and uneven ground and the need to wear suitable footwear and clothes to suit the conditions.
Be sensible and safe. Take only photographs and leave only footprints.
