Many of you have expressed an interest to see evenings of information and instruction on the evening syllabus. John has kindly put together a series of new briefings on creating images.

Following on from last year, three are planned-in and will be held on Thursday evenings.

These are:

1 – Aperture – 2/1/19
2 – Shutter Speed – 24/1/19
3 – ISO – 21/2/19

As always I am sure you will give John your full support and each of us will probably learn something new.

Questions are always welcome.

We've now covered Aperture, so next up in just a few days is Shutter Speed.

There's a bit to cover, and as mentioned this last Thursday at the club, if you have an image that relies on Shutter Speed in some way, then please bring it along and we may well have a look at a few. It's not a competition, but hopefully we can have some discussion.
Best regards

John

Aperture and Shutter speed have been covered, so on Thursday this week we look at the third variable, ISO.

The first section will look at how it relates to film images and development, with some examples of prints from my archive. Happily, in those days I recorded the technical details on many of the prints, so we can see for ourselves how they were made.

The second section will look at exactly how far we can go with a variety of cameras, before the results descend into undecipherable mush. And indeed how far we can go with no discernable drop in quality. Cameras covered include a compact plus APS-C and Full Frame models from canon, Nikon, Pentax and Sony. Find out which one you need for low light photography!

Finally, the third section will cover the why and via a series of digital images explore why the ISO used was chosen.

Hopefully a bit interactive as well, so if you have an amazing image that shows some aspect of ISO then by all means bring it along and we'll have a look if time permits. One image each please, just in case we get inundated.... :[]
Best regards

John
