I decided to visit my local camera club yesterday. The decision came about as i have decided to take some expert advice on board and improve my photos.
The meeting was held in a church hall at the rear of St Johns church. It was a huge turn out as it happens, about 45 members. This may have been due to a visit from a prominent photographer from Birmingham.
A slide show was provided of photos from said photographer, with commentary throughout.
There were some interesting photos , and plenty of humor thrown in.
I think i picked up a few tips, especially on Photoing moving subjects. It's interesting to hear what he liked to see in a photograph, as he is a prominent competition judge by all accounts.
I think i will enjoy my involvement in this club, and can't wait to get competitive. I will be in as a beginner to which i don't think there are many others in the club. Still, it makes life easier for me.
watch this space.
