Tips for Landscape Photography –

James will run through considerations for landscapes including: use of tripod, camera set up, filters, composition, short
cuts and tips. NB This workshop would dovetail well with Steve Bexon’s ‘Camera Techniques’

Unfortunately James was unable to attend due to a last minute work commitment so has been proposed that he may do this for one of the 1/2 evenings after Voting

But once again the evening put into question “Is this the sort of evening members want” because alought the responses to the questionnaire suggested it is only 14 members other than committee members and those doing the demonstrations participated.
