PG MEETING – Tue. 12th NOVEMBER 2019 – “Introduction and Overview of using Speedlite”

Our Guest Speaker on Tuesday evening is former member Craig Parker.

Craig will be doing the first of two presentations covering the use of flash.

Tuesday’s talk/discussion will be about “lighting” using flash, viz.

  • Basics of Light
  • Basics of Flash
  • Exposure Options
  • On-Camera direct fill flash
  • On-Camera bounce flash
  • Off-Camera flash
  • The use of diffusers/light modifiers

You do not need to bring your Camera and flash. All you will need is a notebook and pen.

The next workshop scheduled for 10th March 2020 will be a hands-on using both your camera and flash.

Depending on the success of the first two workshops, it will be possible to wrap it all up with a full day’s session with a series of exercises both indoor and outdoor covering both on-camera and off-camera flash.

Craig is an excellent presenter and educator, so don’t miss this opportunity of learning how to take your photography to another level.

PARKING RESTRICTIONS AT THE SCHOOL – Effective Immediately.

The School has imposed some restrictions on where we can and cannot park when attending Club meetings and whilst this will not be an issue for the Movie Maker’s, I think that on the Photo Group competition nights when we have a a good roll up of members, late comers may have to double park or else park on Lewis Drive and walk up the steps; not the best for walking back down in the dark.

The restrictions apply to the covered area just outside the entrance to the School hall due to the fact that the thinly applied asphalt base is showing some damage and there also appears to be a problem with the ground sinking in places. Furthermore, we are not permitted to park on the grassed area in the top car park.

Fortunately, we can however park in both the bottom and top car parks !

Members co-operation and adherance to the above would be very much appreciated.

Thank you.
