Steve Piggot last visited our Club with Malcolm Fackender sometime last year. At that time Steve was working for Adeal Photographics and since then Adeal have now aligned with the Vitec Group who provide a wide range of Photographic Accessories and equipment.
Steve says …
Cameras take the image, but accessories make it.
While we all know that the camera and lens take the image, we forget that it’s often the accessories that make the image. Whether it’s filters helping you get that spectacular sunrise, tripods making it possible to get those crystal clear long-time exposures or those modifiers that make that harsh speedlight usable. Accessories are the unrecognised heroes of photography, but figuring out what you need rather than what you want, can often be overwhelming.
In this short talk, we will discuss tripods, filters and lighting to help you figure out what’s best for you, your equipment and your style of photography.
