Workshop information for the 2016-17 season
With input from Roger Crocombe and other BRCC members we run a series of monthly workshops right through the club year. (Please note that the workshops will continue to run right through the 'closed' season).
The workshops will take place on a Saturday morning between 09:30 and 12:30 in the small hall at St. Mary's Centre which is situated directly behind the main hall in the same building.
Note new times!!
Because of space limitations attendance will initially be limited to 25 BRCC members only, on a first come first served basis,
at a cost of £5 per person (to cover hall costs), payable at time of booking.
A booking form will be circulated at least two weeks in advance of each meeting.
Practical visits are are for members to go out and take pictures as a group. They are open to all whether you have atended any related workshop or not. Details for each will be on the Noticeboard about six weeks in advance.
The intention is to make a sheet of notes available to everyone attending at the end of each meeting which will cover the main points covered.
The programme outlined below will follow a logical sequence from camera use and image capture through to the production of a finished print/pdi exploring specific areas of photography e.g. landscape, macro, etc and any specific equipment/techniques required in those areas in order to create successful images.
Some of the content/dates may change depending upon hall/speaker availability. Plenty of notice of any changes will be given.
The purpose of these and future workshops is to improve everyone's understanding and help all to get more enjoyment and pleasure out of our hobby.
NOTE: Printed notes for these workshops will be available in the members' area after each workshop.
