Ask the experts

This is one of our more regular social evenings where members can pop along and ask somebody about photography. Normal Meetups can be a bit hectic and getting to talk to someone can be a bit of a headache.

When we say 'experts' it can be anyone in the group as there is a wide range of skills and abilities, but the idea is to share the information.

As some people may have questions regarding the Photoshop Evening, or may want to know something raised in the Before and After evening, I'll be bringing my laptop and a (relatively) large monitor along to set up in the main room where I'll be happy to demonstrate some Photoshop techniques if anybody wants help. I can't promise that I'll get round to everything, tho!

    Always good to have the opportunity to chat to everyone. Didn't get the laptop and monitor set up in the end, but there was plenty of other things to talk about. Many thanks to all who attended and for those who dished out information. That's what it's all about. Learning and sharing.

    I have a feeling that the experts are far too knowledgeable, and its a good job for a numpty like me, that all their knowledge comes out in a patient and friendly way. Many thanks again

      Not sure Marj , i think Trevor might have a Nikon but he hates it. Tell him you think Canons are far superior and you'll be instant friends

      Ignore Peter R, he's just winding Trevor up, Owens a Nikon man

    This is brilliant, since I can get to speak to more amateur photographers and find out which good cameras is good to invest. I am still taking relatively good pictures, but only on my Samsung Galaxy phone.

      The most important thing to get fixed into your mind whilst researching photographic equipment is your budget. Figure out how much you want to spend, then look into what type of photography you're likely to be doing the most and it all works from there.

  • Marj

    Thanks Arthur for the offer, which is accepted & Peter I like Custard Creams !!!

    March 30, 2014

  • Arthur P.

    I'll be willing to help you on apertures, depth of field and manual focus Marj.

    Owens the Nikon Man, Arthur if you want a general chat, me if you want a biscuit.
