Photo Society inaugural meeting & Workshop for beginners


15 November 2014, 10am, Peter Richards Room. Meet and greet others interested in photography and have your say about what the society should do this year. Also, feel free to stay on and get involved with the:

Camera workshop for beginners (and refreshers) organised by the Hughes Hall Photo Society

15 November 2014, approx. 10.45am, Peter Richards Room Are you new to photography? Did you once know how a camera works but now no longer recall what all these settings were actually for? Would you like to understand how aperture, shutter speed, sensitivity, and other parameters affect the photos you get and how to make them work for you? If so, you may be interested in attending this session.

The workshop will be led by Joachim Wabnig, with help of other Photo Soc members (proficient photographers are also welcome to attend – to help and meet other people with similar interests).

To make most of the workshop, you are encouraged to take your camera along (so that you can work with a familiar piece of kit), but feel free to attend even if you do not have a camera – we will provide some SLRs to use on the day.

To confirm your attendance or with any further enquiries please contact Aga Iwasiewicz-Wabnig on ai261.

Coming soon: Photo composition workshop, date TBC

Do you want to learn how to compose your photographs to achieve clean, striking images? Do you want to know how to use the scene/lighting/camera settings to your advantage, creating the photos your way, instead of taking point-and-shoot snapshots? What rules can be helpful and how/when to use them (or neglect them)? Then you may be interested to keep an eye out for this HH Photo Soc workshop!
