Next meeting:

On Wednesday, July 13th 7pm at the Haven Arms we will be holding a ‘Show and Tell’ meeting with an opportunity for constructive criticism aimed at improving your photography.

Please bring in your work (up to 5 photos) taken in the last few weeks on a memory stick on the night or email in advance to viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk – and please indicate if you wish your work to be included in the anonymous constructive criticism session or not (you can opt just to show your work).

Lighting sessions:

We intend to hold some lighting sessions for smaller groups of people (no more than 5 so everyone has a chance to have a go) with a chance to practice and experiment with lighting for portraits and effects. We’ll play with the placement of lights, and the resulting effects, and explore different styles of lighting. This will take place over a couple of hours on different times days/nights to the club meetings.

Interested? Just let us know at viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk or otherwise contact Ray Duffill.
