Extended Club Season

HPS Members will know that we are staying open this year throughout May, and hosting some practicals on Friday nights. The coming event on 8th May is about scanning. If you wish to brush up a bit on print and film scanning please come along. If you have some images (negs, slides, prints) you wish to digitise - bring them along. Also bring a memory stick to take your images home again.

As these evenings are aimed at photographic 'practicalities' also take the opportunity to bring along your camera, if you have any issues, so you can chat to others. The 'sharing' of experience with mentors is all part of the 'fun'.

The following Friday 15th May will be about 'macro' when Margaret and John Sixsmith will be on hand to demonstrate their superb technique. Again these are 'informal' in house evenings so take the opportunity to talk with others who may be able to assist you with something.

The following Friday 22nd May is a post processing night with an focus on RAW over JPEG and the basics of Photoshop.

Finally on Friday 29th May we're taking advantage of the late evenings with some outdoor photography followed by a critique and discussion about exposure etc. Bring along your camera.

If anyone has a specific practical photographic issue, please email me and we'll try to organise someone or something to help. Les Pickstock. (les@lespickstock.co.uk)
