Further Information for the Digital Photography II Group

The sessions are aimed for those less familiar with their cameras and wanting to learn to use them in other than 'auto' mode. Members will be encouraged to take images based on specific criteria and bring them back to subsequent meetings so that the effects of those criteria can then be discussed.
