Further Information for the Digital Photography II Group

The Group meets Fortnightly on Friday from 11th September 2020 in Liden Community Centre, Grundys, Liden, SN3 6HF from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
Next meeting: Fri, 6-Nov-20.

With meetings suspended for the moment, ideas are being sought for projects or other activities that can be done virtually. I'll circulate any ideas in a few days.

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.
