Guildford Photographic Society (GPS) will be running our very successful, annual, Getting to Know Your Camera Workshop on Saturday 24 November 2018.

The workshop, which always receives excellent feedback, is intended for people relatively new to photography or who are ready to move beyond automatic camera settings.

The workshop runs from 10.00am until 4.00pm in Burpham Village Hall Guildford. The cost for non-GPS members is £80.00. Tickets are available from our website http://www.guildfordphotosoc.org.uk (last tab on the home page). There will be a maximum of twelve participants on the workshop to allow adequate time for interaction.

Peter Merry who developed and leads this workshop describes the scope and objectives of the session as follows:

“The manual for my camera runs to over 300 pages and is packed with features for everyone from sports enthusiasts to landscape photographers. With such a wide range of features it’s easy for a camera to seem complex and unwieldy, rather than a simple tool for taking great photographs.

The “Get to know your camera day” aims to give you the understanding you need to take control of your camera so that you can get on and take great photographs. We will be looking at the most important camera features in a way that is easy to grasp and quick to use.

The day is made up of a series of sessions, each including instruction, discussion and photography.

We will look at the main components of the camera, including the sensor, shutter, aperture and lens. We will explore how these can be used to create the composition, exposure, depth of field and sharpness that you want for your images.

We will use a variety of mode settings, from the fully automatic to the fully manual settings (looking at Program, Aperture and Shutter Priority options along the way). We will look at the pros and cons of each and work out which is best for you. We will also discuss the use of jpg/RAW image capture along with white balance, metering modes and exposure compensation.

By the end of the day, I hope you will feel able to take control of your camera to take great photos using decisions you can make quickly, with understanding and confidence.

If time permits we will also have a look getting your images from the camera to your computer and some simple processing tips.”

Please do feel free to contact me if you have any questions (wm_jamieson@yahoo.co.uk).

If anyone is considering going to this AV event, do take note of the parking arrangements. There are two small private car parks adjacent to the hall and neither is for use of visitors. There is a risk of being fined and/or clamped. The Morrison's car park is in two sections although it is not immediately obvious. The area closest to the store has a limit of two hours but if you proceed to either of the two sections furthest away (Zones A & B), parking is available all day. It is a short walk of 100 yards or so to the hall.

For those using a satnav for directions, the postcode given is for Morrison's which should avoid anyone going to the hall in error. The Morrison's is also a handy source of sandwiches etc. for the lunchtime break.
Regards

Exhibition of Prints by the Late Bill Wisden MBE Hon FRPS APAGB at the Jubilee Library, Brighton from Monday 11 February to Saturday 23 February 2019.

This exhibition is a celebration of the life and work of the distinguished Brighton photographer Bill Wisden MBE Hon FRPS. Bill was a member of the Brighton & Hove Camera Club from 1954 until his death in January 2018 and in honour of his talent, achievements and generosity we as a Club wish to honour Bill’s work.

This exhibition is only a small part of Bill’s Photographic life and is a mixture of his revolutionary darkroom prints and the digital work that he came to embrace even though he once swore he would never go digital.

Brighton & Hove Camera Club wants this exhibition to be a tribute to a man who is still greatly missed and will continue to be missed by everyone who loved him and learned so much from him.

VENUE: Jubilee Library, Jubilee Street, Brighton BN1 1GE
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday: 10am to 7pm
Wednesday, Friday, Saturday: 10am to 5pm
Sunday: 11am to 5pm
