1     Competition:             Landscape/Seascape

An image featuring the natural scenery or terrain. Many people mistakenly believe taking a landscape is easy, but there are so many variables that getting that excellent landscape image can be quite challenging!

Ray Goulter will give a presentation on the many forms of composition before we get into the evening’s activities.

We return to the grass-roots of photography. Do you know how to control the shutter speed, ISO, aperture, and lenses on your camera? The many aspects of taking a photograph will be discussed in tonight’s “hands-on” workshop. Bring your favourite camera along.

No studio set-ups here, nor use of any form of man-made light source.
