An interesting Tuesday evening with lots of info and excellent images from Malcolm.
There was mixed feedback with regard to the delivery , Malcom received some of this feedback as he had asked for it , he did reply with regard to the delivery that he is 75 years old and doesn’t think as quickly now ,which is fair comment . So it depends what we want from a presentation .. he certainly supplied lots of lovely images , plenty of location detail , and a lot of generous information with regard to settings. He made me think about visiting some nature reserves .
This Tuesday there is no early class as it is Practical Night . Sales Table and Raffle !
Richard and I will be showing different ways to obtain images to stack – Focus Stacking .
This is a technique used in macro to obtain an image with sharpness all the way through .
With a shallow depth of field , you can lose focus towards the back of the object you are photographing .
By taking many images with the focus at different points you can produce a fully sharp image .
Please bring a camera and if you have them -tripod , trigger , bean bag rest ,macro lens , macro rings . If you don’t have any of these don’t worry !!
We will get in to smaller groups and I am sure you will be able to learn along with others in your group who have some of this equipment .
Richard and I will then host a 7pm class to show you how to stack those images with your software .
It really is easier than it sounds …Honest !
Set up will be table at front , welcome desk , tea tables and tables all along under the windows please , with chairs out for initial demo
I am off to Bromsgrove School where we had the stand at the Creative Showcase yesterday and again today . Lots of interest and a very good representation of the club , with plenty of members coming along to help . It is a great social side to the club and people can see what a happy atmosphere we have at the club . The stand looks excellent , David et al did a grand job. Do come along and join the fun.
Handing in for the PDI is on Tuesday latest .
Please note there are roadworks coming at The Oakalls roundabout that may delay people’s journey to club .
So basically camera , money for the raffle , and for the sales table , and bring any unwanted camera gear to pop on the sales table (this can be a #s a full donation to the club , or as 15% of sales price to the club -please label fully if this is the case )
See you Tuesday
