Aperture Shutter Speed ISO Outing

Thank you Bill Chambers and Roy Killen for accompanying the group to the Belmont 16s club this morning. It was a glorious morning, topped off by the presence of an engaging group of people. Bill “cracked the whip” and we practised the skills, which he had covered on Wednesday night. Coffee at the club was good as well!

Bill has thrown down the gauntlet. He stated that he would be very happy to hear of a person who gains a Judge’s Choice and states that it was due to them learning how to use the correct settings on their camera!

Bill will be leading the group on Saturday 15 June 9am at Belmont 16s club, to practice our newly learned skills. Roy Killen will also be there to give a hand.

Thanks to our helpers, Thomas Buckwalter, Bill Chambers, Jill Helps, Katherine James, Rob Oyston, Susan Slack and Colin Schofield, the work of hanging the images, was quickly completed. A special thank you to Katherine James for organising and framing both exhibitions.
