Thank you Phil Whitman

Last night, Phil delivered a very interesting presentation on aerial photography. He covered the early history which involved pigeons, kites balloons and planes to the present day drones. The presentation sparked a lot of interest and discussion and ended with a video on the very recent Avalon Air Show. Phil also showed some of his aerial and drone images.

It was a great night, which was enjoyed by everyone. Thank you Phil.

Thank you Bill Chambers

Last week Bill Chambers delivered a practical workshop on “Painting with Light”. As usual, Bill hit us with a wealth of information ranging from making up your own tools and toys to the process of gaining different images by using different tools and of course, doing it safely. The night was informative, interesting and participants had the chance to make their own images. It was a great night and of course, Bill gave the” grey matter” a good kick start!
