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!
