Thank you Roy Killen

Roy’s presentation tonight was succinct and thought provoking.  Roy covered the principles of good photographic techniques and provided numerous examples to reinforce each point.  He also covered the principles of basic end processing and again illustrated each point with images.

Roy encouraged interaction and questions throughout the presentation.  Everyone who attended the session, from beginners to advanced, learned a lot tonight.

Thank you Roy for another fantastic session.

Roy Killen presents “Analysing, Evaluating and Improving Your Photographs” Wednesday 14 August 7.15pm

This presentation will help members to evaluate, analyse and improve their  own images, at the time of capture and in end processing.  Please be prepared to take notes during this presentation because Roy is not uploading a tutorial for it.

Roy gave a brilliant tutorial on resizing images presentation at the end of July. Those of us who thought we knew it all, were given a wealth of hints and tips. You will find Roy’s tutorial on his website.   Thank you Roy.  Your presentations are always appreciated.
