Important Announcements

Bill Chambers Presentation 12 June 2018.

Thank you Bill Chambers for another great presentation tonight. You have taken away a lot of the mystery concerning F stops, shutter speed, ISO settings and depth of field. Those of us who attended tonight learned that the DSLR camera offer the photographer flexibility and the ability to control the 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.
