Firstly, a big thank you to all 37 of you who came on the trip to Ladybower on Sunday! There are some stunning photos on the facebook group, so take a look, here.
This week, the meeting will have a similar setup to last week. There will be two sections to it; starting at 7:15pm (so start to arrive around 7pm) in The Arts Tower LT6 will be Part 2 of the beginners session (the basic information you learnt last week but with a chance to practice the different settings in groups or individually and learn how they effect your photos). The second half of the meeting will start at 8pm in The Arts Tower LT8 where we will be practicing peopleless portraits. Peopleless portraits are a way of showing the personality and character of a person without the actual person in the photo, so bring along some objects that you think define you. Another way of doing it, is by emptying your bag/pockets and taking a photo of those objects. Here and here are a few examples. It is usually good to have a nice background, so it might be an idea to bring along some paper or material if you are not happy with using the tables or floor as a background.
You can come to one or both of the meetings. It will be the last free meeting for non members, so there will be a chance to buy membership throughout the entire second session. There will also be tea and biscuits so remember to bring a mug!
Finally we are having a Halloween social, the Facebook event is here, it would be great to see you all so save the date!
