We will mostly address the selection of cameras, lenses and attachments for these techniques, paying particular reference to lighting requirements and focussing problems. There will be opportunities for hands-on exploration of several of the techniques discussed and some time for discussions of suitable matter for close-up and macro, and the use of specialist software for post- processing.

As the title suggests, this session is an opportunity to have some of your images reviewed and discussed by some of the other members in the club.  Please bring three images to be reviewed on a memory stick, which should ideally contain nothing else.  Filenames should take the form of 1-author’s name, e.g. 1-name, 2-name, 3-name. The image files should be in jpg format in sRGB colour space with dimensions no greater than 1400×1050 pixels, our backup projector resolution. Please aim to have a title for each image, it’s good practice for competitions.
