Members judging the Individual Competition

Following the competition, there will be an opportunity to improve your skills when using flash. We will set up a background, some lights and live Lightroom displayed on the large screen so that we can discuss how to set up flash, speed/iso using a list meter, etc, and see the different ways to achieve light and dark subject and backgrounds. Should be an interesting night.
 
Photographers are welcome to join us at our evenings by contacting the Secretary at secretary@stamford-photosoc.org.uk
