No Comments

Once again the gods have conspired against us and our old friend Fez has had to pull out of next Thursday. Apologies for this but we will reschedule him later in the season. We are delighted to say that at very short notice we have been able to secure the services of Tony Gervis FRPS who is going to present ” One man and his van”. A wild tale of a solo trip of 19000 miles in his camper van across Europe, Turkey ,Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and several more stans, Russia, Belarus and more. Guaranteed to be an entertaining evening!

P.S. Following on from the inspirational presentation last week from Jeanette Lendon, the Smart Phone Photo Shoot originally scheduled for the 25th November will also be move to later in the season giving members more time to practice some of the techniques discussed last week. The programme was changed to accommodate the rescheduled Fez … and then … well you know !!!!

18th November: Jeanette Lendon – The Art of Smartphone Photography

No Comments
Smartphone

We used to have phones that took photos. we now have cameras that make phone calls. If you own a smartphone, then you own a camera, and if you own a camera, you have the tools to create stunning images and video content. Smartphone photography has gained greater kudos over the last few years, mainly due to the fact that the camera capabilities on phones can now rival DSLRs.

11th November: ‘Hybrid’ meeting

No Comments

This weeks meeting (11th Nov) is a members meeting.

As promised we are trialling a meeting at the club hall twinned with a Zoom presentation for everyone. Members are invited to turn up at the club in the hall on Thursday night and participate in person, or participate through the published Zoom meeting. Rob Dyer our print secretary will be hosting and running the meeting from the hall, I will be hosting the Zoom session from home. There will be no refreshments at half-time in hall, so you may want to bring a bottle of water/soft drink with you.

Hand sanitiser will be available and we would ask that all members attending the hall please wear a face covering when in the hall as it will not be practical to open the windows and doors.

Please understand that this is an experimental meeting to explore the possibility of running hybrid meetings simultaneously online with Zoom and in the hall. It will be technically challenging and may or may not work, but at least we will have given it a go.

This members evening is the best opportunity to do this so that we don’t risk disruption to paid speakers or competition judging.

Please keep an eye at the website (trowbridgecc.co.uk) for further updates.

Previous members and potential new members from the Facebook group are invited to attend in person or by zoom and have been included on this email, The link to the zoom meeting is posted on the website.

Change to the published Programme.


Unfortunately our good friend Fez Parker who was due to present to us on 28th October has had some technical issues . Therefore we have had to delay his talk on Drones until later in the season.
