April's meeting


At the last meeting on 3rd April, Ken Ramsey presented a rerun of his earlier talk about the aspects of ‘Focal Length’.  The presentation was to a bigger audience and the feedback was very positive and Ken managed to demystify the relationship between focal length, depth of field and aperture.

Jenny Garside occupied the second half of the meeting with a fabulous mix of photographs from her recent ’round the world’ holiday with husband Mike.  A very small selection is shown here:

March's meeting


The subject matter at the meeting on Wednesday 6th March was ‘Focal Length’.

Ken Ramsey talked us through the various aspects of focal length and the impact it has on ‘depth of field’ and ‘aperture’.

Delivering a talk about this important subject is very difficult and Ken broke it down into simple terms by way of a series of images and graphics.  

A few images from his talk are displayed here:




March’s theme was three letters of the alphabet (J, K, L) to begin the title of each image.

Here are some of the examples shared with the group:

Lonely Seal
Last of the Lancasters

February's meeting

The theme for February was Parallel Lines and/or Spherical Objects and as usual members used their imagination and came up with some excellent photos; some of which are shown here:

Members were treated to an insight of Ian Fordham’s recent visit to the Falklands.  Some of his photography is shown below:
