Camera Club Workshop

It was a gloriously sunny day at Blackwater car park, just off Rhinefield Ornamental Drive.  Christine, Pat , Wendy and Sandie met with Keith Thompson to take part in an onsite Flowing Water workshop. Wearing wellies, (to get in the water if needed) they set off to find some flowing water – rather difficult with the dry weather experienced during the June, however, luck was on their side and  some moving water was found.

Keith explained how to set up the cameras on tripods followed by individual coaching to programme each cameras. What was needed was a small aperture of F25, a slow shutter speed 1/6 of a second and an ISO of 100.

After taking photographs, the group went to the Rhinefield Hotel to photograph their fountains. Once again Keith helped with setting up tripods and cameras.  After all the hard work in the heat, a cuppa and cold drinks were well deserved. Unfortunately, Keith had to leave but not before the group presented him with a small gift as a thank you for giving up his valuable time to give the workshop.
