November 2020 Meeting
Our November meeting was our final get together for the year. Our quote for the month came from Jay Maisel “If you are out there shooting, things will happen for you. If you’re not out there, you’ll only hear about them”. For our photographic item of trivia, we took a look at the first ever colour photograph which was taken over 150 years ago. The subject appears to be a piece of jewellery and was produced by layering three separate photo sensitive plates, Thomas Sutton, who was an inventor and photographer, came up with the process and is also credited for being the inventor of the first SLR camera.
Fellow Shutterbug’s member, Steve Walmsley, presented a slide show he had produced showing the painting of the murals which now feature on two of the club’s external walls. We took a look at our prints for this month’s project “Your Choice 2020”. Our favourite photos taken during the year. We then grabbed our cameras and headed outside for a workshop on dynamic range and histograms. Next was a discussion on what themes we would adopt for next year’s monthly projects. A list can be found under our Monthly Project section further down the page. Finally, it was a cuppa and a chat to finish up the year for us..
