Friday 8th July 2011 – Clubnight


Davy Cooper and Mike  Knott were the first arrivals.   I got an opportunity to explain ISO to Mike and demonstrated its effect using my Sony Nex 5.

I must say that navigation through the Nikon menus is difficult and I had to seek some help from Alan and Gerry.  We left Mikes D90 setup with centre focus point active and suggested that he try shooting with Aperture Priority mode and change the f-stop and observe the results.

Mark Allen kindly conducted the critique on members photos tonight.   Judging by the buzz during the tea break, a wide range of topics was discussed.   Thanks to Christine and Helen for tea tonight.

Outside, there was a nice sunset and I demonstrated spot metering in manual mode to Helen.  This gave nice saturated sunset colours and dark silhouettes.   Maybe next meeting we will revisit this topic.

Apologies to Christine for not getting a chance to do some tutorials on Pictures to Exe, however I lent her a copy of Barry Beckham’s Tutorial. to work through.
