Wednesday 1 July: Get Off Auto - Digital SLR Photography Simplified

Mike Klencher will be here for this camera workshop showing us how to get off the auto settings! We will spend most of our time on basic photographic theory in order to produce better pictures. You will learn about the most necessary technical stuff in a nice casual way. So don’t be afraid. It's all hands-on and what we discuss you get to set on your camera straight away. Some useful handouts will be there for you to take home and help your further study.

Please bring your digital SLR camera ready with enough battery power and sufficient memory available. Pen and paper to take notes.

Wednesday 2 September with Fraser Merrick for Jaywick Sounds

Join Frazer Merrick from CLIP for a walk along the Jaywick coastline. We’ll listen to bird song, insects and even underwater, exploring and identify the various vocal inhabitants.
