Close-up & Macro Photography with Derek Gale

Derek Gale has been a photographer for many years, enjoying both the film and digital eras.  Tonight he will bring us one of his latest talks:  Close-up & Macro Photography.

Derek writes:

“I love looking for the less obvious and using techniques such as camera movement and “bokeh” to produce abstract images. I also love helping people learn new techniques, and talking about my work to clubs and societies.

Derek’s macro talk covers the equipment required, techniques, issues that arise – and how to solve them, and lighting for macro.

From comments on Derek’s website this talk has been very well received by other Clubs and I am sure it will be very enjoyable and also a great learning experience.

Members do not need to Register.

Non-members please sign up on Eventbrite here:

The fee for attending this meeting is just £5 but If you decide to join the Club, this fee will be refunded!

N.B. The meeting will be in person at The Bell Inn, Hampton, but Derek will be delivering his talk via zoom due to distance. Being in person gives us the opportunity to socialise during the break and discuss the talk afterwards in a friendly and sociable environment, which we prefer to an entirely zoom event.
