LAST MONTH’S MEETING
Wednesday, 15th September
Eddie Hyde – A comprehensive exploration of the creative use of shutter speed. This was a very enjoyable and informative evening. Eddie presented a number of his pictures to demonstrate how varying shutter speed can demonstrate motion in different ways. Fast speeds freeze the image in crisp detail; slower speeds allow motion blur of either the subject or the background. As well as showing the effects he displayed they shutter speed used for each image and explained the best ways of showing motion for a range of subjects. A useful and enjoyable learning experience for us all!
Wednesday, 17th November
