As you may be aware the the motivational theme for our next meeting (September, as we do not have a monthly meeting in August) is Macro Photography.
At this month's club
meeting it was decided that we should try to arrange the photoshoot for
this month around this theme. Accordingly our usual meeting place of The Cabin
in Rossinver has now been booked from 7:30pm to 10:00pm for next
Wednesday (15th July) for a session in which members can find out what
is meant by (and try their hands at) macro photography.
Club member Padraig Thornton
says he will bring his dedicated Canon macro lens with him, and has
kindly offered to allow those members with a Canon camera to try this lens on
their cameras if they wish; and member Marty Cooke will have his 105mm Nikon macro lens with him and is happy to give those members who shoot with a Nikon the
opportunity to try this out on their cameras.
We will also
look at ways in which it may be possible to shoot macro type photographs
if you do not have a macro lens, or do not have a camera on which you can
change the lens.
If the evening is fine we may be able to
get some macro shots of flowers or insects outside The Cabin. If not we
shall work indoors.
As well having your camera with you,
bring along a tripod if you have one. And if you have any small objects
that you think may be suitable subjects for macro photography bring
those with you as well.
Hoping to see as as many of you as possible on the night.
