Welcome to the Wallingford Photographic Club
Practical evenings: Something for everyone
On Thursday 24 October the club held its second practical evening of the 2019/20 season. This involved running five sessions simultaneously, with the opportunity for members to sign up for the one that interested them most.
The activities were: a portraiture session with a model; an introduction to OnOne; advanced OnOne processing; night photography in Wallingford; and camera basics.
The portraiture session, for example, included recommended camera and lens settings, positioning of lighting and other technical aspects, and the chance to experience working with a professional model. Participants were encouraged to work with the model to come up with some original poses, with a focus on learning by experimenting.
Meanwhile, those just getting to grips with their cameras benefited from learning about composition, exposure, depth of field and histograms in the camera basics session, which encouraged everyone to "get off auto" and make the most of what their cameras could offer.
The evening was a clear representation of our theme for the season: "seeing, learning and enjoying". There was a buzz of enthusiasm throughout the pavilion and everyone came away feeling they had learnt something new. It was also a great opportunity for members to chat to each other, including those they may not have spoken to before, and share their knowledge and experience." E.D.
