Tonight’s meeting was particularly enjoyable in being relaxed and informal. With three or four table-top set ups everyone had the opportunity to turn their cameras on something! I am sure everyone learned a lot about their cameras and how they worked with flash and how a lighting set up can have a marked effect on the look of the image. All manner of accessories were brought along and everyone was so busily engaged we lost track of time. Carl finished off the evening with an excellent run down on the OnOne software; a very skilled presentation fitted into the remaing meeting time perfectly.
Thanks to Carl and Peter (whose idea it was) and to others who brought in eqiupment for us to use. A great evening.
(The shot above was a trial of a ring LED lighting attachment by Kaiser, together with two small supplementary lights. It incidentally illustrates how poor the internet is at conveying image quality – the lack of depth of field hardly shows!)
