Whitwick & District U3A - Digital Photography Group

Objective

To show members how to deal with all aspects of digital photography, from taking pictures, putting them onto a computer, sorting them into files and folders, backing them up, to improving them through various editing techniques. The group also looks at printing and scanning and an introduction to creating slideshows and DVDs.

Members may also be interested in the Creating DVDs group.

Please note that following Government advice re Covid 19, physical group meetings are currently suspended.

Venue

Thringstone Methodist Hall

Timing

Mornings at 10am.

Next Meeting

Although physical meetings are suspended during the pandemic members can still use their cameras for the homework tasks being set.

The theme for September and October's homework is "Skyline". The Concise Oxford Dictionary definition is "outline of hills, buildings, etc., defined against sky". The main feature of each picture should be the line between the sky and whatever else is in your picture. Use your imagination and let's have some good pictures.
