Below are the details of the meeting points and links to resources that you might find useful. There are no meetings scheduled on the bank holidays (3rd and 31st) but if you do fancy meeting up with club members pop a message on the WhatsApp chat.
At the end of the month is the hand in for the first of our Summer Challenges. The subject for the May challenge is Empty. You can submit upto 5 images. Please email them to Sue by 31st May (email@example.com) and she will pass them onto Mandy to select her favourites.
Loxhore - Bluebell Woods - 6:30pm
Our first club meet-up this month is in Loxhore for bluebell photography. Bluebells can be tricky to photograph for several reasons, e.g. the low/dappled light in the woods, the multi layered aspect of the flowers, etc. This article has some great tips for capturing beautiful bluebell shots, including recommended equipment, settings, and composition. It also includes some stunning inspirational images: https://www.alanranger.com/blogs/top-tips-for-photographing-bluebells
