Jackie Nutkins – “Give me your best shot”

During the first part of the evening Jackie will update everyone on a couple of gardens that she has been doing. Interesting for their design and construction.
Then the rest of the evening will be about looking at some images and showing how different cropping and different camera settings can change the look of a picture.
There will be advice and tips that can be applied not only to flower pictures but to help your landscape and portrait images.

If members want to, they can bring an image on a memory stick for Jackie to have a look at and tweak or give advice

Doors open 7:40 meeting starts 8:00
