Summer Outing 1 FULL DETAILS

Fri 15 Jun 2018 10:00am

Samphire Hoe Education Centre

We are planning an all day workshop based in the Education Centre at Samphire Hoe, Dover, on Friday 15th June.

Get to Know Your Camera better, a good opportunity to play with different apertures, speeds and various lenses, and filters. Bring your laptops to view your images and get advice. An opportunity to help each other and share skills but overseen by Tom, Andy and Steve. 

Portable Lights will be available to use for environmental portraits.

A charge of £10, to include parking, is payable towards hiring the venue, bring a Packup Lunch but coffee tea and snacks available on site.

Payment details will be emailed to those who showed interest.

Please bring the following:

  • SENSIBLE CLOTHING for every eventuality ( You can’t then blame us if you are cold)
  • FORMATED AND EMPTY SD CARD (not full up with a 1000 images on it)
  • LAPTOP ( if you want, but there will be machines available)

This sounds like a great idea!

Love that idea! Great venue and setting for taking photos :-)

In diary, looking forward to it!

i've always wanted to go here but when its on your doorstep you never quite make it - Its on my calendar!!

In my diary looking forward to it.

Sounds interesting, I'll be there.

Please remember to have a think about what you want to get out of Friday, we will be able to spend time that we don't usually have, so a bit of time spent working out what you need will help us to help you. We will also try and share processing tips and general ideas that may help  you both learn and enjoy the day more.

A heads up for all attending tomorrow. According to the Samphire website there is another event taking place from 1000-1300. A half day Conservation outing. Please be aware of these other people and remember the security of your equipment and ensure you do not impede them as they work on the Hoe. (Not saying they are an untrustworthy bunch......obviously members of the public will be wandering around too0.

Thanks for the update, will the classroom be secure, I.e. FCC only?

Yes that is how I understand things. (I have produced a sign to that effect for display)
