Upcoming events


18/12/2017      Smartphone Photography


Prints of images shot on Malcolm's iPhone and demonstrations of the various apps he uses.

Unfortunately, Professor Trevor Kerry has been taken ill and will not be able to deliver the planned lecture "Viewpoints & Points of View":

This lecture was to be a look at the ways in which the viewpoint we select for an image affects the 'message' the image puts across, to ourselves and others; and that within images there are hidden points of view.

A number of members had been looking forward to this lecture; we hope to be able to reschedule it for a future date once Professor Kerry is back on his feet.
