Camera club make Old Harbour night visit
4:00pm Tuesday 30th October 2012 in News
MEMBERS of Positive Image Camera Club on the course 'learning Photoshop' had a break from classwork last Thursday when Guy lead a group of them out into the night to do some night photography, focusing on the old harbour on Barry Island.
Even with such good results coming from point and shoot digital cameras, Guy thought it was important to understand that if you want better control of your images learning to use the manual controls on your camera is very important.
Night shooting really does require a tripod to prevent camera shake, next, getting to grips with the shutter speed in conjunction with the aperture (this controls the amount of light that falls on the sensor). A cable release, or a timed shutter release will also help to obtain a sharp image.
Having got to grips with Guy's explanation on how to use shutter speed and aperture in relation to each other members of PIPS, went about the task of composing, and capturing night images, with this new way of shooting digitally, but it's back to the laptops and Photoshop next week, Thursday, October 25, when members continue with the next stage in manipulating to improve photographs.
PIPS meet at St Barucs Church Hall, Phyllis Street, Barry Island (behind the school) at 7.15pm on Thursdays during the winter season. All are welcome.
