    For anyone wishing to have specific input on images, then bring along your own laptop with the image on and the software you use so that we can try to help.

    Richard Herrod Centre, Foxhill Rd, Carlton, Nottingham NG4 1RL, UK

    We spend a lot of time looking at images and critiquing them or allowing a judge to tell us where we have made mistakes, yet with a little help, some reassurance, and extra effort, most of us know when our images are not 100%, or as close as we can get them.

    Looking for comment faults, that judges pick up on before we go to the printing stage or images submission nights etc, can reduce costs and gain us more points.

    Tonight, images will be displayed as we have done in the past and we will be asking all members to comment on what is glaringly wrong / right with the images, which the hope that you will see them before you make these common mistakes in your own images.

    October 11, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    The Richard Herrod Centre, Foxhill Rd, Carlton, Nottingham NG4 1RL, UK

    This is a first for the club.

    We will be watching a DVD of the British Photo Journalist, Sir Don McCULLIN.

    He is will known for his war images, and some are quite harrowing, but as photographers, whilst we may not always find the images palatable, we should be asking the questions, do they get the point across, do they have the right impact and do they tell the story accurately.

    These questions can impact on our own photographic skills and abilities.

    In a recent article, McCullin states that he is not a fan of the modern digital era, but accepts that in the need for speed and desire, images have to be transferred as fast as possible. It's how he embraces this we should be looking at.
