Newsletter NL131 – 17th Sept 2022

Editor - Derek Godridge and contributions the team:

PCC News –

  • Last night we had a “Know your buttons” session where members brought in their cameras and Instruction Manuals to help them in their quest! Several tables were laid out for the various manufacturer’s cameras, and members worked with one another to become more familiar with the controls.

  • These sessions are sometimes a difficult time for newcomers and current members alike, especially in terms of the amount of knowledge which can be acquired in the time available. Hence the club offers ongoing mentoring from the more experienced photographers in the club at any time. So if you would like more one-on-one support, please let us know and especially seek out those members whose names are listed. They can set aside time to discuss any queries you may have.

  • Club Mentors: Canon & Photoshop: Victor Tullin Nikon, Fuji & Electronic flash etc: Derek Godridge IT: Paul Cooper
