11th December – Studio Session
On 11th December we plan to set up 3 or 4 studio areas in the WI Hall, and hope to have 4 models (three females and one male). Bring your camera, suitable lenses, and other accessories such as a tripod. There is no need to bring your own lighting or flash units as we will have a mix of modelling (continuous) lighting and flash units using remote triggers. The evening will start with  a brief introduction, including the rules for the evening; for example: No shoes on backdrops; Work in pairs but only one shooter at a time; Direction of travel, etc.

We meet at the WI Hall on Warwick Road, Solihull. Visitors are always made welcome. £3 at the door please.

18th December – Christmas “It’s a Knock Out”
Our final meeting of 2018 will be on the 18th December. We will hold our traditional “It’s a Knock Out” informal competition of prints and projected images with the winners being chosen by members on the evening. Members may submit up to 3 prints and 3 projected images. The second part of the evening will be a social event where members bring food and drinks, which are shared.
