For our New Year's meeting five photographers turned out.
We discussed a number of technical subjects, including the use and abuse of telephoto lenses and the difference in application between these and zoom functions, and working very close to the subject. Generally, there is no photographic difference with the subject, but the image when photographed close to contains more pixels and therefore resolution, and will accommodate more enlargement. When using zoom and telephoto, it is important to take care with the background, as it will be out of focus with respect to the subject.
We briefly discussed planning visits, and the gardens at Melbourne were mentioned as a good summer visit, and the Statfold Barns Railway near Tamworth.
Suggestions for visits are always welcome!
Our next meeting will be on 1st February.
If the forecast is good, turn up 15 mins early for a site visit to Dimminsdale.
