Good afternoon, soccers!
Unlucky number 13!
Don’t forget that talks are free for photosoc members and £1 for non-members. If you’d like to join, simply come along to any of our meetings to get membership! It’s for UoE/ECA students and for everyone else.
1. Travel Photography – Friday 1st February
Our Travel Master Mark Scherz will be giving a talk about his experience as a travel photographer this Friday in the Ochil Room at Pleasance from 8pm! Each year, Mark spends a couple of months in Madagascar and comes back with stunning photos of local landscapes, wildlife and locals. Mark will be going over some of the “do”s and “don’t”s of travel photography as well as discussing some of his biggest influences in the field. If you’re looking to go abroad this year and get those stunning local shots, this is n
ot one to be missed!
2. Swing Dance photography – Saturday 9th February
As a quick heads-up, Photosoc Committee are in talks with the Swing Dance Society, looking to arrangefor some Photosoc members to get some hands-on experience in photographing real events! Keep watching this space for more details in next week’s newsletter!
Darkrooms are up and running in full, so those of you who have had tutorials, feel free to develop to your heart’s content! Please remember if you are using the enlargers (Pleasance or Kings) to switch them off at the plug after use. We had an issue with over heating recently that caused the Bulb to blow, so remembering to switch them off means everyone can use them without a hitch. If you are still looking to have a tutorial send us a new email with the subject “Darkroom Pleasance” or “Darkroom KB” and one of our tutors will get back to you and arrange a session to get your access card!
The society has a large range of equipment available to rent for free by our members, including a range of film/digital SLR cameras, lighting equipment and lenses.
Send an e-mail with ‘Rentals’ in the subject and we’ll get back to you!
5. The PhotoShop
Our lovely photosoc shop has now been restocked, so we now have a nice fresh stock of film and paper for sale at great prices! Simply come along to one of our meetings, let us know what you’re after and either myself or our Treasurer Alex will sort you out!
6. Picture of the Week
This week, a shot by Photosoc’s very own Chris Rubey. The atmosphere and lighting on this shot is just great. Excellent stuff, Chris!
That’s all for this week, hope to see you all on Friday!
(and Mark, Secretary)
