Alba's new 2017 has now got underway and wish to welcome all new members to our club.

Wednesday 6th September was a very informal night with potential new members getting the chance to speak with current members. A number of prints were on display as well as a slideshow showing more images from current Alba members. Club President Bernadette McDonald welcomed everyone back for another new season and explained what would be happening over the course of the season.

Wednesday 13th September saw Alan Pollock introduce a presentation on the 'Fundamentals Of Photography' which covered everything from how to hold your camera properly, using tripods, attaching flash guns and composition to introducing the 'exposure triangle' and studio lighting. A lot to take in by any newcomers starting out but very informative indeed. For Alba members the presentation can be downloaded from our club's new Facebook page. An interesting evening, well attended and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.

On Wednesday 20th September we will be looking at cutting mounts for prints and how to improve and resize your images; very helpful if you want to enter club competitions!
