Welcome to the new photography group lead by Ann Sheridan.

Taking pictures has never been easier, but few people realise how powerful free or very cheap photo-editing applications are. The group will explore a traditional approach to photography looking at compositional techniques, we’ll also examine technical stuff like the roles of aperture, ISO and shutter speed.
 
Once you’ve taken your pictures, whether you’ve taken them on a smartphone or a digital SLR or mirrorless camera we’ll look at how to use image editing programmes on tablets or PCs to show how you can make the most of your pictures. 
 
We’ll begin by looking at the free google application Snapseed to show how we can make the most of our pictures. You can download Snapseed from the Apple or Android App Store and show how we can change our photos from this:

You’ll need a tablet, either android or iPad and some photos you’ve taken and want to improve. 
 
I’ll look forward to seeing you in January.
