    Post date: Sat, 27/11/2010 - 15:27

    Why not try out snow, rain or rainbows; or whatever the weather you fancy in fact! At a recent meeting of our Digital Group, there was a demonstration on how to make climate changes in our photos, via software such as Photoshop. The alternative image-effects were truly amazing. Many tips and tricks like these are explored by the group, and also methods of maximising image-presentation in general...

    Post date: Thu, 18/11/2010 - 14:56

      Hi All   Last night saw the Staffs Photo Clubs Annual Digital Projected Image Competition at Rugeley. Nine clubs took part this year, with Blythe Bridge joining the battle.

We are desperate for the room, and I am sad to say he must pack his bags. If you could offer our mannequin a home, he comes with no cost. He is rather heavy, but does split in the middle for ease of travel. He also has a little...

    Post date: Fri, 29/10/2010 - 17:53

    It is enthralling when the camera can capture something which the human eye is not quick enough or near enough to observe .  A skilled macro photographer can bring the detail of small objects sharply into focus, thereby introducing us to beauty  we may otherwise have missed.    This was really evident in Leek Photographic Club’s recent Macro photography competition.  Paul Matthews’ winning shot ...
