Learn­ers look se­ri­ously at photo im­age qual­ity at skills ses­sion


SHARP shooter par­tic­i­pants in the ‘Mans­field Cal­en­dar’ oper­a­tion turned up again at the De­latite Ho­tel over the last two weeks to re­fine their pho­to­graphic skills.

The first ses­sion on pho­to­graphic im­age qual­ity – pre­sented by lo­cal pho­tog­ra­phers Bob Ba­teup and Bil­lie Leatham – may have led some to look at their cam­eras se­ri­ously for the first time.

Sup­ported by pho­to­graphs, Mr Ba­teup went over key is­sues such as get­ting the best im­age by avoid­ing jpegs and us­ing RAW im­ages where pos­si­ble, use of aper­ture, shut­ter speed and sen­sor sen­si­tiv­ity.

There will be four ses­sions on im­age qual­ity, each with about 15 mem­bers.

These ‘how the cam­era works’ ses­sions will be fol­lowed by an­other on ‘how to take the best pho­to­graph’ – which may in fact turn out to be a joint ef­fort, with all par­tic­i­pants present.

Ac­cord­ing to Mr Ba­teup, this ses­sion should cover is­sues com­mon to ev­ery­one – com­po­si­tion, light, color and feel­ing for the sub­ject.

He re­it­er­ated the idea of each shut­ter bug pre­sent­ing his best im­age to him by early April for print­ing, mount­ing and pre­sen­ta­tion at the De­latite Ho­tel on May 4.

If you thought noth­ing was be­ing done in Mans­field lately, just look around – you may be on candid cam­era.
