Roger Hance, FRPS - Digital Macro Photography

Wednesday 31st May 2017

Roger visited the Club and gave a presentation showing the various skills and techniques that he uses in the field of Macro Photography.  He explained the equipment he uses and showed some of the unusual things he carries in his camera bag that helps him to get sharp images (including knitting needles!).  The talk covered a wide range of nature subjects including butterflies, moths, dragonflies and damselflies, wild flowers, fungi, frost patterns, cobwebs and much more.

The evening was enjoyed by all who attended,and everyone walked away with some new techniques they want to try.  Thanks Roger for a very entertaining and informative presentation.
