On Sunday the club held its first outdoor workshop in Jesmond Dene with Neil Atkinson. This was a spin off from Neil's visit to the club in February. We met at Milford Lodge in the Dene and Neil explained the format of the day. Those attending Bill And Janet Leadbitter, Richard Curry, Jim Meikle, Pop and John Brannon, Myself and Ray Thomson.
We started off with at a small waterfall and Neil explained his formula for getting the correct shutter speed that "you" would enjoy looking at. The morning progressed with other locations and more about composition, backgrounds and lighting always given in Neil's jargon free manner. Along with all the instruction Neil regaled us with anecdotes of the Dene`s history and other shoots.
The session finished all too soon and we made our way back to our cars, we all thanked Neil for his time and patience. A grand day out.
