The Greensand Country Landscape Partnership is presenting a number of photography workshops on Zoom. They are free but spaces may be limited. The workshops start this Saturday (20th March) and continue on an almost daily basis until the end of the month. Aimed principally at outdoor/landscape photography, the workshops cover a wide range of subjects including the use of filters, outdoor photography for beginners, post production techniques and how to get the best from smartphone cameras.
Bedford Camera Club is affiliated with the East Anglian Federation of Photographic Societies and their latest bulletin is now available online through the link below. It’s an interesting read and gives an insight into the activities of other clubs in our region,

As a follow-up to our recent nature competition, where we had so many excellent and inspiring entries, you might find this interesting…
Campkins (a Cambridge Photographic shop) with The Wildlife Trusts of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire are running a “free to enter” nature photographic competition titled “Celebrate the Seasons” with 3 prizes totalling £500 of merchandise.
Magnum Photos was established after WWII, in 1947, by Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson and two others, to reflect their independent natures as both people and photographers – the idiosyncratic mix of reporter and artist that continues to define Magnum to this day.
Magnum allows fine photographers the ability to work outside the formulas of magazine journalism, often covering wars, conflicts, famine etc.
During our last committee meeting we briefly discussed the legal issues of going out of the house to take photographs during the current lockdown. The Royal Photographic Society has sent us a link to their document which provides some excellent advice.
The next Camera to Photoshop Workflow Zoom presentation is scheduled for this Friday, Feb 12th, at 3:30pm
Martin (an excellent photographer) has kindly offered us some of his images to process. Bruce will be demonstrating how he would post-process Martin’s image(s) using Lightroom and Photoshop
