Hillcrest Camera Club - Photo Sharing - 18th July 2017

Posted by Hillcrest Camera Club on Monday, August 21, 2017 Under: Photo Sharing

Hi everyone

Please submit your photos for Photo Sharing tomorrow. We look forward to seeing everyone's complimentary colour photos! 

1. Photos taken at the Crestholme Pony Club and Panning Workshop

The Panning Workshop held on Sunday 9th July was well attended, with over 20 club members trying their hands at the panning shooting technique. We had some awesome 'models' with four riders and horses, as well as two ponies and a cart, providing us with moving targets for our shooting! 

Feedback from everyone was that panning is extremely challenging, but a technique worth learning and practising, as the results were very rewarding! Thank you to all who participated! 

At the beginning of the workshop, we got to take portrait photos of the riders and horses, who were looking magnificently turned out! Please email your good portrait images to hillcrestcameraclub@gmail.com. We will forward them to Cathy and Michelle.
