Hi everyone

1. Feedback  - Beginners Gathering & Saturday Session


We have had some awesome gatherings with the newbies, both at the Beginners Gathering and the Saturday Session.

We got to meet our new members, and do some shooting together. We explored Jodi's farm and all her animals.
The Saturday Session was well attended, with some valuable lessons being learnt about preparing photos for Photo Sharing. Please see below for a link to the NOTES from Saturday. 

We welcome all our new members, and hope that you enjoy your first official Photo Sharing on Tuesday evening!
