This Tuesday our very own Steve McGrane (LIPF) will give a talk on his photography. Steve specialises in Landscapes & Seascapes and is usually up at the crack of dawn trying to get that super sunrise that will make a cracking photo. Steve will talk about technique & equipment and where one might go to try and get a good landscape/seascape.
Steve also uses filters such as neutral density and graduated filters and will explain how to use them to help get a better image. It will be a great talk and if anyone is interested in trying this type of photography be sure not to miss it!!
