10th:  Assessment – ABSTRACT - Look for the abstract in any scene, close-ups, colour, patterns, people, so long as it is interesting visually.

24TH:  Workshop – Bokeh workshop using tethered cameras - Bokeh refers to the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out of focus parts of an image produced by a lens. We will set up a couple of workstations using tethered cameras so that you can try adjusting settings for different effects and get an instant view of the image on the attached laptop. No need to bring your camera as you can try one provided by Bruce, Dan and  others. Just bring along a pair of clean hands please!
