6) SEB Photography 201 – Last year in Frostburg, we talked about different types of gear as well as about taking “people pictures.” This year, it’s all about the people and places we’ll visit in and around Plymouth. In particular, we like to focus on the event later in the day at the EDEN PROJECT
Join us for breakfast, a short discussion re the day’s event at Eden, and ideas for taking great “people pictures.” Once we have a list of those interested in taking part, we’ll begin emailing you a few resources we’d recommend you view before coming to the meeting, and England. We hope to see you there. To register, please send an email to email@example.com.
