At this week’s meeting, Phil will demonstrate some of the equipment which was purchased with our grant from the Post Code Lottery. Members may have the opportunity to try out some of this, so you are invited to bring along cameras and laptops. The equipment includes studio flash, backgrounds and a screen calibration spyder.
