MONTHLY MEETING 2nd Oct Shona Kebble

 


GUEST SPEAKER


 


INSIGHT INTO EXCELLENCE - Shona Kebble


 


Our next speaker will give us an insight into how her love of photography has developed to a point where she is now a National Photography Judge. It's a story that could be any one that aims to take a better photograph.


 


However it is doubly pleasing that our speaker agreed to speak as it gives us an opportunity to recognise one of our most outstanding members. Not only as an esteemed photographer but also for her help to so many photographers.


It is a privilege and delight to have Shona Kebble as our next speaker.


Shona will speak to us on how she has produced so many winning images and the techniques that she has acquired along the way. The art of discerning what makes a great image.  The art of identifying how to improve an image.


It will be interesting to hear from someone who expects so little recognition and has so much to offer.


 


 


Please try to bring a guest.
