14-Oct-20 Talk A to Z of Imaging by Dave Russell AFIAP of Cardiff Camera Club
Dave has been a judge and lecturer in the Welsh Federation for over 30 years. His talk came about when he was asked to present an as yet untitled talk to a local camera club and their programme secretary put it down as “Dave Russell’s A to Z of Imaging”, so he put it together with that in mind. There is at least 1 topic for each letter of the alphabet, from Achilles to Zoom. It covers people pictures, landscapes, natural history and more, with a variety of straight shots and more creative images.
