This week we are going to be using our creative flair to shoot and post-produce an image (in teams) in the style of a product shot.

The evening will be an opportunity for you to get to know your camera, experiment with composition and lighting, and to have a go at post processing in a relaxed and fun way. 

The theme for this season is ‘Improving’, so please use the evening as an opportunity to try things out, and ask lots of questions.

See you there!
