Ellon Photographic Group welcomed two special guests to its meeting last week.

John Marks gave a talk on Landscape Photography followed by Andy Leonard who spoke about Wild Animal Photography.

John took members through the equipment required. He explained fStop, shutter speeds and ISOs, and showed a video on Aperture.

These videos are available on the Links tab of the Club website.

Andy went through the process of photographing mostly birds.

Members were told of places to go to and wind and sun conditions to improve images. They were also warned about the law regarding Schedule 1 birds.

Andy, like John, also went through camera settings – shutter speeds are faster for bird photography compared to Landscape Photography.

On Monday, March 25 the Portfolio Competition will be judged.
