        Thursday 10th September 2020---SHEPTON MALLET PRISON

        I am organising an outing to Shepton Mallet Prison which will be the first we have had for some time .The prison is open for a limited time before being converted into housing and is a fascinating place to get some different photos as you might have seen with Dave Bathard's visit to HPS. I have been twice myself and I believe it is safe in terms of social distancing as it is a big site. Most of it is inside but you can keep well away from others.
        I suggest meeting at the ticket office at 11.00am although a good place for coffee before is Harlequins Cafe at Kilver Court where you can park your car and you might want to meet there earlier at 10.00am and walk through to the prison. Afterwards there are some lunch options in the town even though it is short of good pubs. Collett Park in the town is an afternoon option for photography. Thank you Peter.

        Jane Lazenby BA Hons ASEA SAAPA QTFE2 UKCPS LRPS BPE3* CPAGB AFIAP LMPA EFIAP- Working With Textures

        Answering all the what and how questions, I go through sourcing and creating textures , how to use blend modes and then 3 different methods of how to apply textures to an image.

        After a short mid way break, I invite the club to submit random images for a live edit where I will take between 3-5 images and apply textures from my own stock to create final pieces., narrating every click on route. I believe that seeing the process happen 'for real' is very valuable for viewers.

        A talk that always goes down well as a hands-on 'how-to', I travel slowly and clearly through the technical aspects, happily repeating steps if requested.
