Paul Bingham - Birding Costa Rica
Central America’s Costa Rica is a dream destination for most birders. The size of Wales, it has more species of bird per square mile than any other country in the world. Sandwiched between the Caribbean and Pacific, with an altitude up to 12,500ft and several active volcanoes there are many and varied habitats for wildlife. As this was specifically a birding (rather than a general touring) trip then there will be a lot of wildlife pics, especially birds. You have been warned!

Bill Allsop - Light is Everything
Pdi talk which starts off looking at the work of Belgian pictorialist Leonard Missonne who said “Light glorifies everything. It transforms and ennobles the most commonplace and ordinary subjects. The object is nothing; light is everything.” We then go on to look at many kinds of light and hopefully see there is no such thing as ‘bad light’. This talk is designed to make relative beginners in photography think about the ways light can be used to enhance their photographs and introduce some mood be it restful or dramatic.
