We always keen to try new things in camera club, so for this event we'll be running a Question and Answer session based on the popular Radio 4 Panel show, followed by a photography Quiz.
For those unfamiliar with Gardener's Question time we'll be providing a panel of experts to answer your photographic questions. Members will be encouraged to ask the panel for guidance, advise and for help in soothing their photographic woes. The panel member's will be some of the more senior and experienced club members who will have a range of different skills and areas of expertise. To ensure the evening runs smoothly we'll be having a host to receive the questions and pass them on to the relevant expert.
Having answered your questions in the first part of the evening, in the second part of the evening we'll be turning the tables and asking you the questions.
