The return of the ever popular Leigh Preston FRPS for a weekend. The Saturday will be a field trip based around the Hound Tor area of Dartmoor, This will include photography around the Hound Tor rocks and Bowermans Nose, with a possible look at the bluebells on Holwill Down if they are not past their best. Meet at Hound Tor car park ready for a 10.30am start. There is usually a refreshment van in the car park, but it is suggested all attendees bring lunch and drinks. It is also advised to wear stout footwear(walking boots preferably) and some wet weather gear in addition to your cameras, tripods etc. Leigh will be helping attendees to compose their shots and assist in any way to make the day instructive and enjoyable.

THE DAY WILL INVOLVE SOME WALKING, SOME OF WHICH MAY BE STRENUOUS. 

Sunday will be based at The Dolphin Hotel, Bovey Tracey and will, in Leigh's words, involve "Real photography and building a panel". This will involve Leigh's own brand of instruction, mixed with a little humour and most of all advice on any aspects of questions which are asked of him.

BOOKING WILL BE ESSENTIAL FOR BOTH DAYS, PLEASE ENSURE YOU BOOK ONLINE OR BY SENDING CHEQUES PAYABLE TO THE RPS TO THE TREASURER.
