Dury & Tippet and Smart Computers

Friday 8th September 2017, our evening could be called ‘An Evening of Two Halves’

The first half was presented by Stephen Dury, a local registered optometrist. Stephen went into great detail as to how our vision plays its part in a variety of different ways in the life of a photographer. He started his talk by indicating that we do not see with our eye, we see with our brain, and explained just how our brain allows us to see what we want to see but leaving out other details which we only see at a later date when we come to process the image. All very logical but also giving much food for thought.

The second half of the evening was presented by Dean Wood, Senior Manager of Smart Computers in Keynsham. A very interesting presentation covering all aspects of the computer world, the good and the bad. He explained what Smart Computers are able to offer us as photographers, whether it be technical information and advice but they are also able to offer a bespoke service designed for our individual needs.

Both talks were very different but enjoyable and informative.
