ERTF conference - photographing textiles

The ERTF held a very successful conference and AGM on Saturday 5 April 2014, at Hemingford Abbots Golf Complex, near Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.

The title of the conference was Photographing Your Textiles and Dr Chris Thomas, Director of Milton Contact Limited showed everyone how to improve their photography using cameras from Smartphones to SLRs, and some basic editing skills.

A full report of the day will be available to members in our newsletter (available online by 1st May), but Chris has very kindly given us a link to his own blog, which includes some of the images taken on the day.
