Dating Old Photographs (Windsor BAM)
Many of us have inherited gorgeous family photographs, but do we always know exactly who is in them or when the pictures were taken?
Imagine being able to flesh out your family history by adding contextual photographs from the precise time period you are researching.
We are delighted to welcome professional photographer and photography teacher, Stephen Gill, to teach us how you can tell a story about an old photograph and help date it.
Steve will be presenting some guidance about how to get the most out of your old family photographs as well as how to date them. At the end of the talk we hope you will look at your photos in a different way and be able to enjoy them more.
Just before the talk we will hold the Branch Annual Meeting of the Windsor, Slough and Maidenhead branch, and we promise to keep it short and to the point.
This talk is free to members of Berkshire Family History Society and we request a donation of £3 from non-members. Pre-booking is required, because the meeting link will emailed in advance. Booking ends one day before event.
To join in this branch meeting, you will need a computer device which has a microphone and speakers. Ideally, also a webcam. You also need to be able to access emails from this device. First time users will be asked to download a small piece of software to join the meeting. The meeting link will be emailed to you in advance. Technical help is available for those who need further assistance, please contact .
