Casinos in Birmingham!

Posted in Birmingham mac on March 20th, 2014 by Phil and Rachel – Comments Off

If you are in the Midlands on a photography trip and fancy a taste of the Brummie nightlife, you are in for a real treat. Like most other cities in the UK, Birmingham has plenty of casinos to tempt those who have had their appetites whetted by playing roulette, slot machines or blackjack at one of the online casino sites. However some of the city’s casinos stand out head and shoulders above the others in terms of quality, with the Grosvenor G being one of them. This offers all the most popular table games seen on sites like http://www.jackpotcity.co.uk/online-roulette, like poker, blackjack, roulette and poker, alongside cutting edge slots like Lucky Lady’s Charm and Cleopatra, but also much more beside the gaming.

Found in the Fiveways Leisure Complex, this is a place where you can happily spend a night out with your partner, or some friends, even if they aren’t as keen on casino as you are. The entertainment lounge provides live music and other alternative forms of fun, while the bar and restaurant will ensure everyone in your party is fed and watered to the highest standards. It’s hard to find fault with the Grosvenor G, but it’s easier to find other casinos in Birmingham that can match its standards – for example the Broadway. Located at 1-4 Broadway Plaza, this offers a splendid choice of games – including both American and Touchbet Roulette, three-card stud poker and punto banco.

Most of these are also available at the best online casino sites though, and like the Grosvenor G, it is the other entertainment that helps distinguish the Broadway. Here there are two bars, multi screen televisions with Sky Sports, and live music – making it the perfect place for a celebration as well as a gaming night. Last but not least there is Genting Casino, near Hagley Road, which is open every day and offers the chance to sample Electronic Roulette, alongside the usual casino favourites. The last Friday of the month is live music night at Genting which, coupled with the newly refurbished late bar, makes it another fine place to spend a night out with a party of friends – or even arrange a themed party night.

Shallow but meaningful in Birmingham

Shallow depth of field is really noticeable in macro and close up shots.  This can sometimes mean that you only get one end of a butterfly in focus!  These pictures get away with it, taken on a photography course at mac in Birmingham, and all taken with regular kit lenses, which shows what you can do if you know what your are doing!

Anne has done all our courses, and Anjam has done DSLR in Manchester.  They decided to say “what would your dream job be?” and photograph each other for their future websites!  Anjam, photographer, and Anne, racing driver!

They had to establish rapport very quickly, but were both absolutely delighted with the results and both have usable photos:

Photography Course in Birmingham in the cold

Our photography course in Birmingham took place despite the snow, while Rachel took up her new post in Bewdley. It was extremely cold, and Phil took a couple of pictures to prove it!!

Statues have a hard time too!

Just goes to show that rain wind or snow won’t stop us from delivering a photography course!
