Next Meeting – 28th September – Rose Bowl Selection & 6×4 Competition

In the first session we will be making an initial selection of PDI images for the coming Rose Bowl competition. For this we need your best images seen in the Club before, or not, taken over the last couple years. If every member sends in 5 images, we will have over 150 to choose from. I suspect some may send in fewer, but if I ask you to send in up to 10 images I’m sure we will have an excellent range for our selection. On the evening we will view all the images and then ask everyone present to vote for the best. We will then take about the top 30 images for the Committee to make the final selection for the Rose Bowl competitions. We used this strategy last year and it worked well.
If you can, please email your images to Chris  at cjgib62 AT as soon as possible. If we can get most images on the PC before the evening that will aid arrangements. If necessary, and you need to bring in your images on the night on a USB stick, that will be OK.
In the second session we will be judging the 6×4 competition. Those who spent that evening in Jericho in June should bring in a panel, or more, of 5 prints (6” x 4”, or A5) mounted on a sheet of card. These panels will then be judged by the members present on the evening.
See you there!

Beginners’ Session – 21st September

On 21st September, we will be holding one of our special sessions for beginners or anyone who would like to better understand how to take great photos. Bring along your camera and join us in the Perry Room at the Methodist Church Hall.

Meetings start at 8pm and finish at around 10.00pm. We have a nominal meeting fee of £2 (to include room hire and tea/coffee). Looking forward to seeing you there!

Do share with your friends or anyone who might be interested!

Next Meeting – September 14th – PDI Competition

Members can enter up to two images on any subject, they can be colour and/or mono.
If possible, please resize them to 1400 x 1050 pixels and email them to Chris Gibbins at cjgib62 AT

If you want to be in the Improvers’ League, please let Chris know.

The deadline for entries is midnight on Tuesday.

Please remember that only paid up members can enter Club competitions – you can pay by cash or cheque on the night.


Next Meeting – 31st August

New season starting Thursday 31st August – welcome back!

Our meeting will be in the usual two session format, the first of which will be open to all to show a selection of images taken over the last few months. Just bring them along on a USB stick and be prepared to say a few words about each one.

After the break, we hope that all members who won a cup or shield as a result of our competitions last year will talk about their winning images. So if winners could be prepared to offer some details about their work, for example why they chose the particular subject matter, and how they used software to improve what came out of the camera, with perhaps before and after images, I’m sure that would be valuable and of great interest.

Reminder – subscriptions are now due! Rates are the same as last year, i.e. either £60 with nothing else to pay or £40 plus £2 per meeting.

Looking forward to seeing you all there.
