Club Meeting 18.04.13

Last night brought our current weekly session to an end with our AGM taking place and the presentation of trophies to the members who achieved the highest marks in the club competitions.

We had a number of new officers and committee members voted onto the committee, so I am looking forward to working with them and developing new ideas etc to make further improvements to the club.

Congratulation to all the trophy winners, details will soon be on the web site, together with a group ‘mug shot’.

The syllabus has been set up for next session, with the first meeting starting on Thursday 5th of September, details are on the web site. We hope that you will find it of interest and for it to be an aid to develop your interest and skills in this fascinating hobby of photography.

Meantime we will continue with our workshops, with the next Photoshop Workshop on Tuesday 21st May. Please make an effort to attend this as impute is required to see how this workshop can be developed further, Jim Todd has some training videos that we would like to ‘lend’ to you. So please do not miss out on this opportunity. If you cannot make this date, please let me have your ideas as to the way forward, members impute is vital.

So with festival coming up there will be plenty of material to work at. Please also start to think about the other club competitions, details on the web. With a camera and a little imagination start to fill the ‘cards’ and with the help of the workshops start to craft some satisfying images, but best of all – enjoy what you are doing.
