Club Meeting 15 October 2015 (Photo Advice Night)

Thank you everyone who brought their prints in tonight. I hope you found the advice helpful and inspiring. The most useful advice I heard was to keep trying. If you didn’t come along this evening and would like advice on a print, bring it along some other evening and we can discuss it during the tea break.


We have two 4-way inter-club competitions coming up on December 10th and January 19th, and a 12-way competition on February 14th. If you have any other good digital images, or images you are saving for the set subject competitions later in the year, do please send them to George. The bigger the selection we can build up early in the year, the better our chance in the inter-clubs.


Our first speaker, Jason Cowan, has offered a prize for the highest scorers from each of the 3 set subject competitions: coast, dereliction and abstract. The winner of each night will receive an A0-sized poster print of their favourite image (or two A1-sized prints if you prefer).


I forgot to mention that we need some volunteers to make tea on 29th October 2015.


Someone left behind a small, black Westfolio folder after the digital images competition. There were also some prints left behind after the advice night. If these belong to you, I have stored them safely and you can pick them up next time you come along.
