Weekly Newsletter 14th September

Hi BPS Members

It was good to see our new members attend our meeting again this week - hang in there and we will do our best to help you to improve your photography skills. I was very impressed with the quality achieved by those members who submitted their images taken on their mobile phones. A couple of prints were excellent. I am looking forward to seeing how they compare to those taken with expensive cameras and lenses in the monthly competition. I have a feeling from what I saw that some of us will be quite shocked.

Next week’s Meeting:

WCPF 2018 competitions. Discussion will be around whether we should enter any of the following competitions: Kingswood Salver, WCPF DPIC, AV, or the Knightshayes Trophy. The WCPF is the area society for the south west of England and we as a club are registered, you as paid up members of Bridgwater Photographic Society, are also members. After the break we a have new competition for all smartphone users (not just the newcomers) to have their images [up to four] critiqued by an in house team, send your images no later than Monday to Martin Barber smartphonepics@bwps.org.uk so that we can collate the entries.

Membership subscriptions:

See Graham for details. It is acceptable to complete the form electronically if you wish.

Future photo opportunities:

No arrangements have been made yet, however, see details below (see you there!) as I have had to delay our planned holiday due to my wife not being too well.

September 16th Bridgwater Ploughing competition is at Huntworth from 10am until 4pm. Directions from M5 junction 24, take the road to Moorland village, Huntworth Lane and the fields will be on your left after approximately 500 meters. They have a FB page https://www.facebook.com/events/486482191728737/permalink/486681605042129/

Can you all please keep an eye open and let me know or post on FB any events you see advertised that could make a good trip out for club members.

If you need help in anyway please feel free to contact me and I will try to help s5555@btinternet.com

Best Wishes

Brian
