Weekly Newsletter 8th February

This Week

We had a very good night on Tuesday where members new and old all enjoyed exploring or enhancing their portraiture skills. The two models Lauren and Ellie did well and now await a selection of images taken by photographers, please show your appreciation and each supply a selection of images taken via Brian. Also, thanks to all who brought equipment and assisted the newer members making this a successful enjoyable evening for all.

Next Week

On Tuesday 13th February we host our annual competition against Taunton Camera Club, this is always a serious challenge for us and I’m led to believe we will be against some very high-quality images. Win or lose the evening will be full of great photography not to be missed. We are expecting members from Taunton to visit, so it would be good to ensure we all arrive in plenty of time to welcome them.


Also, this is entry night for our next monthly competition with upto 3 off each [Prints - Emotive Portrait] [DI - Break the Rules] . You should note that unless you include the 1400 x1050 digital copies of the Prints, your entry will not be accepted. Apart from digital copies being one of our Competition Rules, the Judge will be assessing the Print entry from those DIs and then having a final appraisal on the night. It therefore follows that we have no leeway to make any exceptions to the Rule.

Future Events

Tuesday 20th February is an external lecture by Keith Spicer on Lightroom/Photoshop.

Tuesday 27th February is our Monthly Competition [Prints - Emotive Portrait] [DI - Break the Rules] [Judge - Ralph Snook]
