Hi BPS members
Martin started proceedings by presenting Grace with her Life Membership Certificate, well-done Grace you are an inspiration to all of us.
It was great to see such a good turnout on Tuesday even though several of our regular members did not make it. They certainly missed a brilliant evening of inspiring landscape photography presented by Stephen Spraggon. Stephen’s presentation contained mostly Somerset scenes representing photography during the four seasons of the year. How do you fancy a landscape photography day out when the leaves start dropping? I’ll keep an eye open and create an event on our FB group. The Quantocks and Exmoor are my favourite places unless you can advise me of alternatives not a too far away.
It was good to see a few Phoenix club members at our meeting, we appreciate their support. I have created an event on our Facebook Group following an invitation for us to visit them on the 24th September when they have a presentation covering photojournalism by Graham Trott. Details once again can be found on our FB group.
Practical Evening Bring your cameras and equipment, Learn about your cameras and photographers questions, small groups will be formed for a hands on evening. Our experienced members help you with any problems you may be finding that prevent you taking that perfect shot. This will be followed by a review of our WCPF Kingswood Salver entry.
As I will be on holiday for the next 2 weeks we will need help in the kitchen please to set up, serve and clear up after our refreshment break.
Message from our Competition Secretary Ken Hocking: Ken tells me that we have a decent entry for our first monthly competition: 42 Digital images and 37 prints.
Tomorrow evening, 14th September: Firework Display at Bridgwater & Albion Rugby Club
Saturday, September 15th: Bridgwater Ploughing Competition.
