Hi Members

October 15th Meeting report

What an excellent evening’s entertainment Jane Kearney presented us with. She told us of her journey in photography ‘Wildlife to Creativity’. It soon became obvious that Jane had put a massive amount of passion and effort into her work in order to reach the level of expertise she has achieved. In her talk, she lead us through her life from her owning her first basic camera as a child until becoming a very respected judge and lecturer. She gave us an insight to her extensive travels and details of the many hours put into her work covering just about every subject imaginable.

Next week’s Meeting Information

The Monthly Competition will be judged by Peter Fry who kindly agreed to help us out when we were let down by the original judge at short notice: Prints – Open and DI – The Coast. Peter is an experienced judge and a committee member of the WCPF.

Future Club Events

Our plan to provide basic camera settings, techniques or photo editing sadly did not move forward at the last meeting, mainly due to our newer members not being at the meeting. As said we plan to run on a Friday evening or Saturday morning. Peter has informed me that the first meeting will cover exposure. Please let me know if you prefer Friday evening or Saturday morning.

The St Mary’s Church Bells project continues this Saturday coming. Please see our FB page events for further information.

Our annual Christmas meal has been booked for December 10th at the Harvest Moon North Newton, please let me know if you are coming via the event I will be posting on our Facebook group.

All future club meeting information will be added to our closed Facebook Group with personal invites to events being sent to you. Please check regularly on this Facebook Page for event activity.

Best wishes
