Roundup of club activities during September 2019

19 September - The new club season began with an informal evening and it was good to welcome back two previous members and to greet some newcomers as well. The Chairman gave a résumé of the 2019/20 programme highlights and announced the new club challenge: Street Photography (see club announcements in the Latest News column on this page). Phil Copestick gave an interesting demonstration of Affinity Photo software, an alternative programme to Photoshop and much cheaper. Finally, there was plenty of discussion on a selection of photos taken by many members during the summer break.

26 September - Members brought along three images of the subject they most enjoy photographing. It was delightful to see so many images and what a wide range they covered! With all the advice given, we hope you agree it was a really worthwhile evening.

Call for PRINTS for the SPA Interclub comp on Saturday 23 November. Please bring along to the meeting next week or by Thursday 24 October(at the latest) 4 or 5 of your best prints from last year, colour or mono, as we have to use work from at least 10 members and use a minimum of four mono in our selection. This is not restricted to just those which have scored ten as not many of us are lucky to have that many!

During the SPA competition only the three judges see the prints but the PDIs are simultaneously projected for the benefit of the audience.
