This week’s meeting
This Friday Andrew Washington, with technical support from Andrew de Mora, will be running a Lightroom Workshop at 7.30.
Weekly Zoom club get-togethers.
Following the success of last week’s Zoom meeting and other online meetings, Michelle de Mora is planning to run some sessions each week where members attend a Zoom call and discuss what projects they are doing during lock-down. It will give members a chance to discuss and share ideas. The first meetings are planned to run on Monday at 5pm and Wednesday at 2pm, and I will send out the links later in the week.
May 8th – Competition ‘Abandoned Places’ – as previously advised this is now a digital competition. The judge is Clive Greenland (LRPS, QGPP) and judging and feedback will again be online. The criteria is –
‘A photograph which depicts an uninhabited man-made structure in a location e.g. buildings, villages, outhouses, ruined castles. Internal views of abandoned structures are permitted, as well as external views.’
These photos should evoke a mood or feeling of the passing of time, loss or change to a way of life. Please submit images by 24th April.
If there are any other members who would be willing to make a short talk or video about their photography for us to share with club members please let either me or David know. The Club has grown into a supportive and vibrant community and we would like to keep this spirit going during this challenging period.
Donations from Club Funds
As previous advised we had such a successful Salon in 2019 that we found ourselves with surplus funds in the account. The Committee decided to donate £100 each to the Dorothy House and Frome Foodbank charities as their fundraising ability has been severely restricted during this difficult time and this money has now been sent to them.
Don’t forget that the deadline for submitting images for the PAGB Interclub Projected Digital Image Championship is 24th April, so please send up to 6 of your best images to Jane.
