13th March 2018

This weeks meeting was our portfolio competition. This is a LPA competition where people put in their own personal photos which then get sent around to all the clubs. these photos are then put out and club members have to decide which they think deserves 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. these scores are then added up and the overall winners get 1st, 2nd and 3rd. The photos are then sent onto the next club and once they have been around all the clubs the scores are added up to find out the winning 1st,2nd and 3rd place.
Once we finished this we sat around as a group talking about photography and different subjects and things club members want to learn or are interested in. it was a very good and things came to a close at 9pm.
