3rd July 2018

This evenings meeting was held in the tv room due to football. This was fine do to our short time inn there. We started off with our monthly competition on macro. Club members then judged the competition with the winner being Cheryl.
We then had a quick chat with new upcoming members which came along to the meeting and spoke about what they do. Our chairman then reminded members that the following meeting on the 17th July will be our open monthly competition for members only, along with giving members a chance for feedback on panels.
Panels is a competition entered singly . This was won one year by our chairman Cheryl. This year to get us into the mood as well as have a play and learn about them we have asked members to bring in some of their ideas on panels so we can critique them and chat about them. These images can either be brought in as prints or on a USB.
We also have asked members if they wish to bring in any of their images from the beach walk we had on this night to also bring them in on USB so we can have a look at them.
Once these annoucments were over we then as a group took a little walk down to the beach where we saw some members using filters for long exsposure shiot, glass balls and even the use of a standard mobile phone.
Thank you for coming and we will see you all on the 17th
