meeting 14th August 2018

This evening we started off with our monthly competition on leading lines. Derek helped by reminding new members the rules. We had many entries and the winning photo and second place was both by two new members so well done. Our next competition will be an open subject.
For the next part of the evening members brought in their laptops so they could edit their photos and when needing any help would ask and even maybe have a discussion and a demonstration. I hope everyone came away feeling a bit more settled and the feeling they are able to open up about what they struggle on because we are all in the same boat.

Keith asked why we were not entering the Photographic News competitions this year. Terry said that the photos he was receiving were not up to standard and the administration of it was too time consuming.
