Thank you Bill Chambers

Last week Bill Chambers delivered a practical workshop on “Painting with Light”. As usual, Bill hit us with a wealth of information ranging from making up your own tools and toys to the process of gaining different images by using different tools and of course, doing it safely. The night was informative, interesting and participants had the chance to make their own images. It was a great night and of course, Bill gave the” grey matter” a good kick start!

PSA Interclub – Colour/Mono

The club entries for Round 3 of the Photographic Society of America Interclub Colour/Mono competition have been selected on the basis of voting by the Advanced Grade members. The successful images were from Alex Hunter, Peter Finch, Peter Stanley, Chris Prior, Trevor Cotterill and Roy Killen. The images will be published in the club newsletter after the results have been obtained from PSA (which will probably be later March).

Due to the changeover to the new version of the club website, entries in the next rounds of the Interclub competitions (Travel, Photojournalism and Nature) are temporarily suspended. You will receive an email when the entries open again.
