Club update.

Hi all,

Emma has now flown off to the delights of Disneyworld, so I’m writing to confirm details for this week’s meeting.

It’s a members evening, which means we can cover things that members choose to. From suggestions made, we will be covering:-

1) Image critique – bring a maximum of five images on a memory stick for other members to constructively comment on.

2) Great local locations for photography – please be ready to tell us your top three favourites on the night.

3) If we have some time towards the end of the evening; developing your knowledge of your camera – using other members for support. Bring your questions, cameras & manuals.


See you then,

Hello everyone,
