Next meeting Jan 4th 2022

The winner of our Points of View competition the other night was Ian Whiting. It was a very close match and after six rounds Ian won by just one point over last year’s winner, Ann Brownbill. Congratulations to them both and to all the members who entered the competition.


Our next meeting will be on January 4th and, as things stand, it looks like this will be another event that we will present on Zoom. This is a Members Evening and we will be viewing PDIs that you have chosen to submit so that we can all share our views and perhaps suggest ways in which an image might be improved.


Our initial idea was to specify the theme of “autumn” for this event but after yet another strange year we have expanded the theme to “My Best of 2021”. This could include images of autumn but it doesn’t have to. For this event we ask that you enter what you consider to be the best or most important images you’ve captured during the year 2021.  The images can be of anything, taken anywhere, and presented in any way you see fit.  They just need to be images that you recorded during this past year.  You’ll be able to enter them via the usual PhotoEntry section on the website no later than the 31st of December. In PhotoEntry you’ll find this event listed under Winter 2021-22 Themed Events. You can submit one, two or three images but remember to submit them in your order of preference as, depending on how many entries we receive, we might not have time to show them all.


When your image is shown on the screen, you can explain why you consider it to be your best or most important image.  It might be an emotional shot, a unique documentary shot, a comical street shot, anything really!  It can be straight out of your camera, or heavily processed; it just needs to be what you consider to be among your best images recorded during this past year.


So, have a look at your work during 2021, pick those favourite images, and submit them for all to see and comment on!


Have a very merry Christmas
