At least 50 people turned up for our first meeting of the year … it was great to see old friends, and to meet new ones! Several folk have applied and paid for membership – we welcome you all and hope you will enjoy being part of this vibrant group of photographers! Susan and Harry are back here again from France, and Nicole is back after her ‘Artist in Residence’ sojourn in Paris. Bernard, as our new Chairman, started off with a number of notices, and Paddy and Irmel informed us of projected plans for outings and audio-visual workshops. A number of prints came up for Evaluation – Nicole and Ken Woods doing the honours. There were many digital images submitted -the quality of work was excellent, and we hope to see this standard following through into this new year. Members seem to be experimenting more and gaining good results – keep it up!
After tea Steve Crane gave a short talk on two aspects of Photoshop – changing digital images into Black and White; and changing a particular part of a B&W image into colour. Links to these techniques can be found here.
Details of the outings on 23rd January (US ‘Jool’) and 30th January (Full Moon) will be sent to members by e-mail.
Next month’s set subject is ‘Candy/Sweets’ – give it a try – you’ll be amazed at how creative you can be!
