News, news!    (updated 27/02/2017)

    Bradford Abbas Shield 2017: Your Club Needs You! The 2017 inter-club competition comes around again in October. The subject for entries is "Agriculture" so please keep that in mind over the next few months as you are out and about with your camera. As usual we will need to select 10 images (5 prints and 5 projected) with no more than 2 entries from any one photographer.

Up-coming programme

    March 1st Richard Martin will share images of his recent (and somewhat eventful) trip to New Zealand, taking in stops in Singapore and Melbourne along the way. The monthly challenge for this meeting is Winter Photography ..... so while there is still some winter out there, brave the cold and get out and about with your camera!

    April 5th This month sees a welcome return by Don Bishop. He will be sharing his thoughts on landscape photography and demonstrating the use of filters to add more punch to your landscape images. Now, I did recently see a photo blog somewhere advocating two particular filters for the budding landscape photographer so hopefully I'll find out more from Don about how to use them.
