With our AGM coming up on Monday 12 November it’s time to get your “Best of Year” entries in. This can now be done online – head to the SALON ENTRY page and look lower down for the link to the entry form.

There are no grades for this competition. You can enter just one digital image and one print. Each of these must have been entered into one of the four Salons held during the year, or be fundamentally based on it (for example, small improvements in line with judge’s comments at the original competition are acceptable). The competition will be judged by Simon Woolf who will present the results at our End of Year Function on 26 November.


The last Development Group meeting for the year will be at 7:30 pm on Monday 5 November.

I hope you’ve been getting on with your homework, which is to  work on photographing just one or two small objects. Try several versions of each, and be ready to talk about the issues you struck, how you tried to deal with them, and bring the resulting questions you still have. Then we can have a good round-table session offering help.  The images don’t need to have a lot of post processing. It’s the taking stage of things we will be concentrating on. Like trying to capture photos of my little friend Justin Beaver here.  See you Monday.
