Just a reminder that our development night is this Monday the 1st of May and is on Street Photography.
It would be a good idea to bring your camera so we can help set up useful settings combinations, etc.
This will be followed by a Meetup on the 13th May in Wellington to practice what we have learnt. It just so happens that the LUX Light Festival is on that day so we should be able to get some interesting shots. To RSVP to the Meetup please click HERE
See you all Monday 🙂

Bledisloe and Wiltshire Cup Results
The themed section this year the theme is “Putting People in their Places” – environmental portraits. That is, portraits of people (or pets) in their work or life environment, where the environment brings out the story. We have a fairly open mind about this definition – we are looking for quality and interest above all else.
You can submit for the general section or the themed section, or both. You can submit two images. These are submitted online via the PSNZ website.
