A little early this time.
Many thanks to Richard for our editing night on Zoom this week. It was fascinating to see so many different approaches to editing the same image – it certainly was an evening to think about what we do with the image after we have pressed the shutter.
I hope that you are all as excited as I am about our new season which starts on Tuesday 1 September. We will kick off with our Members’ Welcome Night – it will be a chance to hear more about our programme for the new year, learn about the roles of your committee and how they work to make our society so successful, have a PDI presentation of a range of our work from last year and learn more about our Specialist Groups and mentoring.
Remember to get those membership forms in for the new season. You should all have received an email with the form attached. If not, you can download this from our webpage – along with our new programme. We realise that there will be a few members who are not able or don’t wish to participate in our Zoom meetings – perhaps for the reason of internet security. You should all be aware that – wherever possible – all our Zoom meetings are recorded and will be available for a short time on Youtube. We will send out more information on these as the season progresses. There may be the occasional meeting that we cannot record as we obviously need permission from the presenter to allow us to do this.
Finally, it is always worth emphasizing that new members are the life blood of BPS and each year has seen a new income of photographic talent. Please let your friends, colleagues and contacts know what we are all about. And remember, for the month of September, all visitors attend free – all they have to do is contact me or Richard with a request to join a meeting. Social media is a great tool for this so a quick share on Facebook will spread the word.
Thanks for your attention and I will see you all on Tuesday.
