Hi all

The results of two external exhibitions have been announced this week and they bring further success for our members –

Frome Salon of Photography –

   Julie Hall – one acceptance Highly Commended

   Jan Harris – three acceptances

   Jenny Webster – 4 acceptances including one HC

Smethwick International Exhibition of Photography – 

   Acceptances from Tony Gervis, Julie Hall, Jenny Webster, Nick Veale and David Jellie

Apologies if we have missed anyone – the Smethwick website in particular is not an easy one to navigate through the results.

Well done everyone. If you have never entered an external exhibition but would like to dip your toe in the water, then give it a go – it’s not as difficult as you might think. It has been a difficult year for exhibitions due to coronavirus. Print entries have been cancelled, and some exhibitions have even been cancelled. However, many have carried on as PDI competitions only – some even have a Mobile Phone image category. If you want to know more about entering then why not talk to one of the more experienced members who enter on a regular basis.

Club night last week was a bit different from our average evenings. Adrian Weale gave an entertaining presentation on War Photography – using both his own images, and images from his grandfather – a Fleet Street stringer attached to the British 2nd Army during World War II. His presentation may have been a little light on images, but he more than made up for it with fascinating back stories and insights from world events that we have been used to seeing on the news or documentaries.

This week we have an early session with Beks introducing the next Roger Lewis Foundation Course. This will be followed at 8:00 with the 2nd PDI Competition – Colour and Nature. The judge is Paddy Ruske. We have 82 entries and this promises to be another night of high quality images from our members.

See you all on Tuesday

Best wishes
