NEWSLETTER No. 32
Dawyck gardens 2
Six members travelled again to Dawyck Gardens a week ago. Although there was no wind or rain, the sun just couldn't penetrate the misty cloud so the conditions were good for some macrophotography and you can see some of the results on the Club website. I liked Liz Cole's picture of lichen speckled with water drops.
The first competition
I hope those of you who entered the 1st Exposure competition for the first time found the process helpful rather than painful. It should be treated as a learning experience. Take the tips and suggestions made by Sue and Doug and try and put them into effect. Some of the winning images are on our website and there will be some thumbnails on the club notice board at the next meeting.
Remember that next week is the handing in night for the Theme competition where three images are required that should 'work' together. As Gordon is away there may be a little delay in acknowledging your digital entries.
Seeking advice on your images
You will recall at the last members' night my seeking suggestions for change of two images taken at Jupiter Artland. I have been working on them and I will be showing the results at the meeting of 22nd November. I am keen to persuade some of you to submit images, printed or digital, for similar constructive assessment by members on that night. You can present them anonymously if that would help. I am happy to introduce them and you can get the advice without anyone knowing who you are!
At the same meeting Jack Tully-Jackson will be showing some pictures taken from an unusual position and talking about them.
Assistance with running meetings
In another attempt to enlist help in running your Club there will be a list on the notice board at the next meeting outlining what is involved in the various roles that need to be filled to keep your Club running smoothly, productively and sustainably.
