Underwater Photographer of the Year 2017
There are some great images here, probably requiring some specialist equipment..
We had our committee meeting about a month ago to sort out next year’s assignments. (These are now in the diary.) The current committee are happy to continue for the moment, however we are happy to invite anyone who wishes to join the team as a new member of the committee. The current gang are:
Fred, Phill, Symon, Tony, Neil and Anita.
The club finances are good, we currently have:
Bank £1,168.28 Rent Due -£240.00 Petty Cash £36.65
The rent will be paid in the next few days, that’s the total rent for the year. We have decided to give a gift aid of £100 to WAG (Willingham Action Group) They have supported us for many years, with the exhibitions we run each year.
We hope to get other guest speakers in next year, there are a few possibilities we are looking into.
We are also looking at field trips for 2017 as well as workshops and social events.
Stephen reports that ‘Affinity Photo‘ has now been released for £40.
Here’s an interesting hardware add-on for Lightroom – the Loupedeck. It’s still at the crowdfunding stage, but I’m certainly intrigued.
Am I £200 intrigued? Hmmm.
Do you think you could be the next Master of Photography? Only 7 days left to enter: see here for details.
This year’s finalists can be seen here. The competition is now closed, but you can always enter next year.
Our thanks to George for an entertaining and instructive talk – and with next month’s subjects including “Album Covers” there is probably quite a lot of scope for putting into practice some of George’s composite photo techniques.
Some of these are tricks, others I would describe as merely techniques, but they are all fascinating and some are revealing.
And now you know why Francis gave up Wedding Photography!
