Those dark December days seem a long way away, celebrated with their own Christmas Social, complete with seasonal jollity and memorable party pieces by their very own stars of stage and screen. All made possible by Frank, Sue and helpers, for which society members are most grateful.
Towards the end of their first half season, Tim Stott has hosted three useful informal training sessions. Although aimed at newcomers, they have they discovered, for instance recently, that modern digital cameras have two ‘curtains’ that control the flash function.
The winter period did provide a brief opportunity to air some seasonal frosty and indeed snowy pictures on the members Facebook page, where they are pleased that Rachael Scott hosts an informal monthly challenge. Here is Richard Woolven’s entry for the recent Sunrise or Sunset collection.
Nine further meetings comprise the second half of our programme and will include a number of visiting speakers, competitions and also a practical studio evening. Events for the month of February are as followed; with Audio Visual and How to Do It with Keith Leedham FRPS on Thursday 8th February. Also, ‘People’ Competition (prints only) / Judge Mike Cowling ARPS is on Thursday 22nd February.
They meet twice monthly on Thursday evenings until May 2018 at 7.30pm at the St John’s Centre in Manningtree. New members are welcome to join (subscription £40) or may attend initially as a visitor (£3).
