The new season got off to a good start on Monday 11th September, with many old members and several potential members turning up. It was good to see so many new faces in addition to the familiar ones.
For this season, they have the usual five ‘open’ competitions as well as wildlife, portrait and audio visual (AV) competitions. They have three speakers giving talks on landscape, high speed photography and a travelogue entitled Overland through East Africa and the Americas. Also, they have club nights and an end of season photoshoot.
On Monday 25th September, they held their cracked lens competition, which was a great success. This competition is for the best PDI (projected digital image) on the night and is judged by the members. Well done to Geoff Walker who won with Leopard.
On Monday 13th November, there is an Instructional talk about AV by Chris Carne and Nigel Rea and on Monday 27th November there is OPEN Competition (2) to be judged by Harold Mousley LRPS AFIAP
New members are always very welcome; all you need is a camera – any camera – and a real interest in using it. Their members use DSLRs, mirrorless, compacts and bridge cameras. Regular meetings are held at Stowmarket Community Centre, usually on the second and fourth Mondays of the month between September and June. They start arriving at around 7pm for a 7.30pm start.
