Secretary's Monthly Report
It was 'all change' once again for Circle members at our February Meeting.
Following the success of our visit to Loxleys last November, the latest venue for our meeting was the studio and workshop of our very own Peter De Marco not too distant from our regular meetings room.
With much enthusiasm and more than a little patience Peter guided us through his professional work flow from setting up and posing his subject, his lighting set up, his post production processiing of the final image and his choice and type of printing paper for the final print.
Throughout the various stages Peter gave us many hints and tips which we can use to improve our own photographic results. I am sure I speak for all those present with a hearty vote of thanks to Peter for his hospitality.
Adding to the enjoyment of Peter's presentation, three sets of prints from potential new members were put on display for our customary 'voting' procedure.
I am delighted to announce that all three sets exceeded the requisite level of votes and the following have accepted our invitation to join the Circle.
George Robertson, Paul Millar and John Hannah.
We shall be able to welcome them in person at future meetings.
Next month we return to our usual venue for an informal night where we can have a good chinwag about matters photographic.
Our usual opening critique night in September was a good bit shorter than usual because of discussions on matters of business so please feel free to bring along some new work for assessment. Any other items, photography related, will also be welcome.
See you then
Rob the Secy
