'Rushpast' by Steve Swiss
Our first meeting of the new session, on 7 September, was very well attended. There was an impressive number of potential new members, a number of whom had brought their summer images to show.
Combined with the images already submitted by members into the Dropbox, we had about 200 images to show. Tom Heggie's suggestion of using half of each person's images was shouted down and we set out to show the lot!
Image of the Year - 'Honister Pass' by Graham Binns
On 29 June our President, Rais Hasan LRPS LDPS, had a very busy evening!
Before the main business of the evening, he acknowledged members' achievements in external competitions and qualifications during 2016-7:
· David Hopkinson won the Mabel Bruce Trophy for the best Architecture print from the YPU
· Graham Binns won a Certificate of Merit from the YPU
· Kyle Smith became a Qualified Member of the Guild of Photographers
· Rais, himself, was awarded the Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society
The club trophies were then presented.
'Plug Hole' by Graeme Mitchell
On 22nd June, we saw the results of our June Project. Of the five teams who started out on this project, four produced final results with imaginative sets of images for some very difficult topics. Each team explained their approach and the background to each image. After careful consideration by the members present, a vote gave a clear victory to Team 2 - Zulfi Ali and Graeme Mitchell for their set on the topic of 'Aperture'.
