12th October's meeting saw an interesting talk on the often lauded photographers paradise of Cuba. Ex-BPS president Paul Richards had entered a competition run by a leading UK photography magazine to win an all expenses paid photographer-led trip to Cuba.
Paul had long forgotten entering the competition when he got an email saying he had won a prize and giving a contact number. As would all sensible people, Paul put it straight into the trash bin fearing an obvious scam. Later a follow up phone call from a leading photography tour company convinced him that he had indeed won a fabulous trip to Cuba.
Imran Mirza was a member of our club some years ago. He has become an established professional photographer and was kind enough to come back on 5th October to describe his journey. It was a very frank, warts-and-all account leading to the title of his talk, of course.
Our first practical evening of the year was on 28 September when the club took on Still Life. With a total of five still life set-ups provided, there was a reasonable choice and space for everyone to have ago at each one.
