Our practical session on 2 February gave members the opportunity to wield their cameras and various accessories to their hearts content on 'table top' subjects .
Paul Richards started the evening by giving a short demonstration of a very powerful battery powered portable studio-strength ring-flash system that he found he could get direct from the German manufacturer at an amazing bargain price
Only a day late, we had our very own Burns Night on 26 January when Heather Burns came to talk to us about her work. Considering that she only started photography seriously four years ago Heather produces some terrific work in the rock music field that is published regularly in the magazines.
Hot on the heels of the Second DPI Trophy Evening, came the Second Print Trophy Evening on 19 January. This unintended concentration of competitions did not deter members who submitted 22 prints for the Hammond Trophy (Portraits etc), 36 for the Leighton Trophy (Pictorial) and 24 prints for the Storey Trophy ( Monochrome All Rounder).
This gave our judge Elaine Ligo LRPS a considerable challenge which she rose to admirably giving many useful and constructive comments as well as scores.
The JH Leighton pictorial trophy was won by Graeme Mitchell with 'Gatehouse, Markenfield Hall' (see header picture) with Rais Hasan's 'Tree on the Move' second and Andrew Holland's 'Malham Tree' Third.
