The Off Season Fun club has been established. Once a week the nine members will send an image appropriate to the theme (chosen by the members) to the other members of the group who will then be able to comment about the other members work. The first theme was fun, good to see members enjoying their photography, taking fun pictures as well as more serious ones.
The theme for next week is reflections. More to come in the next few weeks.
The themes for the theme competition next season have been chosen by the winners from this season.
Linda has chosen BRIDGES for the images and
Wullie has chosen THE DARK SIDE for the prints
Due to the Coronavirus situation, the committee have decided to cancel the rest of the meetings for the season. We have taken the decision with a heavy heart but considering the advice from the government we feel we have no choice.
The prints for the last print competition are with the judge so we should be able to get the marks from them. That only leaves the Hugh Shaw Trophy competition and there has been no decision on that as yet.
We hope the members will agree that we have made the correct decision and we look forward to seeing everyone next season.
Motherwell’s own Zaria Sleith was the guest instructor at this week’s meeting. Her subject was “Still Life – Water”. Zaria set up three tables with different projects on each. The members were encouraged to try photographing each of the projects with subjects such as dropping fruit into water and colour droplets entering the water. It was a very enjoyable, interesting and unusual evening.
We were delighted to welcome Libby Smith from Carluke to judge the 3rd and last image competition.
She gave an excellent critique on all the images, including good points and ways to improve all the images in the competition.
The results were as follows :-
1st The Wicked within the Innocent by Wullie Graham.
2nd Tumbling by Dominic Smith
3rd Head over Heels by Linda Greenhill.
