The talk which Kenny Mclean from Cumbernauld and Kilsyth gave tonight was both interesting and inspirational. It charted his own and the camera club activities during Lockdown. Working with themes the club had competitions which inspired them to get their cameras out and get creative. The themes were varied and included "Make me Laugh", "Abandoned" and "Liquid". There were some wonderful images and the Motherwell members were left in awe of what the club had managed to achieve during the restrictions.

Linda Greenhill's image of a red squirrel was accepted into The Scottish Photographic Federation Image Portfolio which was the subject of the meeting tonight. There was a record attendance by members who were all in agreement that the quality of the images was outstanding, especially those on the subject of wild life.

11th March
Landscapes and People was the theme of the talk given by John Tilsley from Martistown in Dorset. The first half was mostly stunning landscapes taken by John in Iceland and Finland. He is also interested in Railways and took us to Swanage Railway where people featured greatly. Canada, Norfolk and Suffolk also featured and John also gave a lot of information and advice about putting your own stamp on images rather than go for the standard images taken by most people. Black and white images featured heavily when John thought that this would suit his images better than colour.
It was an excellent talk and our thanks go to John for giving us so freely of his time and also shared with us his passion for photography.
