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.

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.
