Dear Members of Sandy Photography Club and Friends,
 
After Workshop XXII it is time for General Meeting.
We were lucky on the day – sunshine, Sandy forest, fresh air and great coffee after all! 

New member, Robert joined the SPC Workshop and straight away supported us with advice and enjoyed the walk, taking photos 😉
We have driven around our ‘secret mission’ route and checked the best positions to reserve for our future event!
More details will be revealed at our General Meeting, where you are very welcome.

Where are we meeting? 
 
In the large lay-by opposite Willington Post Office on the main road to Bedford (postcode MK44 3PS)

What to bring?

Yourself with camera, photos and good sense of humour as usual 🙂

How long is meeting?


We never know, after 2hrs feel free if you have other duties 😉

All the best to you 🙂

General Meeting – October 19th @9.45am

Good news for everyone!

We will discuss our film photography, taken at the last Workshop in Bedford. There will be a mystery element of surprise for everyone, as the films aren’t developed yet. And those members who could not attend the Workshop now can have a chance to try film photography on their own and should bring 3-5 printed 6×4 preview photographs, which they have taken between the workshop and this General meeting.

We are honoured that David H, who recently joined us, has agreed to share with us his experience on image composition. Simply put, composing an image means arranging elements within it in a way that suits the core idea or goal of your work best. Arranging elements can be done by actually moving the objects or subjects.

I cannot wait to see you all again!

Carlos
