General Meeting – Jan 26th @9.45am

We are approaching the 2nd anniversary of Sandy Photography Club, and it’s time for the first General Meeting of 2019, which will meet at 9.45am in the large lay-by opposite Willington Post Office on the main road to Bedford (postcode MK44 3PS).

At this meeting, we will be reviewing our pictures from Task 08, ‘Fields’.

We will also be discussing a Photography Competition being held by the Friends of Paxton Pits Nature Reserve.

Although the date of the General Meeting has changed, I would still like to keep the submission date for Task 8 as Thursday 17 January, please.

If Santa Claus brought you any new photography toys, please feel free to bring along with you, especially if you have any questions about using it/them.

I would like to say again a great thank you to all your work and engagement in Sandy Photography Club.
I try to promote our Club and your work within our small community and across country, and your brilliant photographs are getting more popular! This makes me proud and happy that we are doing so well. I hope you are also proud, and motivated to take even more brilliant pictures!

I would like to wish you all the best for 2019.

Always Yours
Carlos

General Meeting – July 29th @9.45am

Dear Members,

Our next General Meeting will be on 29th July, 9.45am, Sandy Library, cost £3.
To gain progress in your photography, we each have preferences of style and subject.
Probably you have seen pictures that you really like.
Who inspires you? How would you recreate this picture?
I would like to push you to find a photograph that inspires you.
I would like you to present this at the meeting and talk about why you like this particular photograph and also tell us something about the photographer.
In future workshops, we will attempt to recreate your favourite photograph as a group, and we will talk about this more at the meeting.
Please send me a copy of your favourite picture by Thursday 27th July so I can show it at the meeting.
If you want to research photographers, maybe the best way is just to Google!
All the best to you 🙂
Carlos
