Photographic Group’s September 2020 Newsletter Published

COVID-19 continues to be part of our Club’s normal activities, if you can call it “normal”. Zoom online meetings allows us to keep in touch and still have our regular meetings, even if we are all in different houses, suburbs. It was good to see 3 new members join us on line along with one visitor from Ottawa, Canada.

The Group’s September Newsletter has been publish and is ready for you to access on the Club’s website’s homepage. September has been interesting with John Wiseman, local Wildlife Photographer, sharing his experiences in the pursuit of capturing great wildlife images. Our monthly Competition “Trouble” provided our judge (Don Munro) with a variety of images to critique.

There are some reminders of upcoming events as well as the requirements for the Group’s Print Makers “Print of the Year” competition.

Members are requested to continually check with the Club’s Calendar to review the 2020 Programme for any possible changes due to COVID situation.
