The plan was to open with ' The Good, Bad and Ugly', a fifteen minute slot to showcase members images which had been sent in the previous week offering the chance for other club members to share their thoughts on what they liked and how they felt the image could be improved. OH NO! the laptop wasn't connecting to our projector! Not to worry, whilst the technical hitches were being ironed out, it was quickly on to the next segment of the meeting, a fun photography quiz! Club members were split in to small groups to complete a small number of questions on some of the basic technical aspects of photography and it wasn't long before the new members were beginning to get to know each other and share their knowledge.
With the technical issues sorted, it was on with showing the member's images ranging from portraits to wildlife, macro to landscapes, members openly shared their thoughts and discussions quickly opened up giving everyone an opportunity to take something from the comments whether it was their image on show or not. Some refinement is required, but it is early days and it was nice to see and share the member's images.
Thanks to everyone who attended, it was a superb first evening and we can't wait for the next meeting on sunday 12th May at 7pm. Please see here or our Facebook Page for more info.
