Monthly Meeting June 13th

This meeting was all about the annual exhibition and for the first time all the exhibition prints were on display so that members could vote for their favourites. As well as a popular vote the club had the pleasure of welcoming Erica Oram from the Sheffield Photographic Society once more. Erica agreed to appraise the prints submitted by members and provide some helpful feedback on their good points whilst indicating possible ways that they could be improved. She also pointed out her own favourites which allowed the club to award the Catherine Cup and the Dennis Thorpe Trophy.

(Results of the vote and the prints that Erica thought were exceptional to follow shortly.)

The exhibition always has a general category so that members can exhibit their favourite photo taken in the previous 12 months and a category that provides a bit of a challenge. The theme for this exhibition was “Man at work”.
