On 3rd January our first meeting of the year was very well attended. Over thirty members were present at The Cartwright Arms Hotel Aynho, and three additional guests also joined us for the evening.
The theme of the meeting was our “Best Three of 2017”. Members were asked to select and display their best three images (or their three favourite images) taken during the last year, and comment upon them saying where ,when and how they were taken, or explain what made the image one of their favourites. Martyn Pearse presented each submission of three images, and then invited the author to speak about them. Members then also contributed helpful constructive critique from the floor on each image, which often included plenty of friendly humorous banter. After a refreshment break half way through, the meeting continued. Most of the thirty plus members present had contributed some images. There was a very full evening program of excellent enjoyable and instructive photographs on a wide variety of subjects, which varied from portraits through to architecture, landscapes, macro and abstracts, with no shortage of imagination and creativity from the authors.
Our next club meeting is on the seventh of February at 7:30pm in The Cartwright Hotel, when Jim Muller will present a portfolio of images from a recent USA visit. All are welcome to attend.
Next months topic is “Anything Indoors” (open to your own interpretation).
