Last month members enjoyed a Zoom-based presentation ‘My Passion for Wildlife Photography’ by Kevin Pigney ARPS, DPAGB, ASINWP. We held a prints competition ‘Transport’, which was judged by Roy Essery MPAGB. We also enjoyed a field trip to Daws Hall in Sudbury.

We are looking forward to this month’s events:

  • 9 March: PDI Competition ‘Animals’ – Judge: Barbie Lindsay MPAGB, EFIAP/s, FBPE, AWPF.

  • 23 March: Presentation by Peter Warne – ‘Night time and low light Photogaphy’.

  • 30 March: Prints Competition ‘Occupation, work or hobby’ – Judge: Chrissie Hart ARPS, DPAGB.

Full details can be viewed on our website.

This month’s featured image is by Martyn Scurrell. Martyn photographed this image following a recent workshop covering ‘oil on water’ photography.

We also continue to run our themed Facebook challenge. If you are interested in photography, at whatever level, you are welcome to come along to a free club meeting. We meet at Mistley Village Hall, on the second, fourth, and fifth Thursdays of the month between September and May at 7.30pm.
