This will cover membership up until the next AGM on the 4th of October 2017. The monthly theme that we introduced last year has been very popular with members and we will continue the themes for the coming year. The theme for October is “Autumn”. Members are reminded that all the monthly themes, and all club meeting dates for the year can be found in the Calendar page here on the site.

We also intend to continue camera workshops and tutorials for members throughout the coming year. At the next meeting on the 19th of October, we will do a tutorial on Aperture (members reminded to bring your cameras).
