Marion has picked the new theme for 24th November - 'Turning'
There's lots of scope for interpretations on this one so hopefully you'll be inspired and we'll see your 4 images on the 24th.
Brian Dowdall and Steve Knight went to John Taylor Hospice today for one of the two practical sessions. They got the day care patients taking photographs - well done guys x
This is an update on the Holy Trinity Photoshoot - the people that went did a collection to thank the church. We raised £46.70 - this has just been handed over today x
We had our first PDI Merit 1 competition last night - all I can say is WOW! - John Haines was treated to over 100 images and gave very useful critique. It was a fantastic collection of images and as always very interesting to see what we are all taking. Congratulations to the authors placed - results and images will be posted soon.
Today a few of us met at Holy Trinity Church to do a photo-shoot. We had a great time with lots of tips and tricks shared between members. Some were brave enough to climb the stairs to the roof. We'd like to thank the church for allowing us to do this and the warden, Colin, for giving up his time to unlock the church. We will be doing a collection and sending in a donation from the group to thank you and will be sending you some of the images too.
Thank you to everyone who has helped out at the recent PR events, we have two more booked for the rest of the year. Details will appear on facebook and will be announced on the evenings closer to the time
A few people got together and went to Tutbury on Sunday - apparently it was a great day and there was lots of photos taken. Hopefully we'll see some of the results in the first PDI on 20th Oct
Brian and Kylie began working with John Taylor in August. Since then there have been a number of photoshows done for day-care patients by Brian, Graham and Kylie. The next step is to get the patients taking photos for themselves. We are working with the centre with the aim of updating the hospice area wall art. Each interested day-care patient will take images, they will be printed and framed with their name in the mount.
We will need some volunteers to help with the practicals when they are booked
We could do with some help soon to get through the charity requests that have been made to TPG. The events will be announced shortly and if you can help, please let Kylie or Brian know
We now have a different flickr page set up for the Sutton Coldfield Photo Legacy Project that we want to do
At the start of September we were lucky enough to be awarded a grant for £2774 from Sutton Coldfield Charitable Trust.
The money is being used to purchase a new projector, laptop, Photoshop CS6, Lightroom 5, Lightbox and Colourmunki. We are very grateful to the Trust for giving us this money to enable us to develop the club and help the members.
