Season 2021 - 22 Gets Underway

President's Welcome - 9th September

Ken Lindsay kicked off the season with a fantastic President's welcome and gave an overview of the syllabus and guest speakers that will be featuring this year. With the perils of Covid still looming, we were unable to present the trophy winners with their trophies in the hall. Ken visited each prizewinner in person to present them with their trophy and took photos which were shown to all on the first night.

So far this season we have already enjoyed a wide range of events:

- Guest speaker Andrea Hargreaves presented a bespoke package of 'The art of metamorphosis' to Eastwood members. A very original and creative display of images, Andrea went through her creative process and unique style.

- Valuable post processing skills and advice was presented from Keith Beard, Colin McLatchie, Alistair Cassidy and Peter De Marco.

- External outing to Paisley Watermill Hotel.

- Informal Critique for newer members and the Summer Challenge competition.

- Very informative infrared photography presented by David Hendry with some fantastic technical and interesting background information and some further Lightroom workflow tips from Chris Everett.

We are pleased to report that we have a few new members this season and hope they will enjoy proceedings at the club, whether that be on Zoom or once we get to return to the hall to meet in person.

So we now look ahead for the start of the upcoming competitions and challenges for 2021 - 22. Good luck to all and bring it on!!!!
