Members’ Evening – Thursday 1 November

The theme for the members’ presentation meeting will be ‘Music’, which can be interpreted very widely. Put together minimum 5 and maximum 20 PDIs on a memory stick and bring it along or Email to pdisecretary@bromleycameraclub.org.uk at least 3 days before the event. This is a ‘show and tell’ so we would be interested in how, why, when, where the pictures were taken. The pictures do not need to be new – you can raid your back catalogue. Nor do photos need to be potential competition winners for their content or story to be interesting. They may be discussed but not judged or marked. The time available on the evening will be equally divided between those participating.

Congratulations to those scoring a 20 in Round 1 of the Mono Print Competition.
