What’s on at the Club Tonight
Dave Mason will be showing us some of his PDIs in a presentation entitled “Sequential Images”. Dave specialises in London street photography finding the extraordinary in the ordinary so this should be a good evening.
Next week (16 April) is a Members’ evening – your chance to show your work – volunteers please contact Steve Jones: firstname.lastname@example.org
And on Thursday 23 April it’s our Panel Competition on the theme “Londoners” (judge David Harford LRPS) – 3 to 5 mounted prints max 40 x 50 cm – more than one image per mount is fine.
