Wednesday 15th September 2021 – “Show and Tell”

PLEASE NOTE that the potential hybrid meeting will not happen this Wednesday and that the only access to the evening will be via Zoom

This Wednesday evening the club will return to it’s seasonal programme by reviewinga. selection of images taken by members at the recent Penistone Show. If time permits there may also be an opportunity for others who were unable to attend to show up to 5 images which they have taken in the recess.

Now that we are able to return to the Club Room we are also going to try running a hybrid meeting this week, although as the technology is untested we are not sure how it will go. We are going to try using a tether system (thanks Ret) whilst Paul C logs on from club room. Mindful of the fact that some may still not be comfortable returning to the room it is an ideal opportunity to test the system before the programme”proper” starts in earnest.

If you wish to share any images on Wednesday (maximum of 5) this will be done by allowing you to share your screen with others.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

Preparing for the Show

It’s a “soft” return for members with this week being focused on the Pensitone Show which is taking place on Saturday. If you are intending to visit and want to be “part of the PCC Team” then log in to the usual Zoom Room at 7.30 on Wednesday evening.

 

 

Wednesday 30th June – Pye Flatts Meadow and POTY Round 2 Deadline

This Wednesday evening the club will host it’s final meeting before the summer break. Weather permitting it’s a field trip to the above Meadow to photography fauna. If anybody needs reminding where it is please contact Julie.

Perhaps of greater importance is the fact that it’s also the deadline for submitting images for Round 2 of POTY. They need to be submitted via the Members Area on here. For the last Round we will be moving to using Photoentry. If like me, you submitted images for Round 1 that weren’t “tack sharp” I suggest that you view your images at 100% magnification before uploading them – I know I won’t make the same mistake twice.

Wednesday June 23rd – POTY Round 1

This Wednesday is the day that we will all find out what the judge has to say about the images submitted in Round 1 of the Photographer of the Year Competition. Please try and “arrive” by 19:25 so we can start promptly.

Please also remember that those of you like me who haven’t yet submitted our images for Round 2, must do so via the website no later than June 30th.

Wednesday 9th June 2021

It’s a Double Bill tonight folks featuring our very own Adrian James and Richard Yarrow (not as a double act). Adrian will give us an illustrated talk entitled “Artisans” whilst Richard will regale us with anecdotes and images taken at “The Fallas Festivities in Valencia”. It’s possibly the only chance any of us will have to see Spain this year so probably worth putting in your diary for that reason alone.

 

The usual joining instructions apply.
