Club meets start again for 2019/20

It was good to meet up with club members again after the summer break.  Two sessions in and we have covered a number of topics already

David Sage gave a couple of talks at our first meeting:  one on the On The Beach exhibition by Marketa Luskacov√° that he visited recently at Martin Parr's gallery in Bristol and a talk on the use of Negative Space and how it can enhance an image.

Out and about....part 3 - Bradford-on-Avon

The end of July, a lovely summer evening and a trip to Bradford-on-Avon.  Changeable weather gave some challenges, but also brought out everyone's creativity

Out and about....part 2 - canals and country parks

We must have a thing about canals.  A month after some of our club members visited Cean Hill Locks in Devizes, eight of us took a trip to Bathampton for a stroll along the canal, oh and a visit to the pub.

Out & About

Getting out and about.  That's the agenda for Lacock Positive members throughout the summer months.  Rather than our usual fortnightly club meets in the village hall in Lacock, we arrange trips to various photo shoot various locations.

On the 27th June we met up in Corsham, yes, where some of Poldark is filmed, for a smartphone photography challenge

On Sunday 7th July, we met up at Dyrham Park, a National Trust property 20 miles north of Bath. Dyrham is a great site, with park land, deer and a great historic house.....what's not to like?

We ended our Club year with a review of images from a recent shoot at Caen Hill Locks, our A.G.M., which included the  election of new officers, and celebrated all with our star caterer, Jean, serving strawberries, creams and meringues to our discerning members!
