We reviewed images from one of our Club Challenges, the subject 'Three' - these included images of wildlife, plants, still life, street photography and creative. A few examples below.

We also reviewed our various efforts at portraiture from a practical evening and also discussed the different ways we had processed them in post-production. What are the aims of a portrait? Do we shoot what we see or what the 'client' wants to see? How do we use the tools we have to greatest effect e.g. skin softening? Challenges we will be revisiting.
Two members presented images from living photographers with which they had made connection.
Philip M chose Joan Atkinson, an artist / photographer living in Maine, for her images of wildlife, cats and dreamy flowers, see https://www.flickr.com/photos/28961788@N05/
Howard chose two, Olga Karlovac for her monotone street photography
and Chris Dale, for his creative landscapes,
Vision and creativity were the linking factors in these choices and made us think that we too needed to experiment more. Guess we won't be running out of challenges anytime soon!
Next meeting: Review of Easter subject 'Spring', Club challenge 'Hats' among other things!
