Welsh photographer Nick (not Neil) Jenkins Whose website is here, will be talking about landscape photography.
Tonight is also HAND IN night for the Fiona Govan Nature competition. That competition will be held on March 13th.
Could trophy holders please return them by tonight, so they will be engraved, ready for the AGM. (Except the annual cup, which hasn’t been judged yet. In theory…)
Fiona Govan was a club member and keen nature photographer, who sadly, died in 2015.
This competition, in her memory, does not follow rigid nature / wildlife photography rules and is judged by club members as a whole, with no external judge.
The rules will probably change with time, but for now, any “natural history” subject is allowed- wildlife or landscape. Cropping and sharpening are fine. Other post editing is allowed within reason, but no pasted lions on the East Lothian savannah, please.
Last year’s judging called for advanced mathematical skills on the part of two committee members and will be greatly simplified this year, probably to a “one person, one vote” system.
The Annual General Meeting:- Presentation of cups. Pleas for members to take on more active roles. Rumours of summer projects. General celebration.
As part of the Haddington 700 celebration, it is intended to put on an exhibition of photographs in the local public library (John Gray Centre) between the first week of May and the end of June.
This is likely to be a mix of images of Haddington, including any old ones members have, with shots of any events in the Haddington 700 event that have taken place to that point.
This has yet to be finalised. It will be discussed at the committee meeting on November 21st.
Nearer the time, help will be needed with the physical setting up and taking down process.
