May 5th: Member’s Evening and Prize Night

This week is our final meeting that we added to facilitate the last 2 speakers of the season. I’m sure for those of you who attended those sessions, you will agree it was worth the extension.

The meeting will be an informal get together in the hall (see map), and it will give us a chance to reflect on this season, and gain ideas for the coming year and things we hope to do in the summer break. We will announce the winners of the competitions we have managed to hold online.

March 24th: Members Evening

This Thursday’s meeting is billed as a members evening. It is open to any members to show off their work, talk about their images, and offer other members the opportunity to comment in an open forum. It is suggested that we present maximum of 6 images each to allow everyone a chance to participate.  It’s not a competition but an it’s a great opportunity to get some constructive feedback from like-minded photographers. 

We have set the theme as the Lacock photoshoot that many of us attended recently, but this is only a suggestion. To make it more interesting please feel free to present any of your work on any subject, especially for those who could not make it to Lacock.

Jeff our projection secretary is co-ordinating the images so please send to projsec@trowbridgecc.co.uk for inclusion.

March 17th: Storm Chaser – Andy Garnham

This week’s presentation is by Andy Garnham and is entitled Storm Chaser.

As a child, Andrew was scared of storms, hiding under the bed covers at night when one passed by. As an adult this fear changed into fascination of all weather types. This resulted in undertaking multiple trips to the US to join others chasing storms across the mid-west. This talk aims to set the scene about what it is like to chase storms, the highs, the lows and hopes to share the incredible forms and structure rarely seen in the UK.
