Well done to all.
After coffee and raffle, Jeremy gave a short demonstration on how to resize images for projection, something which we still get wrong on occasions and makes the Competition secretaries job more time consuming.
Finally a totally different demonstration from John EJ. He had been trawling charity shops for small and unusual picture/photo frames. He then took 1 of his images which showed numerous beach hut doors, and extracted small portions of that 1 image and matched them to the frames. A fascinating exercise and some really good and fun matches. I wonder how many of us are now thinking of doing something similar just for our own amusement.
Brian informed us that the club had been given a grant from WREN ( wind farm) to stage our 70th Anniversary exhibition next year. Thanks to Brian for the hard work put in to obtain this.
Steph is to send out a survey to members for a decision on where to go for the Autumn Foray on Oct 19th. Also she would like suggestions for the Spring Foray.
Jane then showed a thankyou note she had had from the Hospice. The profit from our presentation dinner last year had gone to the Hospice.
Next week, pdi 2. This time 2 images allowed per member.
