On 27th June a group of club members went on a Falconry Experience Day with Wye Valley Falconry.
The day of the outing finally arrived and we were on our way. After a brilliant journey with little traffic we arrived at a warm and bright Chester. We were so fortunate with the weather after having had many cool and wet days.

The idea is to have articles of interest on matters photographic, as well as longer articles about the club. I have started with "My First Photograph". If any members have the makings of an article they would like published, we'd love to hear from you and can help with content and layout.
I'll be posting articles about my own old cameras and having fun with film.
Congratulations are due to Sue, Peter and Lin who visited Colwyn Bay on Saturday 27th April 2019 for their prints to be assessed for the "Awards for Photographic Merit" (APM) award by the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB).
They submitted 10 prints each for assessment which were then marked by a panel of 6 judges who could award between 2 and 5 points for each print, and they had to achieve a minimum of 200 points to be awarded a Credit.
Vince Penticost pointed out at our last print competition that the standard mount size has been metricated !
The standard maximum size for mounts is now 500x400mm, or 19.7 x 15.7 inches, slightly smaller than the 20x16 inch size previously used
The print competition guidance has been updated accordingly
On June 3rd we have a Members' evening for Panels
The idea is that club members should create and bring along a panel of between 2 and 5 photos which would be mounted or stuck on our standard 500 x 400 mount board. The photos can be any size but must have a linked theme so that they hold together as a panel. There is no set theme, it's the member's choice.
