Wrekin Arts Photographic Club Newsletter 17 2016/17 18 April 2017

The programme resumes this Friday after the Easter Break when Michael Krier FRPS, MA (Photography), EFIAP judges the 3rd Merit Print competition.

In The Learners Hour starting at 6.45pm, Calvin will lead a critique for both prints and PDIs.

On 28 April, we welcome Erica Oram CPAGB, BPE 1* from Sheffield with her lecture “Moments in Time” This will be Erica’s first visit to Wrekin Arts and we look forward to her visit with much anticipation.

Calvin will announce the topic of the Learner Hour later.

Friday 28 April is also the hand in night for the 4th PDI competition. Rules and a link to the online entry system can be found at http://wrekinartspc.com/competition-links-organisations-and-club-guides/ 

The ‘Put a face to the name’ page on the Club website is now open - see http://wrekinartspc.com/members-put-face-to-name/ This was a request at the last AGM to help people identify club members. Speak to Calvin or Ed to arrange for a Photo to be taken in ‘studio’ conditions at the Club on a Friday night. Of course if you have a favourite pic of yourself that you would like posted instead then Email it to Calvin in ‘the club PDI’ format and he will load it.
