Wrekin Arts Photographic Club Newsletter 13 2017/18 7 February 2018

This Friday there’s a change to the published programme. Unfortunately Norman is unable to present his talk “My Route to Distinctions.” However Jon Baker is showing the Midland Salon 2017 AV that he put together. Jon produced excellent AV’s for the Wrekin Salon and I’m sure that his new selection will not disappoint.

Calvin will give more hints and tips in Photoshop and Lightroom during the Learner Hour which starts at 6.45pm.

Next Friday, 16 February, we welcome another of our excellent members. Irene Froy MPAGB, Hon PAGB, EFIAP http://irenefroy.com (supported by Permajet) will present her new lecture, “Land Light and Atmosphere.”  We will have another great night with Irene’s distinctive images.

In the Learner Hour Calvin will continue with more photo processing tips.
