Friday 4th September was the first day of our new season – a time for getting together with old friends, finding new ones and discovering what the new season has to offer. With so many people attending we had to get extra chairs out. Our Chairman, Philip Hinton, welcomed everyone giving a special mention to newcomers, many of whom had seen our Annual Exhibition in County Square, and, for the benefit of our new visitors (hopefully soon to become APS members) explained the ins and outs of club competitions and speakers, workshops, outings and all the extra activities of the club.
Ian Macey then put on a spectacular show of his work, talking us through each image and explaining how he had started quite a short time ago and developed into the photographer he is today. His first love is motor cycle racing and he was name perfect on each and every image, and in one series of photos took us on a circuit around Brands Hatch so that we could see just where he was positioned at the time he took the photos. Other images showed that Ian is not limited by his devotion to bikes and bikers and we were treated to views of Canary Wharf, wildlife, landscapes and portraits. Ian also explained how he used Lightroom to show his images to best advantage. An excellent evening of photography by one of our own members – an inspiration to us all.

Next Friday, 11th September, we have Ken Scott ARPS (www.touchingthelight.co.uk) explaining his photography under the title of Project Infinity. Visitors and new members always welcome.
