The competition is in two parts, for prints and Digital Projected Images (DPI's). There is no set theme, you may enter any pictures of your choice.
The arrangements are:
1 Member's may enter up to two prints and/or two DPI's.
2 Prints should be mounted in standard mounts (500x400mm or 400x300mm. 20"x16" mounts are acceptable). They must be handed in at the meeting on 16 March. If you are submitting prints you must also upload a jpg copy to the online Gallery in the usual way by 16 March.
3 DPI's must be uploaded to the online Gallery by 16 March.
UPDATE - We will still be running the competition even though meetings have been cancelled. The entries will be judged remotely and results will be publicised subsequently. If you were intending to enter prints please upload the digital versions as previously advised, but there will be no facility to judge the actual prints.
All the fun of the - - - AGM!
Gallery: "Spring is Sprung". A change from the original gallery for this month. All locked down and nowhere to go? Well spring is springing all around us, indoors as well as outdoors, so no excuses.
We are hoping to arrange a Photography Workshop, details will be published as soon as possible.

It's almost mid-summer so you might like to take advantage of the evening light to tgake photographs around Settle. Alternatively there will be a "Camera Clinic" for members who might wish to learn more about their cameras.
Gallery: "A Camera Technique". This is all about making a photograph which is out of the ordinary but achieved totally in-camera. So no Photoshop trickery, just camera trickery such as use of long or short shutter speeds, camera movement, or any other creative way of using a camera you can think of.
Tue19May202010:30Parceval Hall, near Appletreewick.
We paid our first visit to Parceval Hall as a Group last autumn, and highly enjoyable it was. Everybody said we should really go there again in the spring for the flowers, so that's exactly what we'll be doing

A Panel is a collection of photographs designed to hang together as a set, so telling the viewer more than can be said by a single picture. Tonight we will look at examples of members panels and hear how to go about creating a panel of your own.
Gallery: "The Great Outdoors". We live in a wonderful part of the country, so this should be easy! Rumour has it there are also other outdoor places which aren't too bad, so there should be plenty of scope for this one.
Thu23Jul202010:30Threshfield Quarry, near Grassington
We've been here before, on a glorious hot sunny day, so how will it be this time? Whatever, it's the kind of place which will be well worth a second visit, whether to explore a corner you missed last time, to try again for a shot you wish you'd taken before, or even just because the light and weather are almost bound to be different. And if you haven't been before then now's your chance.

Margaret and Rod Smith will talk about and demonstrate aspects of processing images, not just how to make changes but why you might want to make them in the first place.
Gallery: "The Great Indoors". Indoors could mean at home, or other buildings, or anywhere that's not outdoors.
Meet in Skipton for some photography as the light fades and the lights start coming on.

Mon21Sep202019:30Townhead Court, Settle
Just what it says on the tin, we'll be enjoying some short presentations made by members.
Gallery: "Outside the Box!". Think outside the box and let's see pictures you wouldn't normally take. Health warning - this will probably mean venturing outside your comfort zone, but it's quite safe!
Tue22Sep202010:30Leighton Moss RSPB reserve, near Carnforth
Always well worth a visit, and we haven't been for a while.
