Elaine Newington-Ward is the member who produces a seemingly endless stream of creative posters advertising our meetings and events, and tonight she will tell us how she does it.
Gallery: "Exhibition Pictures". We may or may not be putting on an exhibition this year, but upload your prospective entries into this gallery so at least we have an online exhibition.

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.

Volunteers needed to take it all down and put away. It's also very helpful if members can collect their pictures.

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.
