John showed us a careful selection from the many images he shot in and around Dehli, Agra, Jaipur and Mumbai on his recent month-long trip -with his girlfriend- in northern India. He shared with us the challenges of making "unique" images in these much-photographed locations and we all recognised his total absorption in making pictures which kept his girlfriend waiting!
Mike summarised the Committee's frustrations with trying to fulfil the mandate to resume entering the East Anglia Federation [EAF -the Federation to which CoL&CPS belongs] competitions given by members at the 2017 AGM. With reference to some of the prints retained for entering, he reiterated the presentation standards with which our high-scoring images -whether print or DPI- need to comply if we are to enter such external competitions.
The evening finished with John Murray, Cathryn Rees, Natalie Robinson, John Wilder, Alan Larsen, Terry Fallis, Kate Shortland and Robert Wilkinson, whose images scored 19 or 20 in our most recent competition, recounting how they selected and processed their images; Hilary Barton and Chris Jepson spoke for Richard Eyers and Keith Cavanagh who were unable to be at the meeting. We haven't done this type of post-competition feedback before and it turned out to be a useful -and enjoyable- exercise which we plan to repeat.
