Thursday speaker is on the subject of Wedding Photographer, an area which I think fills many of members with a sense of dread. Nottingham based Gordon will provide tips and thoughts around taking wedding pictures.

Melbourne World War One Centenary Photographic competition
To contribute to Melbourne’s remembrance of The Armistice Century, Melbourne Photographic Society have launched a photographic competition with the theme of “Comradeship”. We are hoping for hundreds of entries, of which the winning and highly commended entries will be selected to be on exhibition on 27th October at Melbourne Assembly Rooms. There will be a prize of a £50 voucher for the winner to spend at the photographic retailer of their choice.
The competition is open to all local photographers. We are not looking for photographical technical excellence, just for creativity around the theme of Comradeship. The theme is open to individual interpretation, but entries must have the Armistice centenary at their heart.
The deadline for submissions will be Friday 12th October 2018, with the winners notified on 19th October 2018. The winning entry and highly commanded entries will be on display at the Melbourne Assembly Rooms on Melbourne’s Remember day – Saturday 27th October 2018.

Colin Lusby will present with A3 Colour and monochrome prints covering a variety of subjects, the vast majority of which are new or have been produced within the last 12 months. This is very much a ‘light hearted’ talk, questions, comments and feedback are welcomed.
Colin who hails from Grimsby has previously entertained us with tales of Haddock as well as judging for us. Its always proved an entertaining night.
The society is holding an exhibition at Swarkestone Nursery on the 20th and 21st October. This will be held in the Garden Centre over the weekend. We really need volunteers to help setup/take down the stands and man the stands on either of the days.
We are planning to setup at 8 O’clock on the Saturday and need people manning the stand 9 to 5-30 on Saturday and 10 – 4:30 on Sunday. Additionally we need help taking the exhibition down on Sunday and transporting back to the storage at Thomas Cook Hall
We also need prints to exhibit, so if you can bring any on Thursday the 18th. So if you can help in any way please let Tony Pedley know please.
