Club Night News: 21st September

Members’ Night: image appraisals, Jed Wee ARPS

The idea of looking at pictures in a non competitive environment came from members and this was the second one, led this time by Jed Wee, acclaimed pro photographer, lecturer and judge. Not easy to pull off with such a large group, we were treated to an amazing variety of work, expertly critiqued by Jed who generated lively responses from the appreciative audience. Something completely different – well done all

More about Jed and galleries of his pictures are on his website here
