Last Night – AGM and Critique Night

The season draws to a close already, and we meet at the library for the last time until October. It’s also the last chance for the News Team’s photographers to look for new compositions, new images, in the familiar environment of the Soutar Theatre.

AGM first, with a number of office-bearers summarising the season (minor issues with powerpoint notwithstanding), the appointment of the new committee, and an outline of next years programme of speakers (looks great – details will be on our Programme page before long).

To follow – a critique night, for which several members brought in images to discuss, and we gathered in small groups to do just that. Some prints, some digitals; on laptops, tablets and phones. For some groups, it was a chance for the photographer author to talk about their image and what it means to them; for others, it’s chance to put the image up and let the viewers talk about what it means to them. Either way, there’s lots of good learning to be had.

Next week we’ll be dining out and doing prizegiving, so we’ll take a break from accepting new members, and will re-open our membership form in time for the start of next season.

In the meantime, our Facebook Group at Perth Photo Forum will continue over the summer as ‘an online place to learn from discussion of photography, by and for the people of Perth, Perthshire, Perth and Kinross, and surroundings’. So, not just for PPS members. And not just online – we also arrange a series of sociable photo walks. We’ll hope to see you out with your camera over the summer. Bon Voyages!
