As you may know the website was down so I couldn’t send out the weekly email on Monday. I posted it all on the facebook group instead, hopefully everyone saw it! But I am sending it out now the website is fixed, so hopefully it is not too late! Sorry for the inconvenience.
This week’s meeting is on Travel photography at 7:15pm in The Arts Tower LT06. (Free entry for members or £2 for non-members. Membership can be purchased at the door). This will be a short talk with tips, advice and stunning photos. At 8pm we will then continue with mounting photos for the exhibition. IF YOU HAVE SUBMISSIONS FOR THE EXHIBITION, YOU MUST GIVE THEM TO US AT THIS WEEK’S MEETING! Please write your name, photo’s title and a price (optional) on the back.

We also have a Give it a Go event this Saturday! Build your own camera obscura! This is guaranteed to be a fun and exciting event, as our lovely Darkroom Officer – Frankie is leading it! Tickets are £4 and available from the SU box office or website. Event link:http://su.sheffield.ac.uk/eve…/build-your-own-camera-obscura
Finally, I am planning to go on a Give it A Go trip to Yorkshire Wildlife park (YWP) on the 18th of March and would like some photocats to join me. Photosoc organised a joint trip with The Natural History Society to YWP, for a wildlife photography trip, last year. We had great feedback, and many of you have expressed an interest in re-doing the trip. However, the price we would have to charge would be more than the GIAG trip (GIAG trip is £12 online). So we thought that we could go on the GIAG trip together. This is not society led. It would just be a group of friends, who happen to REALLY like photos, going on a trip together. YWP is a brilliant wildlife park and an excellent place to practice wildlife photography because there are various walk-through areas and no cages or bars, so you get clear shots of everything! There is also a new arrival – Victor the Polar bear, who I am dying to see!
