Peter enjoys working with a variety of media in addition to photography. He says that he feels compelled to interpret shapes, colours and ideas which form the basis of his new work. By capturing, isolating and creating an image, he tries to acknowledge and highlight its beauty. His overwhelming feeling is of shape, form and purpose.”

CLOSING DATE FOR NEXT WEEK'S COMPETITION

Monday 16th November TBC – Image Discussion subgroup CONFIRMED                                                                                                  

The Image Discussion subgroup, led by David Godfrey for the immediate future aims to encourage and help all members (but         especially less experienced ones) to take better pictures and improve those they already have taken. David says "I should                 comment up front that whilst I am an enthusiastic photographer with some club competition success I don’t consider myself a       qualified judge. I do however like to collaborate with those who have a similar enthusiasm for photography and it is within this       spirit that I offer my constructive critique of images on the night. I will also of course invite others on-line in the zoom meeting      

to comment on images too. When offering critiques of photographs I try to be considerate and honest by identifying the positives in the image whilst identifying areas that could be improved in my view. Hopefully I achieve this balance and you'll find the review   helpful"
