Club News - Nov 2016

Welcome to the November 2016 Newsletter.

We’ve had a great set of meetings throughout last month with an encouraging number of attendees and two well received lecturers.

In the coming month of November we have 2 guest lecturers:


1st November
Barry Payling “Wild Britian”
Wild Britian is the slide show which Barry tours with annually around the UK. The content changes each year and although Barry is renowned for his landscape work the show features many other subjects – along with Barry’s anecdotes. Shot on Hasselblad cameras and Velvia 50 transparency film the images are projected via the world famous Hasselblad
PCP 80 projector. The show consists of two halves of 45 minutes with a 15 minutes break.
