The members met to critique images which they may wish to use for open rounds and to get feedback from other members.  This had proved useful last season so that advice could be taken on board and images amended and improved in time for submission.  It also allowed new members to see the type of images which would normally be submitted for competitions.

Mr Kieran Murray, from Banbridge Camera Club, was the first visiting speaker of the new season to Ballynahinch Camera Club. Kieran gave a very interesting and informative talk on some of the numerous places he has visited in Europe including Iceland and Romania. He illustrated his talk with a large number of high quality prints and answered the many and varied questions from his audience.

Next week's meeting takes the form of a critique evening when images, which have been submitted anonymously by members, will be shown and constructive criticism will be invited from the whole meeting. This type of activity proved to be very useful last year when it was trialled for the first time.

The members of Ballynahinch Camera Club held their first meeting of the new season in Edengrove Presbyterian Church Hall .  Club Chairman John Knipe welcomed a good turn-out of both new and old members to the club.

Frances Price (club secretary) outlined the programme of events for the 2017/18 season. It is hoped that the programme has a good mix of hands-on, educational and social activities to appeal to all levels of photographic ability.  All members, from the most experienced to the totally inexperienced, were encouraged to submit images for the various photo clinics and competitions which will be held during the year. Most of the competitions are 'open', but the two themed rounds this year are 'Infrastructure' and 'Food' so there is plenty of scope for creativity. Frances gave a short demonstration on how to prepare prints for competitions and John Knipe demonstrated how digital images could be prepared and submitted.

The speaker at next week's meeting is Kieran Murray from Banbridge Camera Club. Kieran is a very accomplished photographer and entertaining speaker. His talk is entitled 'Images of Iceland'.
