We had a very rewarding discussion based around  the L&CPU Folio C last night. These included tips from Paul Hill on photographing landscapes including the Milky Way and from Ian Whiston about checking your commercial monochrome printing and effectively darkening areas in a photo which are too bright and lacking in detail.

John talked about what to do with nature images which may not satisfy the new FIAP rules and how the L&CPU and PAGB are checking entries in their competitions for duplicates.

We went on the review the highest scoring images in this season’s competition with a view to use in the Great British Cup.

John demonstrated the cropping guide in Lightroom and then finally showed a selection of images from Flickr which he thought illustrated some powerful features of street photography; arrangement of figures, echo, perspective tricks, colour harmony and wit.
