This week we had our first PDI Merit Competition of the season via Zoom. We would like to thank the judge - Pat Couder CPAGB, BPE 1*. Pat is from the South London Photographic Society and was contacted through the Zoom Register. Pat did an amazing job which we all agreed on, she has a great eye for the composition and finding all the things that you don't want a judge to find. The evening was enjoyed by all that attended. Thanks again Pat. Results can be found here.
Next week we have a talk entitled "Composition rules and myths" by Sue Clark LRPS. This is another photographer that has come from the Zoom Register which gives us a chance to see work from Photographers outside our region.
It is also hand-in for the 1st Themed Competition, the subject is Architecture.
Aston & Erdington PS are conducting meetings via Zoom until further notice due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
