Graham Bowen, Cliff Strong, Bill Low, Sandy Mitchell, Graham Pirie, Grant McLeish, Béla Simandi
Graham opened by welcoming members and our guest judge Mark Cargill.
Sandy introduced Mark who talked at great lengths of his passion for photography and his achievements as a professional. His first camera while still at Waid Academy was a Zenith, but has moved on to where he now writes for Digital Photography magazine, after testing new Cameras for several of the top manufacturers. He is also running his own 3 day courses on Digital Photography from his home in Windygates. His latest project has been shooting for Scottish National Heritage Trust doing features on sites such as Tentsmuir for their publications. Mark has judged competitions at a national level, most recently Digital Photographer of the Year.
Mark displayed some of his stunning work as slides and also in an Album.
As a result of Graham, Graham & Grant attending a Photoshop workshop in Dundee it was decided to purchase a Screen Colorimeter, probably a Pantone Spider 3. An article about this will be forwarded to you by Graham Pirie.
Spring outing this year is to be Culross in May, further discussion at next meeting
Mark Cargill then complimented the10 entries for the “People” Competition and after giving individual comments about each one announced the winners.
