1st February

Seven turned out on a nice bright day to see what the members were able to produce in the way of the topic ‘Pairs’
A surprisingly difficult theme, approached in different ways by several of the membership.
There was a discussion on the use of cropping an image after being taken, or within the camera (i.e. zooming) and the results,
especially the unintended ones when a commission is called for.
There was then a general discussion, initiated by John P, for moving forward the image of the Ashby Group in general, and the Interest Group in particular.
This centres (but not exclusively) on the possibility of a Facebook Group for Ashby.
Ideas for a rolling photographic ‘banner’ showcasing the main group and the interest group were invited for the next time.
We meet next on 7th March at Winchester Way.
