Club Evening.

We have been advised by the East Anglian Federation of Photographic Societies that from Friday 10th December 2021, it will be mandatory for photographic club members and their speakers to wear masks at all times when meeting in public venues and libraries. The club will now meet remotely in a ZOOM session instead of in the library.

We also have a last-minute change to December’s meeting. Our speaker arranged for the evening has decided to pull out at short notice. Instead, Stuart Turner will describe an interesting technique used by Philippe Halsman in the context of seeking more relaxed portraits, and Chris Atkinson will give a talk on Visualisation.

The zoom address will be circulated to members before the event. If you wish to join APG, please complete an application, see tab ‘Join Us’ above; one of us will get back to you.
