Cancellation of reflex meeting 9th November 2017

It is with regret that we will have to cancel this week’s “desk top evening” on Thursday 9th November 2017.
 
Unfortunately, for the second time this season, the Rainham School for Girls has given us very short notice of the fact that they will be unable to accommodate us at our usual venue. As this is a meeting without a booked judge or lecturer we have made the difficult decision to cancel the evening.
 
Please accept the committee’s sincere apology for this cancelation and I hope to see you  all on 23rd November for the Novice Cup.
 
Kind Regards
 
Martin Mitchell.

Beginning of the 2017-18 season

The Reflex Photographic club held its opening evening of the 2017-18 season on Thursday 7th September.

It was great to see so many members, both seasoned members and several new members, for this well attended evening.

We started with a description of the forth coming season and explanation of the competitions and rules for the year.

After our break One of new members bravely allowed us to review a number of his images and was gracious with the “constructive criticism”  that was given.

Next week, 14th September, we will be having a demonstration of print mounting and digital image preparation. I hope to see another hull house for this evening.

Martin Mitchell.
Chairman.
