PAGB GROUP VIRTUAL MEETING MONDAY 4TH january 7.15

The next meeting of the PAGB Group will be on Monday 4th January. Because of the pandemic of Covid-19 this will be a virtual meeting once again. All club members are welcome. Please log on at 7.15 so that we may make a prompt start to the meeting at 7.30 sharp.

The PAGB Distinctions group has been set up to help people work towards the many distinctions available to them through the PAGB and FIAP distinctions route. We also encourage members to enter images into both National and International Photographic Salons. A large part of the meeting is devoted to image critique, where members ask for advice on images which they may be considering for a Distinction panel or for submission to a Photographic Salon. Not everyone in the group is ready yet for Distinctions or Salons though, some members submit images simply because they want some feedback. So please join us via Zoom and observe what we do. You will see some wonderful images and will pick up tips on image improvement which should prove very useful. If you would like to submit an image for critique please email me, Ann McDonald, at pagbgroup@chichestercameraclub.org.uk and I will send you details. 

This month, in addition to image critique we will take a look at how to keep your salon acceptance records in a form that is compatable with the FIAP Dossier.
