A while ago, several of our members set out on what turned out to be a long, sometimes difficult and sometimes emotional journey, towards some Awards for Photographic Merit(APM's).
All the members who went for awards deserve huge recognotion and congratulations as their efforts really put our club on the map. The months were filled with shooting new genres, way outside many of our comfort zones. The knowledge gained in post processing was vast - even after a difficult few months, lots of knowledge was gained.
4 of our members were successful in their bids. So very many congratulations to:
Alex Kryz LRPS
Marj Freeston BPE1*
