    These annual inter-club competitions are held between Brechin, Mearns, Carnoustie Camera Club, Carnoustie Photo Group,  Kirriemuir Photography Club and Arbroath & District Photography Club.

    This will be an Image Workshop and Group Discussion evening.  Remember to bring along your prints for discussion with other members.

    The subjects selected at the last club meeting were:

    "In a mirror"

    "Fruit(s) or vegetable(s)"

    Remember also the suggestion from Steve Whittaker that pictures should perhaps be about the subject rather than simply of the subject.    Make and print (any size) a photo or two of each of the subjects and bring them along to share and discuss with others.
