The One that Got Away
Feb 1 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
The One that Got Away @ Online via zoom

In this meeting you do not need to have taken any photographs!

We are all going to experience what it is like to be a judge. We all know how we always disagree with their decisions. It is our turn now.
This evening we are going to look at our own F.D.P.S. web page and explore some of the fantastic work our members have produced over this season.

You can find them by clicking on this link. There you will see all the members work from September onwards. Ones that have perhaps missed being in the top selections but in your eyes are excellent. After you looked through them, choose your five favourites.

Once you have chosen your favourites, not your own. You can send the image’s location, Competition name, title, and the number of the image and a few lines of writing to say why you chose it.
This could include the image’s, subject, colours, style or just the emotional impact it had on you. Please send the location of the images and the few lines of writing to me at the email address below.

In the session, we can discuss why you think the image you chose stands out from the crowd. The authors can say a few words about their work too.  

Any queries contact me: Email……

Members’ Evening – “A Showcase of Members’ Projects”
Feb 22 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Early in the season, members were allocated a random project subject to develop in whatever way they wished.

This evening will be dedicated to showing the results, which could be prints, a slideshow, a book or whatever format the member chose.

Members’ Review Evening

Members' Review Evening @ Castle Park Arts Centre

This is our annual feedback meeting where we present a review of the season so far and forward plans. It’s a chance to ask questions and help the committee drive the society forward.

With the major changes forced on us by the virus, this year’s meeting will be a vital part in our future planning so please make very effort to support your Society.

Mar 8 @ 7:30 pm – 8:45 pm
Members' Evening - Lightroom @ Castle Park Arts Centre

The first part of tonight’s’ meeting will be presented by Andrew Williams LRPS. The topic will be Lightroom and I shall be requesting topics from members in the weeks before the event. If you have any burning questions about any aspect of using Lightroom please email them to with ‘LR Questions’ as the title and I will try to cover as many of your questions as possible.

Seeing in Sixes
Mar 8 @ 8:45 pm – 10:00 pm
Seeing in Sixes

‘Seeing in Sixes’. The six images tell a simple story or non-story. You can shoot new images or look through your back catalogue.
We will share your short photo stories later in the season ( 8.03.2021) as a fun event. I have copied some of the main points in making a set for ‘Seeing in Sixes’:

Frodsham District Photography Members Evening ‘Seeing in Sixes’

We are asking our members to try to make up to three, ‘Seeing in Sixes’ collections.

· These groups of six images can be from your existing catalogues or freshly shot works.
· The six images can be of any size or arrangement
· The need to define your project.
· The images must be tied together with a theme.
· All the images to have a stylised visual similarity about them
· Text or poetry could be included to assist in a minor way with telling the story or give information.
· Save the six images and text on a digital file
· Work must be named, labelled, and titled.
· The viewers will be advised not look at the individual images but the whole work flowing, including text and arrangements.
· The small number of images should ensure the viewers are focused on what is in front of them and do not experience viewers fatigue.

Hopefully, we will be able to put these works on our web site for you to revisit.

Challenges for Members

· Making a group of super images rather than a super single image.
· Editing out images ruthlessly to create the perfect story or non-story.
· This will involve the photographer editing, sequencing, adding text and titles to the six images.
· Members will be able to present their images in a club session 0n 8th March, 2021.

Andrew and I will give you details of uploading nearer the time, but there will be space for the images, titles, and a box to tell the audience about your work.
