SATURDAY - 27/01/2024
The very first of what we hope will be a monthly social gathering. We recognise that some nights we don't get the chance for nice long friendly chat with our members. So we're meeting for a coffee (or beverage of your choice) and a cake (or a snack of your choice) at a venue in and around Leeds. Camera's are optional. This isn't a photographic walk, but a chance to put your feet up with your fellow club members and chew the fat. Our first location is The Tiled Room Cafe at the Leeds Art Gallery at 10am.

31/01/2024 - Printing on the cheap!
The YPU and The PAGB are both worried at the amount of printing going on. It's the reason they introduced a new starting level award for prints only and the reason many other initiatives are print focused. Tonight, we look at how to get printing large competition standard prints for the least amount of money possible making that initial outlay a bit smaller.

If you have any creative ideas please bring them along. We already have one completely fresh and brilliant idea so don't forget to bring yours along too. You can also get to see how Adobe Portfolio works - it's included free with an Adobe CC account (Photoshop) as it's the tool we use to host our own website. Websites don't have to be difficult.

So we're going to meet at Golden Acre Park cafe at 10am on Saturday 24th for a chat and a natter and then afterwards anyone wanting to hunt down a hungry squirrel can do so. I've done this myself here so can tell you how easy it is to hand feed them.
