23rd JUNE 2021 - 'Sunset at Lyveden New Bield'
An opportunity to catch up with club members again, maybe not the sunset we hoped for, but there's always photoshop! A chance to capture the evening and take some images for the Decembers Competition Subject - 'Twilight'.
16th JUNE 2021 - Outdoor Portraiture with Barry Knott. What a great evening we had and what a fantastic turn out. It was lovely to meet everyone face to face and to meet new members for the first time. The Icing on the cake was Ann and May that had not been with us on Zoom. Barry and Linda put on an excellent spread and their garden was in pristine condition which made a lovely setting for our two models Emily and Sam who were excellent. It was also great that Barry had managed to collect together all the trophies and get them engraved so we could present them live for this years Annual and last years Monthly awards. A big thank you to Barry for going the extra mile.
9th JUNE 2021 - 'Foxton Locks'. We started our summer outdoor programme with a visit to Foxton Locks, our first outside meet up since 2019 and our first get together since March 2020. Long may this continue! With Monthly Competition subject 'Waterways' in October and 'Twilight' in December hopefully some of you found the perfect opportunity to get some entries in the bag.
2nd JUNE 2021 - 'Presentation of DPI Awards for 2020-2021 season'

'Sum More Pics wot We Like' by Dave Tucker EFIAP/g, DPAGB, CPAGB, BPE3*
It was nice to see a good turn out of Corby Members yesterday for a very informative and inspiring evening delivered in a relaxed and friendly manner. None of Dave's enthusiasm or personality was lost on zoom which can often be the case. The feed back from our members was extremely positive, we were shown a wide and diverse genre of extremely high quality photographs, thoroughly enjoyable.

21st APRIL 2021 - 'Composition – Rules and Myths' by Sue Clark LRPS CPAGB AWPF
Well yet another excellent speaker. We are being spoilt. A lively and lavishly illustrated discussion of how, why, and when the rules of composition developed and their validity in the creation of an image. You thought you only had the 'Rule of Thirds' to help with your compositions, now you can be inspired by 'Divine Proportions' , 'Hogarth's Curve' and let's not forget the beautiful 'Fibonacci Spiral'.
