They were given the themes of family, friends or holidays at the beginning of the summer break and invited to bring in a photograph(s) to be judged.
Our esteemed judges were Steve Hyams of Burnley Camera club and our own GSL, Andrew Cooper, who we all know is never without camera in hand.

Steve went through each photo providing feedback on each entry and suggesting ways the picture could be improved. He followed this with a short presentation on technique as well as sharing some of his own award winning images.
The Cubs looked at a range of camera types from smartphones through to expensive DSLR cameras and lens. Costly equipment is no guarantee of a good photograph with demonstrating how to further improve the images they take.
The photos presented showed a wide range of subjects with several picked out as being of particular interest. Congratulations to Annalise, Connor, Jennie and Rohan for being selected as worthy winners.
Hopefully we can all take something from this evening and we look forward to seeing the results of our learning. Steve very kindly agreed to take the photograph of the winners so we had a record of how it should be done!
A massive thank you to Steve for sharing his time and expertise in a thoroughly enjoyable evening in which everyone learned something, leaders included. Thank you also to Andrew for helping with the judging and Nigel Taylor for providing the contact with Steve.
