June 2017

At the June meeting, members of the Stamford and Rutland Photographic Society competed for the Monthly Individual and Group Image Competition and took part in a photo shoot in and around the beautiful hall of Oakham castle at sunset.
 
The Competition topic was “Reds” allowing any image with an image including or with the colour red. As the saying goes you should always have a splash of red in a photo. Photos ranged from plants to boats to plastic bags and pretty much anything in between.
