Saturday 6th October is Worldwide Photowalk Day. Come along to the Toowoomba CBD Photowalk. Hosted by your Toowoomba Photographic Society (TPS) and the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers (AIPP). Open to all levels of photographers.
You must log into the Photowalk webpage and register. Limited to the first 50 walkers only.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, our next Skills Night (25th September) will not be Macro, as previously advertised. Instead, we will be exploring light art, using pixel stick illumination. Please bring along your camera, tripod and shutter release cord/remote (if you have one).
Also, I can produce any special imagery or words, that you would like to illuminate behind your subject. Please email the President with your ideas.
Also, bring along a warm jacket in case it is cool outside.
For those attending the Stanthorpe Field Day tomorrow, there are several cars going with space to accommodate others.
Please indicate if you’d like a lift, I can get you in touch with a driver.

The aim will be to car pool. If we could have drivers (with spare spaces) contact me, I can offer up spaces to those interested. If you need transport, similarly, contact me and I will put you in contact with a driver, if one makes themselves available.
I’d like to be the first to congratulate Dr. Jenny Graff, on behalf of all members and the committee, for her acceptance as an Understudy Judge (USJ) with the Photographic Society of Queensland (PSQ).
Her very varied and highly-regarded portfolio came back with unanimous acceptance from the Judges’ Executive.
Well done Jenny, we look forward to your judging into the future, and best of luck.
