ADAPS Year Book 2015-2016

7 Apr 2015 7:14PM   Views : 606 Unique : 361

Every year I make a Blurb book and invite ADAPS members to contribute images. They send me three or more shots and I select the two that fit the book best. This forms a showcase every year of the images that members are producing. We can see who was here and what they were doing, and this unfolds year after year.

This issue is the eighth in the series and runs to 86 pages. It used to be harder work than it is now, because the more books you make the easier it becomes. The time consuming bit is getting all the images in and making sure they are all the right spec.

This year, yet again I'm really pleased with the quality of the images submitted. As last year, we selected five photographers for special spreads of 5 images, along with a photo of themselves and a short biography. This worked very well, and the featured photographers were not necessarily long term members, but anyone who had done interesting work in the past 12 months.

The cover was more of a problem this time. Previously images had been submitted that shouted out Cover, but none did, so I actually ended up using one of my own. It wasn't that there were no superb images, just that they didn't have the spaces for text that covers need, or were too busy to read it clearly.


The object of this exercise is to make a record, not to sell books, although they can be purchased if required. We always buy one and the club always buys one, others do if they wish. But being in it is the main point, and hopefully everyone can feel some satisfaction that they are there for posterity.

Always Carry a Camera

I make a point of always carrying a camera, just to capture anything and everything that catches my eye as we carry on with the minutiae of life. I was in Atherton and just heading for the shop that sells fuses and passed a small alleyway that used t...
