I made a big effort to enter some of the better exhibitions, and surprised myself by being accepted in a few – the best possible morale boost. [24 acceptances among the above photos; details with the full size images]. I felt (and still do) that it was important to visit the exhibitions to compare my prints against the others under display conditions; sometimes I thought I'd done well, but other times I felt lucky to be there. The other important stimulus for me in the early '70s was joining the Royal Photographic Society and submitting prints for my Associateship – there's a separate RPS Associateship page about this.
