Club News

Eastbourne CC through the years.

I went to tonight's meeting expecting a talk about Eastbourne town and wondering what could possibly be of interest there. I soon found out.

The answer came when our speaker, John Staples, the President of Eastbourne Camera Club, put the title of his talk on the screen; we were going to see a selection of work from the permanent Collection of the club’s pictures collected by the speaker from various sources over a very long span of time.

A Good Result

Anne Nagel kindly picked me up in her car and we arrived at the Tangmere Centre Hall in good time. We went inside and were immediately told by a very nice Lady that we would not be charged entry fee, but would we please buy some raffle tickets instead. Inside the hall we found another cheerful lady selling raffle tickets with a big smile on her face. It transpired that they must have sold of good number of tickets as the Hall was pretty full, so Chichester camera club who were running the event must have done quite well we hope.

Landscape Photography – whatever the weather

Tony Worobiec made a very welcome return to Storrington CC to encourage us with the notion “Landscape Photography – whatever the weather”. How appropriate as I sit in the warm writing this watching the rain lashing down outside – but it is a bank holiday after all.

4th Competition

This eagerly awaited competition was postponed from 1st March due to snow.

It was good to welcome back Carole Speight ARPS APAGB, a member of Chichester Camera Club, and local resident in Billingshurst with an interest in landscape photography in various forms, both at home and abroad.

Whistlestop tour

Originally an underwater videographer, Peter found the 100kg excess baggage charges with his equipment difficult, so changed to photography “topside”. He travels the globe searching for that one image in his head. We were taken on a whistle-stop tour from sharks in a tightly packed defensive sardine bait ball, to crocodiles in the Okavango delta, through farmed wild species such as wolf and bobcat in America, to the Arctic for bears and the salmon run, then back home to Pete’s Hampshire Hide Hire business.

Altering perfectly good pictures

Vice Chairman Janet was in charge this evening, as we are training her up for the next two seasons when she takes the Chair. Paul had the dreaded ‘lergy’, so why didn’t you take the meeting as joint Chairman I hear you say. I take the Committee meetings and the AGM and generally chivvy people behind the scenes!

Another wonderful talk from an amazingly talented lady

Last night we had a talk from yet another remarkable lady photographerm Viveca Koh FRPS. She is also an amazing artist and has combined her two talents to produce unique and spectacular pictures.

Viveca started her talk by showing us that her photography started at a very early age using her Mother’s Kodak Brownie Box camera, which she still has in her possession. (As a matter of completely uninteresting fact, the same thing exactly happened to me, except that I take extremely ordinary photographs!).

Third competition

A crackingstart to the competitions of 2018 as Paul Hayward welcomed Ken Scott our judge for the night, member of Steyning camera club and long standing friend to this club. There was an air of expectation together with hope of a good night of helpful comment, critical, discerning assessment and good humour – we were not disappointed.

First off 28 prints with an open subject, which proved to be wide ranging and interesting.

The first meeting of 2018

A very Happy New Year to one and all.

I really should not be writing this report as this evenings activity was not for me. Why, I hear you cry? Simple, I do not ‘muck about’ with my images apart from cropping, sharpening, levels, highlights and shadows and clarity.

I do not use layers and am not artistic and therefore I try to take photographs of what I see before me, mainly birds and landscapes.

In a club like ours, you are never going to please all of the people all of the time, like life really.

Seeing out 2017

Well here we are again, 5am, brain working overtime you have got to write a report tomorrow so as you are now fully awake get on with it.

We had a committee meeting a week ago at my house, (running the committee meetings is about the only useful thing I do as joint Chairman), and the Christmas party was discussed. Our brilliant Secretary Daisy volunteered to get the food and drink again, bless her, and David said he would produce a quiz and Liz said she would come up with a picture quiz again.
