Love this Kind of Image

LastThursday we welcomed Paul O'Toole for our second competition night. He described himself as one of Ken Scott's baby judges, and progressed into judging because he felt it was hard to be critical of judges if you weren't prepared to put yourself up there. I think this baby judge has grown up quite a lot, and can now at least call himself a junior judge! The evening was amusing, and gave a lot of food for thought photographically.

The Ordinary made Extraordinary

Roger Crocombe ARPS returned to us to give us a very detailed and well prepared talk on how we should approach any subject that we want to photograph by preparing ourselves in advance in a structured way. He showed us a series of slides showing the procedures which I will not try to repeat here as Roger said that he would make his talk available with slides on our website.

First catch your hare

“First catch your hare” – the famous recipe instruction applies equally well to Nature Photography – be the quarry animal, vegetable or mineral. Our nature photographers travel the world in search of great shots of elusive prey – some even venturing to Norfolk. Last night’s meeting showcased the club’s nature photography with the first half dedicated to the work of Derek Grieve LRPS with the second half of shorter presentations from four others.

An amazing programme

Ray, our vice-chairman, was in charge this evening as Chris is away with his family for a while.

He introduced our guest speaker, Lisa Beaney, who came to judge one of our competitions last season. Lisa hails from Steyning, and is a Wedding Photographer, together with her Husband Phil, and is an award winner in Wedding photography, Fashion and Glamour, and Portrait photography, together with an ARPS with the Royal Photographic Society. According to Ray she is ‘certified’ to instruct in Adobe Lightroom!

Chris starts us off on the right foot

Well here we are again, after what can only be described as a very mixed summer. The first meeting was very well attended and we welcomed six new faces, who we hope will join as members. I would ask them to come to some more meetings before they make their minds up, as the first meeting of the season is hardly typical. New folk are sometimes put off by the sight of big mounted prints. We are a bunch of friendly people who enjoy their photography, but who do not take things too seriously. Photography is to be enjoyed.

The last meeting of the season

The meeting was not very well attended, but we welcomed a new member, David Richardson, who had been a member of the club in the 1990s. I arrived a little sad as I has heard that at least three members were leaving us, but left much happier.

Chairman Chris decided to kick off with the presentation of the cups.They were awarded as follows:
