A brand new concept

Once again our Chairman has come up with something new which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone present. Ever since he joined the Committee a few years ago, Chris has come up with new ideas which were new to our Camera club

The evening started with a few parish notices. Liz was thanked for managing and setting up the display in the Library and again this week for setting up a great display of our prints in the square at Storrington. We hope that all will have a look as it is a brilliant way of letting the people know what we get up to.

The last meeting in 2015

Sadly, the final meeting in 2015 was poorly attended, as we had a very nice evening.

I arrived to put out too many chairs, as it turned out, to find Daisy delivering bags full of goodies forus to eat and drink. Unfortunately she was feeling unwell (she was chauffeured by her Son who has just passed his test) and so she retired homeward. ( We have since learned that she is now feeling better.) So Anne then took charge of things and heated up the mulled wine and set out all the platters of fine grub.

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.
