Our best place ever?

Yesterday afternoon seven members of SCC went to Burgess Hill for the Sussex Federation Print competition.

Ken Scott was in charge and ran the whole event like clockwork. Crawley CC assisted the Federation officials on the day before, and on the day itself, providing the refreshments amongst other jobs. Ken is firstly a very dedicated family man and secondly he is ‘Mr Sussex Photography’.

Another tough competition

On Monday, a group of us went to the Southdown Trophy at Steyning CC’s usual venue.

The well-run competition was soon under way, and it was a complete mixture of the images from the five competing clubs, so no round-by-round tallies were available.

Our turn to host a competition.

This evening we had the last round of the Southern Fed.’s  PI competition ( we are in league 7). The Southern Fed. is largely based to the west of us. We joined it years ago to get our club insurance.

Prior to this evening we were lying 2nd , one mark behind Sandhurst.

The Judge for tonight’s competition was David Eastley LRPS who we have had as a judge before at Storrington.

Fourth Competition

Judge Mike Davison ARPS was warmly welcomed back by our chair Janet Brown.

Mike a member of Chichester Camera Club, formerly a member of this club, now returning as a judge, so poacher turned game keeper!

There were 22 prints attracting a total of twelve, 18s and above, so well done.

A wide range of very interesting pictures.

Our speaker tonight was Andrew Mills who trained as an artist but then became a professional photographer. He is now retired and he judges Camera Club competitions amongst other things, like travelling. He started by telling us that he was not about to tell us how to take photographs as we all know how to do that, but he emphasised that good pictures would not necessarily please camera club judge. Interesting, because I once attended an RPS workshop to advise on entering a panel for one of their distinctions.

A look back at some early photographic history

Snow was forecast this evening and had I not have had the job of writing this report, I might have stayed at home in the warm, however, I am very glad that I did not as Bill Brooks LRPS from Bognor CC came to give us a very interesting talk about photo books and early Lady photographers. A light covering of the white stuff was on the ground as we arrived actually.
