A Letter from the Chair

Alan Copeland, WHCC chairmanThank you for visiting our website. Here you will find full details of our Programme, a large selection of images from our members as well as a weekly blog report of our meetings. We meet at Whitchurch-on-Thames Village Hall every Wednesday evening at 8.00 pm from September to June and additional Practical Group Meetings take place monthly on Thursday evenings.

This season’s Programme includes our usual regular competitions for colour prints, monochrome prints and digital projected images and we also take part in a number of competitions against other Camera Clubs in the Chilterns Association.

In addition to this, I have booked some top level speakers who are experts in their field of photography and we will also enjoy presentations from a number of our own members covering many aspects of modern photography.

I am pleased to confirm that the monthly Practical Photography Group meetings are back again.  The dates are shown in the Programme and the subjects covered will be notified to members a week or two prior to the meeting.

You don’t have to be an expert to join our club. Just look through the Programme and come along and meet us at our next meeting – I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Mostly Landscapes

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

What a superb – and dare I say it – inspirational (there – I’ve said it so I’ll say it again – INSPIRATIONAL) evening we had last Wednesday in the company of Linda Bembridge with her presentation “Mostly Landscapes”.

Yes - these were landscapes but not as we might expect ‘cos Linda has that unique ability to pick out the smaller, more interesting details from the overall subject. She also works exclusively in prints – so no projected images this evening – and that’s because the whole presentation is important to her – the size of the print, the mount and the positioning of the image within the mount.

No bitingly pin-sharp images either as Linda’s style is distinctly fine art. She carefully doesn’t use small apertures to create front to back depth of field but creates a “soft” image with colours blending beautifully – often almost creating a haze. And not only landscapes – wildlife images too! Again a focus on those small, easily missed details which make such good photographs.

Did I say it was a great evening? I reckon we all thought so!

Thank you Linda for sharing your superb work with us. We look forward to seeing you again in the not-too-distant future!

In the meantime, check out her website: http://www.lindasharpphotography.com/
