A Letter from the Chair

Alan Copeland, WHCC chairmanThe major event this season must be the re-opening of Whitchurch Bridge.  The closure affected us very badly last year but I hope that, now we are again accessible to members south of the Thames, we shall see membership numbers increasing back to the dizzy heights we reached a couple of years ago.

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.

Alan Copeland, Chairman

How To Create A Digital AV Sequence

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

Two club meetings in one week! Wow! There’s a treat!

So we all gathered together once more at the village hall (still getting used to the novelty of crossing the bridge!) for an evening of learning about audio-visual production.

And who better to lead the evening I ask myself (or anybody else for that matter) but the master himself – Ian Bateman FRPS!

Ian is probably the acknowledged expert in AV work and has exhibited his work internationally!  

He took us through each stage of producing a sequence using Pictures To Exe (other programs are available!) which a number of club members use. He demonstrated using the latest version which has full sound editing capabilities on the timeline.

Entertaining and informative – that’s how I would describe the evening – and judging by members’ comments – that’s what they thought too!

Now all we’ve got to do is get down to some producing – after all there’s the annual AV competition coming up on 16th December (be here sooner than you think too!) – so happy synchronicity to you all – and many thanks to Ian for such a superb evening. We look forward to seeing you again sometime!

PS: don’t forget that our esteemed chairman is leading a session in using Audacity for adding sound to AV in the not – too – distant future!!
