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.

Monochrome Digital Image Competition

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

Last Wednesday evening was colourless – in the best possible way ‘cos it was the latest of our annual competitions – projected monochrome images. All us photographers like a bit of black and white (or variations thereof) don’t we? Takes us back to our roots of seeing tonal differences. The man in the hot seat was Roger McCallum who’d found his way to us all the way from the wilds of Woodley!

And what did we present for his inspection? Thirty three superb mono images – that’s wot!  As you might expect there were all manner of subjects – all well suited to mono treatment which often brings out the dramatic element in an image. Architecture of all sorts from tall buildings reaching to the sky to dramatic interiors - and small details of buildings too! Then there were landscapes and treescapes (think I’ve just made that one up!) with impressive skies. Then of course there were people – some on beaches or involved in activities lending themselves to monochrome images.

A difficult job for Roger – but he was well up to the job, giving detailed comments on each mixed with his own brand of humour, making the evening superbly entertaining too!

So who got 20s? There were four: ‘Palladian Bridge at Prior Park’ by Stephen Shadbolt; ‘Waterskiing’ by Nigel Farmer and two by Ceri Jones – ‘Reach for the Sky’ and ‘Morning Walk’.

And the top scorers were: in joint third place Nigel Farmer and Tony Bates both with 36 points; in second place Bill Scott with 37 points – and with a perfect score of 40 in first place was Ceri Jones.

But which image was the best in show? It was Ceri’s ‘Reach for the Sky’ – a dramatic upward-pointing shot of tree branches. Congratulations Ceri – and to all the high scorers. Thank you too to all who entered images and of course to Roger for his superb judging. A great evening – now let’s all go out and shoot more mono!
