A Letter from the Chair
Once again, I am pleased to bid you Welcome to our Camera Club, one of the brightest and friendliest Camera Clubs in the South of England. No matter what your interest or experience I guarantee that your photographic skills will improve after just a few meetings at our club.
This season’s Programme includes our usual regular competitions for colour prints, monochrome prints and digital projected images and we are repeating our special Monochrome Digital Image competition which was so successful last year.
In addition, we have a Practical Photography Group which meets once a month and this will cover many aspects of digital imaging. In addition, there are a number of studio photography sessions with models.
This year, our Programme includes the images taken by a number of our Club members who took up the Chairman’s Challenge last season - Project 100. This required two images to be taken every week over a period of 52 weeks - quite an undertaking. Sixteen members agreed to take part and their images will be shown over 4 evenings in the second half of the season.
We also have the very best speakers and judges together with a number of high profile guest speakers including Ken Scott, Mike Lane, David Boag, Mike Wilkes and Ruari Cumming.
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

Project 100 (final evening)
posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings
Already! The last of the four groups showing their images for the Chairman’s Challenge to take 100 photographs throughout 2012!
This week the victims – sorry – participants - were Tara Taylor, Ray Lewis, Eric Needs and Trevor King.
As I have said in previous blogs, the great thing about these evenings has been the personal nature of these images (well – not too personal!). As a result we saw lovely images of the families involved including children and grand children. So nice to see good images of children too - considering the understandable restrictions we have in that field!
This week we also had two AV presentations which provided a good variation in the viewing experience. During the evening we saw a superb range of subject matter – and great quality images ranging from landscapes and the built environment to the natural world; from creatures great and small to people imaged in both informal and formal situations (including wedding and studio photography).
This has been a great project – challenging but (dare I say it) fun to do and superbly entertaining for all to view. Having struggled to find two images per week, though, I have great respect for those involved in the 365 project!! Do this again, please, Mr. Chairman – we’re ready to take up the challenge once more!
