A Letter from the Chair

Thank 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 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 - names like Andy Sands, Matt Emmett, Eddy and Pam Lane and Chris Hutchinson.

Many of our own Club members will also feature in the second half of the Programme when we will see the results of my Chairman’s Challenge which involved capturing two images every week throughout 2017.

Flowers Of The Altai Mountains

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

So on 7th March the entire club was sent to Siberia! Well – don’t take that too literally – because in fact we were taken on a virtual visit to the Altai Mountains in Southern Siberia by Barbara Lyddiatt. None of your wind- blown icy wastes then – the trip she made was in the spring – and it was apparently very warm!

Barbara described the journey to get there – for some inexplicable reason flying to Vienna then on to Moscow and finally on to The Altai mountains. From there she and her husband trekked with guides into the mountains particularly to see the local flora (apparently not too much fauna around!). Her images showed the mountains covered in colourful wild flowers which Barbara captured on film and on paper. She also brought along albums she’d made detailing the various plants. We also saw their en route accommodation – pretty basic but apparently comfortable enough!

Certainly not what I was expecting when the word Siberia was mentioned – it really is a beautiful area – so thank you to Barbara for sharing your images and experiences with us! It was a lovely evening which we all enjoyed. Oh – and a mention for her husband who not only appeared in photographs but was also credited with at least one one (if I remember rightly)!

By popular demand, we are repeating the project which we embarked on five years ago in 2012.

My challenge is for you to take two photographs every week throughout 2017 with the exception of two free weeks to give you a rest (you decide which weeks you want to miss).

This will result in you having taken a total of 100 images which you will share with your fellow Club members during the first few months of 2018.

The challenge, of course, is motivating yourself to use the camera when, like me, you would not normally consider taking images. It will also stretch your creative abilities in finding an image, perhaps in the middle of winter, and producing a photograph to show at the club.

When we ran this project throughout 2012, we had 16 keen photographers who accepted the challenge and went on to show some fantastic images to the club.

Will we do as well second time around?

Full details will be announced before the end of this calendar year and I will be collecting names of those members who want to accept the Chairman’s Challenge.
