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.

Click on this map to view a fully-interactive Google map of our locationHave a look at the Programme on the website.  Here you will find links to the websites of our visiting speakers which will enable you to have a preview of their work and find out a little background detail before their presentation.

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

Print Competition No 2

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

The second print comp of the season – and the subject – “A Beatles Song” – and there are over 200 to choose from - so a good selection then!  Our judge for the evening – all the way from High Wycombe – “Aussie” Allan Thomson.

As expected there was a fair variety in the prints – and only a few were repeated! With the validity of subject carefully checked by the print comp team – let the judging commence! Allan certainly delved deep into each image looking at and commenting on its photographic merits. Particularly where he felt Photoshop could have been used, in his opinion, more effectively to enhance colour and detail (whilst commenting less on the suitability of the image to the subject). We were treated to some great images though – and creative interpretations of the theme!

And who got the coveted 20s? In the monochrome section there were two: “Happiness is a warm gun” by Nigel Farmer and “The Long and Winding Road” by Ceri Jones”. In the colour section there were four! “I feel Fine” by John Sexton, “Here There and Everywhere” by Ivor Cowley, and two from Ceri – “Here Comes The Sun” and “Flying” (which also got a star!). Well done all!

The final top positions were as follows.  In monochrome, Nigel Fenner came third with 35 points, in joint second place were Tilly Jamieson and Ceri Jones with 36 points, and in first place was Nigel Farmer with 39 points. In the colour section John Sexton came third with 37 points, Ivor Cowley was second with 39, and with a perfect 40 Ceri Jones came first!

A great evening – congratulations to all who took part – and especially to our high scorers!
