A Few Words From Our Chairman

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 8.00pm 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 Neil Cave who runs Timeline Events, a very successful business staging classic period scenes re-creating some of the iconic images of times gone by. We also have Peter Crane who is an expert on Street Photography and Eddy and Pam Lane who take us to Antarctica in the footsteps of Shackleton.

Many of our own Club members will also feature throughout the season with a wonderful varied selection of presentations and we also offer help and guidance for all photographers at our Practical Photography Group meetings.

It all looks very exciting and is set to further enhance our reputation as one of the leading Camera Clubs in the area.  I hope you will enjoy all there is on offer during 2018-19.

Print Competition No 1

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

Well – there we are – first print competition of the season! Soon be Christmas!

Being the first one there was no set subject – so a good, wide range of genres on show. And who was charged with the unenviable task of allotting scores to these? None other than Caroline Colgate ARPS APAGB – a familiar and welcome judge who hails all the way from the Bracknell Camera Club.

So what was she faced with? As I said – a huge range of subject matter both in monochrome and colour. We had spectacular landscapes all the way from Scotland to Dartmoor; we went to Spain and over the pond to the Grand Canyon; we met wildlife from colourful frogs and African beasts to orchids – phew! Then there were people (including one that hadn’t arrived yet); places and events. But Caroline handled these superbly, giving insightful and helpful comments on each image.

So, you ask – who were the high scorers and winners?

Let’s start with the 20s. In the monochrome section there were four: ‘Sea Posts’ by Tony Bates, ‘Please Let It Be A Boy’ by Tilly Jamieson,; ‘Port Madoc In A Storm’(which was also awarded the star) and ‘Clearing Storm In The Lake District’ – both by Ceri Jones.  Four 20s in the colour section too! They were: ‘Forgotten’ by David Belcher (which was awarded the star); ‘Concentration’ by Bill Scott; ‘Sub Zero Window’ by Dorothy Wood and ‘Summer Poppies’ by Ceri Jones.

The final placings in the monochrome section were:

In third place – Tony Bates scoring 37 points; second came Tilly Jamieson with 38 points ………. and the winner was Ceri Jones with a perfect 40!

In the colour section – Bill Scott scored 37 points; in joint second place were Dorothy Wood and David Belcher – both scoring 38 points (incidentally – David’s a new member!!) and in first place was Ceri Jones with a total of 39 points.

Of course, being the first results - this is how the print ladder stands too!!

What a great evening – congratulations to the winners and high scorers and well done to all who submitted entries – a superb standard set!

Many thanks too to Caroline for superb judging and comments. See you again!
