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 - names like Ken Scott, Kathy Mansfield, Sarah Howard and Mike Wilkes.

Our own Club members will also feature throughout the Programme and we will see images presented by Malcolm Robb, Bill Scott, Rachel Paton, Neil Stewart, Nigel Glover-Wright and myself.

Cash In On Your Passion - Providing Images For Microstock

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

Late blog this week I’m afraid – computer wasn’t well but it’s feeling a lot better now!!

Well – last week’s meeting was jolly informative wasn’t it!  We had a visit from Peter Walmsley LRPS who came to tell us all about selling images on microstock (no- they don’t have to be of tiny things!!).

He took us through the whole process starting with how to prepare our photos for acceptance. Heavens – they’re mighty picky! Not surprisingly everything has to be well in focus. Then there’s composition – as this is mainly a source for publishing we have to make sure that the composition allows for writing to be inserted. And as for grain – well I reckon that most of us enlarge our pics to deal with any noise using some form of luminosity control – but looks as if the moderators there enlarge enormously – and any bit of graininess (is there such a word?) means rejection!! Mind you – what gets through must be absolute perfection (which is good!). Peter illustrated this with some of his images which get accepted and sell and finally looked at a selection of our projected pictures and gave them the moderator treatment!!

A very useful evening – certainly made us look at picture quality in detail!   Thank you Peter for coming along and sharing your expertise with us.
