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.

AN INTRODUCTION TO PRESS PHOTOGRAPHY

Cliff Hide presents an interactive session which aims to prepare the audience for when they encounter a newsworthy event. It covers what picture editors want, equipment and workflow, legal and ethical considerations and concludes with the stories behind a number of real-life published images and how much they sold for.

Mosques and Pagodas

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

So on 14 November we gathered in the village hall for a presentation by one of our club members – the aptly named Bill Scott. And where did he take us? Well – the answer to that was in the title ‘Mosques and Pagodas’ and, as they say – it did just what it said on the tin!

Bill started the journey in the UAE with wonderful images of mosque architecture. Not only the photographs either – for he gave us interesting background facts.

Then it was a further journey to the far east and its myriad temples and pagodas.  Again, superb images showing them in their settings – some beautifully cared for whilst others were starting to look a little worse for wear! (the pagodas that is – not the images!)

This was a thoroughly fascinating and enjoyable evening with great images and interesting facts.

Thank you Bill!  We look forward to your next presentation (they’re always good!).
