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 8.00 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. We will be learning about the development of mirrorless cameras, the copyright laws affecting photographers, the creation of abstract art images, creative photography and architectural image making to name just a few. In addition, we will be transported to many exotic locations as the season progresses and we will be viewing some of the finest Natural History photography currently available.

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 2019-20.

Digital Competition No 1

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

On Wednesday 9th October – sheer excitement (well excitement anyway) as this was the first of our ladder competitions for the season. A goodly crowd assembled in the village hall for Digital Competition No 1. As always with the first and last comps in any season – this was open – so no set subject. These are great ‘cos we get to see such a wide variety of superb and creative images. The man in the hot seat for the evening (ie the judge) – Steven Galvin LRPS who came all the way from the Marlow Camera Club (don’t think he came by river though!).

And what a great selection of images he was faced with! Over 50 entries for him to critique and award points to! There was of course a really wide variety of subjects – everything from landscapes and natural history to portraits and still life. Steven did a superb job – each image receiving detailed and helpful comments with scores between 14 and 20. To add to the tension he held several back – each of these scoring 19 or 20. He was quite happy to discuss images too – very refreshing!

Okay – who won then?? I’m not telling you – but if you visit our web page: http://www.whitchurchhillcameraclub.co.uk/ and then look up competition results you’ll find out!!

So well done to all the high scorers and the overall winner – and thanks to all who entered, giving us such a great evening!

And of course – thank you Steven for not only judging but for giving such helpful and insightful comments. See you again!
