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.

Alan Copeland LRPS APAGB

Mix and Match Competition

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

Enter the article hereSo we all gathered in the village hall for the needle match of the season.

Excitement was in the air as the seats filled and we all stared at the two screens and two projectors. Yes – this was it – The Battle Of The Sexes – the much anticipated ‘Mix and Match Competition’!

All quite straightforward really men versus women – and the mere matter of matching images shown on screen. To explain briefly (honest!) – one team puts up an image and the opposing team tries to match it – simples!

The judge for this battle – none other than our esteemed Chairman – Mr Alan Copeland LRPS APAGB. Points awarded for a close match (fewer for a not-so-close match and none for ‘couldn’t find a pic remotely like it so we’ll stick anything on the screen’!) Also points for the quality of images!

The result was, as expected, a weird and wonderful selection of photos accompanied by raucous heckling and ‘suggestions’ from the audience. Never has a judge received so much abuse for his or her findings!!

What a fun evening – and a great way to wind down the season! Many thanks to Joyce and Geoff Storey for organising the event, and to Alan for attempting to impose some sort of law and order to the proceedings! Oh yes – and thanks to all those members who scoured their stores of images for the oddities which lurk in the depths! Brilliant!

And the result of all this?  Well - our women members soundly beat the men – by 87 points to 73! Congrats! -and the basis for a return match sometime in the not-too-distant future methinks!!
