A Letter from the Chair

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 - names like Andy Sands, Matt Emmett, Eddy and Pam Lane and Chris Hutchinson.

Many of our own Club members will also feature in the second half of the Programme when we will see the results of my Chairman’s Challenge which involved capturing two images every week throughout 2017.

Digital Competition No 4

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

So there it was – the last of the ladder competitions for this season – Digital Competition No 4 – and no set subject – plenty of scope then!  And some poor soul has to be in the judge of this which will also decide the winner of the entire Digital Ladder competition. So the poor unfortunate happened to be Jeff Lawrence LRPS CPAGB who braved the journey all the way from the far regions of Bracknell to be with us! (no- honestly – we’re lovely and it must be a pleasure to judge our images!!)

Plenty of variety on show here this evening – you name the genre and it was projected in front of us! A hard job for the judge – who rose to the occasion magnificently giving good, detailed comments on each image.

Well, at the end of the judging all of four 20s had been awarded. They were: ‘A Word in Your Ear’ and ‘A Tasty Snack’ – both by Nigel Glover-Wright; ‘Warnscale Beck Buttermere’ (which was also awarded the star) by Ceri Jones and ‘Sheik Zayed Mosque’ by Bill Scott. Well done all!

Then, of course, there were the top placings which were as follows: in joint second place with 38 points were Geoff Storey and Ceri Jones – and in first place was Nigel Glover-Wright with a perfect 40! Brilliant!

And what did this do for the placings on the 2017-18 Digital Ladder?  ………….. 

In third place with a total of 148 points is Stephen Shadbolt

In second place scoring 150 points is Nigel Glover-Wright

And the winner is ………. Ceri Jones with 156 points!

What a good evening this was! Congratulations to all the high scorers and top placings in the evening’s competition ………

And hearty congratulations to Ceri, Nigel and Stephen for top placings in the Ladder!

Oh yes – many thanks to Jeff for his superb judging at this critical point in the year’s digital competitions. See you again!

THE CHAIRMAN’S CHALLENGE - PROJECT 100

By popular demand, we are repeating the project which we embarked on five years ago in 2012.

My challenge is for you to take two photographs every week throughout 2017 with the exception of two free weeks to give you a rest (you decide which weeks you want to miss).

This will result in you having taken a total of 100 images which you will share with your fellow Club members during the first few months of 2018.

The challenge, of course, is motivating yourself to use the camera when, like me, you would not normally consider taking images. It will also stretch your creative abilities in finding an image, perhaps in the middle of winter, and producing a photograph to show at the club.

When we ran this project throughout 2012, we had 16 keen photographers who accepted the challenge and went on to show some fantastic images to the club.

Will we do as well second time around?

Full details will be announced before the end of this calendar year and I will be collecting names of those members who want to accept the Chairman’s Challenge.
