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 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 Tom Way, Ian Nash, Ruari Cumming and Mike Wilkes.

Our own Club members will also feature throughout the Programme and we will see images presented by Bill Scott, Rachel Paton, David Dare, Tony Bates, John Sexton, Neil Stewart and Nigel Glover-Wright.

We will also be running our second Project 100 throughout 2017 which gives all club members the opportunity to take two images every week and show them at club meetings during the first half of 2018. You can find further details below.

Image Critique And Discussion Evening

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

Last Wednesday was a fascinating evening wasn’t it!

This was the interactive session when we all had the chance to be photographic judges. Several brave souls submitted images – several being carefully chosen by their authors as not being completely perfect – so that we could discuss amongst ourselves how to improve them! So we looked at composition, straightness of horizons and/or verticals and then made suggestions such as ‘Why not get rid of that intrusive branch (or plant or even tree)?’ (does anyone other than me feel a little guilty when cloning out people??). We went on to discuss lighting, colour, tones etc. And in this session the photographer, of course, was able to join in the discussion – novel idea eh – author’s right of reply!!

A really useful evening for making us all look carefully at our images don’t you think?  Many thanks to all those willing to put their heads (and photos) on the block!

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.
