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.

Upcoming events and meetings at Whitchurch Hill Camera Club

ARCHITECTURAL IMAGE MAKING

Darrell Godliman presents a selection of his best architectural images arranged in the chronological order of the buildings. The talk includes a wide range of photographic styles, techniques etc and there's several step-by-step sequences showing his most used techniques. A lot of the images have been taken on Darrell's travels so his presentation should have a wider interest than the genre might imply.

Abstracts, Patterns and Art in Your Eyes

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

Now isn’t it lovely to have evenings when we have to exercise those little grey cells!

We had one of those when Damon Guy (now why didn’t he come at the beginning of November!!!) arrived with his presentation ‘Abstracts, Patterns and Art in Your Eyes’ Did exactly what it said on the tin too!

Abstracts is something a lot of us are interested in exploring (creative types as we are!) and Damon took us through the building blocks to create such images. Looking at types of abstract art and photography and where suitable subjects can be found is key to forming ideas. So we were taken on a tour what to look for. Always good to have examples, we were shown an abundance of these by Damon. Now we can look around us with increased knowledge of what we are actually looking for - such as fine detail within, say, a rusting piece of metal – or perhaps just part of a scene or landscape.

This was an excellent and inspiring evening – now we look forward to a plethora of creative, abstract images – and how about this for a future competition subject eh??

Thank you, Damon, – we look forward to seeing you again!
