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.

Hunting The Northern Lights

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

So to start April off we went on a virtual trip to Norway in the company of Stan Hill. The title of his presentation was ‘Hunting the Northern Lights’ which gives you a bit of a clue as to the aim of his journey doesn’t it!

So this was done on one of the ships belonging to Hurtigruten – a ferry line that takes its passengers all up the Norwegian coast and into the fjords (other cruise lines are available – but only this one winds its way through the islands!)

Stan’s trip was made in early spring – so it seems it was a bit on the cold side to say the least! Not cold enough to stop him enjoying life on deck though – even sampling the joys of the Jacuzzi!!!

So we saw stunning images of the Norwegian coast – particularly the islands and the fjords with sheer cliffs dropping vertically into the sea – the ship virtually brushing their sides!  Beautiful images of the coastal towns and villages too – almost tumbling into the sea!

And did he see the Northern Lights? Yes, he did – and to prove it we saw his photographs with the mysterious green light waving its way through the dark Norwegian skies.

A superb evening - enjoyed by all. Great images and commentary. Thanks for sharing your images and experiences with us Stan!

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.
