Roundup of club activities during January 2020
9 January - The first meeting of the new year was a critique and workshop. Members brought along up to 3 PDIs and/or prints for critique by other members in a non-competitive atmosphere.
16 January - Steve Kingswell ARPS, (a member of the SPA Judges sub-committee) judged our third open Colour Print competition. A trainee judge from Godalming also attended as an observer. Steve gave a comprehensive critique on all the images. As several members produced mainly nature images, at the Club’s request, the judge critiqued these in accordance with nature image guidelines and not as open competition subjects. His marks were widespread including four 10s and several 9s and 9.5s.
17 January - There was a good turnout for the street photography outing to London led by Bev Pegram. After alighting the tube at Blackfriars, we crossed the Millenium Bridge and made our way to the 10th floor observation area of the Tate Modern on the South Bank. It was a good time to capture the cityscape as dusk was approaching. For additional inspiration we saw a small exhibition of night photos taken in Tokyo by the Japanese photographer Naoya Hatakeyama. We crossed over the river via Southwark Bridge, past Cannon Street station and into the City, finishing near the Lloyds building to take night time photographs of a cluster of major iconic modern buildings.
23 January - Our friendly competition with Ludshott CC was close-run in the first half with Cranleigh winning by one point. We gave way to Ludshott over the Nature section in the second half which they won with some truly excellent images. The judge, Ken Scott, gave an excellent critique, spreading the marks with a very keen eye. Well done to Angela Karney, Mike Harrison and Chris Flood scoring 9.5, 9.5 and 10 respectively in the Open section and to Peter Jillians and John Warbrick each scoring 9.5 in the Nature half of the competition.
30 January - Simon Van-Orden AFIAP judged the 3rd round Monochrome prints and PDI competitions. He gave a comprehensive critique on 32 PDIs and 33 mono prints and, in accordance with SPA guidelines, awarded a full range of marks including several 10s.
