Monthly roundup of club activities during April 2019

A relatively short month for club activities due to the Easter break.

4 April - We held a practical table top evening when members photographed various objects placed on display. Members could then arrange the objects and lighting as they wished and this generated a lot of discussion. It will be interesting to see the results of their creative efforts at the penultimate club meeting on 6 June.

11 April - Rob Bonfield of Woking PC judged our fifth and final Open Colour Print competition of the season. Rob, a new judge to the club, gave explanations for all his decisions and he certainly had a definite eye on sharpness. He congratulated the club on the high standard of the 42 entries and awarded a score of 10 to three of the images and 9½ to five others.

25 April - David Smith LRPS critiqued the 60 images (35 prints and 25 PDIs) entered in our annual Reg Mullard flora and fauna competition. See below for more details of the winning entries.
