Monthly roundup of club activities during December

6 December - Our annual Match-a-Print competition provided an entertaining evening with much heckling and good humour. Although only half the size of the gentlemen’s team the ladies finished only one point behind. Our thanks to Sue Morley, a past Chairman, for bravely adjudicating the match: she enjoyed the evening and was glad of the opportunity to catch up with those members she had not seen for a while.

13 December - The Christmas party is perhaps one of the club highlights and this year was no exception. Members and partners were treated to mulled wine on arrival followed by a delicious three-course meal. It was a wonderful evening of friendship and fun, with a quiz to boot! The Chairman revealed her Chairman’s Challenge for the rest of the club year: taking photographs in close up. Whatever camera you have and whether or not you own a macro lens, she believes everyone should be able to get a close-up image of their chosen subject.

20 December - An evening trip to Guildford to capture the Christmas lights. We were lucky it was dry and not too chilly and the evening proved a good exercise in practicing low light photography in the company of others.
The results of some of our efforts can be found in the pictures below.

Wildlife through the lens - a presentation by fine art and wildlife photographer Tom Way on 31 January 2019

Within this talk Tom goes into what it takes to be a Wildlife Photographer. Talking about the importance of light, the right angles and the emphasis on trying to compose a sellable image when looking through the lens. Tom describes his adventures over the last few years, and how he has gone from working in a gym to now taking wildlife images around the world and exhibiting them over the UK.

More information can be found at Tom Way’s website: Tom Way Photography
