Monthly roundup of club activities during February 2019

7 February - Our 3rd PDI and mono prints competition was judged by Ken Scott who gave a reasoned critique of the 34 mono and 25 PDI images on display. Congratulations to those whose images scored 10, namely: Norman Price (one mono and one PDI), Angela Karney (one mono) and Ann Smith (two PDIs). Four PDI and two mono images were awarded a score of 9½.

14 February - A number of club members presented a selection of themed images for a panel. This was a successful, relaxed evening when we learned from one another. It did not matter that some themes were not made into a panel - it was more about the thinking that goes into producing a cohesive set of images, not only subject-wise but placing and arrangement, to title or not, etc. Whether mono or colour, dark dramatic lighting on wet streets, elegant architecture, travel, or images taken closer to home, the themes were all interesting and enjoyable, and it was also good to see work from those often quieter members.

21 February - The 4th Colour Print competition included the set subject of having the word ‘cat’ in the title. Although some members thought John Warren, the judge for the evening, was tough in his marking generally, he still gave a score of 10 to seven images and 9½ to two others. Congratulations to: Swales Parry (x2 images), Norman Price, Chris Flood, Angela Karney, John Warbrick and Mike Harrison all scoring a 10.

23 February - Angel Karney organised a well-attended visit to Guildford Cathedral with eleven of us spending the morning wandering at will with our cameras and tripods. The modern architectural style of the cathedral provided excellent photographic opportunities with good lighting and bright interior, not often found in many of our more historic cathedrals.

Next presentation 21 March 2019 - Travelogue - Hawaii Islands - guest speaker Jan Roberts (Travel and Wildlife Camerawork)

Although further from a mainland than the Galapagos, Hawaii has many more introduced species, due to the global wind and sea patterns, which have brought more visitors to the area over the centuries. Her talk takes you to three islands of the group: the administrative capitol island of Oahu; Hawaii (the Big Island) which is the furthest east; and Kauai which is the furthest west and also known as the ‘real Hawaii’. She will attempt to show the country, its people, culture, flora and fauna.
