Monthly roundup of club activities during January 2019
10 January - Ruari Cummings ARPS gave a comprehensive and well-researched audio visual talk on The Hebridean Island Dream, concentrating mainly on the islands of Colonsay and Oransay. Covering the topography of the islands, sea and sand, weather, places of interest and the lives of five particular islanders, each sequence was set to music and explored in some detail the beauty and way of island life. Ruari immersed us in his subject and was able to convey a sense of the tranquillity which may be found there. A most enjoyable and professionally produced evening and one which will be remembered for a long time.
Some images from his talk ("Along the sand", "Charismatic Kiloran" and "A round with Keith"), copyright of Ruari Cumming and reproduced with permission, are shown below.
17 January - A workshop and critique evening, which provided members with a golden opportunity to have their photographs informally but constructively critiqued by fellow members and to receive advice on not only where but also how an image could be improved, especially if intended for use in competition.
24 January - Graham Johnston judged our third colour print competition and gave a reasoned critique of the 44 images and awarded a score of ten to four of them. Congratulations to: Chris Flood for two of the images and to Swales Parry and Anne Ingram. Four other images were awarded a score of 9½.
31 January - Unfortunately the presentation Wildlife through the lens by Tom Way had to be postponed due to bad weather. However, he has kindly agreed to re-schedule his talk to 23 May 2019. (See the latest club programme for the changes.)
