Friday 28th February

Having discovered that a number of members are not sure what to do to create panoramic images, we will look at any images more experienced members may have taken and also have a discussion and demo of techniques which can produce a panoramic image.

Acknowledging that this subject would be best reinforced with a practical session in the better weather, we have scheduled a session of practical work in the grounds around our venue on 19th June to be followed by a demo of processing the images after the tea break.


Photography Challenge Topic

In the light of the difficulty posed to some by the 'Panoramic Shots' challenge, a second has been drawn. This is 'Yellow', and both will be critiqued during the session on 28th February.

Please note that for the 'Yellow' challenge, the colour yellow should be dominant in the image. No subject is specified, so anything yellow or a composition featuring yellow objects will satisfy the brief. Please bring images from either or both challenges. The second week of the 'Yellow' challenge will be critiqued the following week as well, so if you are concentrating on panoramic shots, you do not need to do both for 28th.

We consider prints and DPIs for the challenge. Details of camera settings to appear on prints and be available for DPIs.

Alan Townsend Annual Memorial Competition

We held our competition for images taken during 2019 on 17th January 2020. Each entry consisted of three images taken during the year.

Entries were judged anonymously by our guest judge, John Whaler, pictured above presenting the trophy to the winner, John Turner. John was also presented with a trophy to keep.

Joint second were Joyce Bell, Pat Oaks and Lynda Rhodes. The final four image sets are shown here.
