AGM – Thursday 22nd June

The Club AGM will take place on Thursday 22nd June.

This is an important meeting, giving all members to chance to comment on the year just past and help shape next year’s events. As usual we will need to elect members to the Committee. Most members have a specific role, none of them too onerous, and the Committee itself meets about 5 times a year.

You may be aware that Manuela will be returning to Germany this summer and leaving the Club, we are all sorry to be saying goodbye to her. All the other members of the Committee are willing to stay on, if required. Equally some are happy to step down if other Club members would like to offer their skills and time.

If you feel that you would like to help shape the running of the Club and are interested in joining the Committee, please contact Steve Oakes in advance of the meeting for further information.

Next Meeting – Thursday 25th May – PDI Competition on the theme “Photos that evoke an emotion”

The first session will be our final PDI competition of the year – You are invited to enter up to two images, colour and/or mono on the theme chosen by our judge, Kevin Day. He has chosen the theme “Photos that evoke an emotion.”

Please email your resized images to Chris at cjgib62 AT gmail.com  by Wednesday. If your images are for the Improvers’ League, please let Chris know.

In the second session Kevin will be giving a presentation titled “A day in the life of a family.”


Next Meeting – April 27th – Members’ Evening

Two members will be presenting to the Club on Thursday.

Firstly Dave Buckland, with some HDR images of Abingdon, and then after the break, Marilyn Farr with images of western Australia.

It should be a very enjoyable evening.

Next Meeting – April 13th – Mix and Match

In early May we have our annual Mix and Match competition with Wantage and Witney Camera Clubs. This is always a really fun evening, and last year we didn’t come third! For that meeting we need 50 images to put up against those from those two clubs.
The purpose of our meeting on Thursday is to have fun, but also to gather a large number of images from which to make that selection. On Thursday we will be divided into two teams and in the first session each team will select their best 50 images from those you bring along. So, please bring on a data stick a set of your best recent images, taken in the last two years. 6 to 10 (or more) images would give each team a good basis from which to select.
In the second session we have the competition and Shelagh will have the difficult task of judging whether images match on any criterion, no matter how spurious! It should be a fun evening.
A longer term aim is also to have a good set of images that can form the basis of our Rose Bowl Competition next year, so please don’t hold back from bringing along your best work.

Next Meeting – Thursday 30th March – Three on a theme competition

Members can enter up to two sets of images in each of the print and PDI sections.

Each set of three should have a common theme and will be displayed side by side, so please label your images left, centre or right.

With prints this should be on the back with the title and your name as usual.

With PDIs you need to let Chris Gibbins know how  you want them ordered. Chris will use software to project each image on its own and then as the set of three. For this reason he will need your images earlier than usual. Please email your images to Chris by Tuesday at the latest. His address is cjgib62 AT  gmail.com

Please send your print titles to Jon by Wednesday. His email address is j.orme AT virgin.net

Next Meeting – Thursday 16th March – Street Photography with Dave Mason

This Thursday’s meeting is our annual event when we invite a well known professional to give us a presentation of his work and skills.
Dave Mason has developed a reputation for interesting and engaging street photography, you might like to have a look at his website http://davemasonimages.com/ to get a feel for his style.
It should be a really good evening.
