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.

Next Meeting – Thursday 2nd March – Printed Images Competition

Next Thursday’s meeting is our third print competition of the year. As usual, the subject matter is open, there are two sections, colour and mono, and members can enter up to two images in each competition. There is also the separate Improvers’ League competition.
Please email your titles to Jon at j.orme AT virgin.net by Wednesday. Remember to state whether each title is colour or mono and if the print is for the Improvers’ League.
Our previous competitions have produced a good number of entries which need organising on the evening; if you can get your prints to Jon before then, it does help. His address is on the email Steve has sent to members.
I look forward to seeing on the evening.

Next meeting – Thursday 16th February – Studio Lighting with Paul Sherlock

Our next meeting is devoted to using the Club’s newly bought studio lighting equipment.

Once again Paul will be leading the session, and we can be confident that his expertise will enable all of us to improve our knowledge and technical skills.

The session will begin at 7pm (the Beavers are on half term), do bring your camera and any flash equipment you have.
