Next Meeting – Thursday 24th November – PDI competition & “Fashion & Beauty” by Julia Cleaver

On Thursday we have our second PDI competition of the season. The judge will be Julia Cleaver.

In the second session, Julia will also give a presentation on “Fashion and Beauty”.

Members can enter up to two images, which can be on any subject. Once again there will be a section for “Improvers” as well as the “Club League”. Please email your images to Chris at cjgib62 AT gmail.com by Wednesday at the latest. If you can, please resize them, and please state if the images are for the “Improvers’ League”.

Next Meeting – Thursday 10th November

In the first session, Andrew Steel will be giving a presentation on his time spent in Annecy, Chamonix and Mount Blanc.

In the second session we have four 10 minute presentations from four other members. These are all very different aspects of photography so there should be something for everyone.

Next Meeting – Thursday 27th October – Print Competitions

Our next meeting is the first print competition of the season.
All members are invited to enter two images into both the colour and the mono competitions.
There will also be an “Improvers’ League” competition.
Please email the titles of your images to Jon Orme at j.orme AT virgin.net  Don’t forget to state which league you are entering and whether each image is colour or mono.
Please send your titles to Jon by Wednesday. If you can get your prints to Jon’s house before the Thursday evening, that greatly helps smooth running of the competitions in the hall on the night.
We look forward to seeing your print entries!

Next Meeting – Thursday 13th October

The first session will be a presentation by John Whittle on his 24 hours completing a photomarathon in Stockholm.

This should be a fascinating session on this particular style of photography with its demands on skills and stamina!

In the second session Chris Gibbins will be explaining the “whys and hows” of resizing, and some simpler editing skills.

Next Meeting – Thursday 15th September

Thursday’s meeting will start with the 6 x 4 competition.

If you took pictures in the Cowley Road area last June for this, you will need to mount five images sized 6” x 4” or approximately A6 on a sheet of card as a panel. Please do not put your name on the front or back. If you want to enter more than one panel of images, that is fine. All the panels will be on display and everyone will be able to vote for which they think best.

For the rest of the evening we will be making a selection of the Club’s best images for this year’s Rose Bowl Competition.
For newer members this is an inter club competition involving about 30 clubs from Oxfordshire down to NW London. The standard of images is usually high and we want to have a pool of our best work to select from
We will view all these images and everyone will be able to vote for their favourites to form the pool for final selection.
Please bring along a pen/pencil and a sheet of paper.

Beginners’ Sessions

On 22nd September and 6th October, we will be holding a couple of special sessions for beginners or anyone who would like to better understand how to take great photos.

Bring along your camera and join us in the Perry Room at the Methodist Church Hall.

Meetings start at 8pm and finish at around 10.00pm.

We have a nominal meeting fee of £2 (for members) and £4 (non-members) per meeting to include room hire and tea/coffee.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
