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!

Do share with your friends or anyone who might be interested!

First Meeting – September 1st

Welcome back to the new season!
We meet at 8pm in the Church Hall.
The first session is open to all. Please bring along up to 6 interesting images you have taken over the summer, resized for the projector on a data stick. Prints are also welcome.
In the second session, we ask members who won a competition last season to show their winning images and say something about how they were taken and processed.
Some members took part in a “studio session” with the Club’s new studio lighting equipment. If anyone would like to show some of their images that would be good and also, we hope this might encourage more members to use the equipment.

Next Meeting – Thursday 16th June – Outdoor Event – Cowley Road

This Thursday evening the Club will be out taking pictures for this competition. For those not familiar with the rules, the idea is to take a panel of five images, printed at 6” x 4” and mounted on a single card. You may enter as many panels of five as you like. The pictures need to be taken in the same area and under similar lighting conditions, hence the challenge is to spot the possible images and to do your best with whatever the weather allows!

The place we have chosen for this is the Cowley Road area in Oxford, and everyone is invited to be there from say 6 until the light fades. If, for whatever reason you cannot make the Thursday, you can still enter by taking your pictures in the same area on an evening a few days either side of the 16th, as long as the weather conditions are similar. There will be good opportunities for street photography and all sorts of architecture. For those going by car, there is a car park behind the Tesco store on the Cowley Road.

The competition itself will take place in September.

Finally, the hall is being used as a polling station for the Euro referendum, so our AGM will now take place on the 30th June.
