This Friday’s Meeting
Last week’s main subject was presentation of photographs for competitions. Now, very opportunely, we shall have a reminder of what judges will be looking for. Boxes of prints are circulated each year by the WCPF, our parent body. We shall divide into groups, discuss the prints and try to decide how highly a judge would rate them, and why. And don’t forget – the hand-in for the first of this season’s competitions is only a week away now….
All Geoff Eynon’s friends will be delighted to hear that he is at last home, still in some pain and of course feeling very weak after more than a month in hospital. He will need further treatment, and fears he may not be able to come to the Club for some time, but we can be sure he‘s watching our doings online. Love to you and Dot from us all, Geoff – we’re thinking of you!
The Bath Walkabout Portrait Challenge
Mick Yates (now a Club member) very kindly led a walkshop in Bath in August, during which he challenged members to approach strangers and ask to take 2 portraits, one engaging with the camera and one looking aside. Here are the results, and his comments:
The winners were Andrew Washington and John Bishop. There were many excellent photographs, from all concerned. In the end, I opted for these as both
- had a sense of place, rather than being either classical, almost studio portraits or too far away
- had a story to tell
- were clearly in a series, in pose, style and setting
- were nicely processed and balanced.
