Now that the season is underway... Print E-mail
Written by Ully Jorimann   

The season is now in full flow and we have already had a colourful mix of club nights with a variety of talks, hands-on events and competitions. I hope there has been something for everybody tp enjoy. I vividly remember the beautiful landscapes of the Western Isles and Viveca Koh's stark urban images.

We also had a successful annual exhibition in the Marlowes, thanks to the hard work by the members who volunteered to help with the logistics and man the stand. Hopefully we have managed to attract new interest from the local community.

Well done to all members who participated and did well in the external competitions recently - it just confirms what the judges are telling us - that the standard of our photography is very high.

Welcome to all new members who have joined since the beginning of the season - I hope club membership will help you get more out of your photographic activities and meet lots of likeminded people.

More interesting events are coming up - the ever popular niche work evening next week and how to become a strobist with the help of Bernie Raffe in December. Christmas is also not so far away now - I hope you don't find this thought overly scary. But at least it's an opportunity to hope for photography related gifts and get that gadget you have wanted for a while...

Results from NW Fed competition. Round 2 and 3 Print E-mail
Written by Cathy Stamp   
on 3rd of December the second heat of the NW Fed competition was held at Field End. The judge was Chris Sargeant. The scores on the night was Wycombe and Hemel scored 174 and Field End scored 165. We also got two of the four stars awarded on the night for facing a fragile future by Sophie Saunders and John betjeman at St Pancras by John Humphrey. On 4th of December the third heat of the NW Fed competition was held at Wycombe. The judge was Stan McCartin. The scores on the night was Hemel won with184, Wycombe second with 179 and Field End third with 170. We also got two of the four stars awarded for belvedere dawn by John Humphrey and time for tea by Sophie Saunders. Over the three heats this means the WE won with 571, Wycombe second with 567 and Field End third with 552. This is a great result for the club and in all the time that I have been running the external competitions we have never got to the semi final. Our semi final is being held on 20th January at Ealing and Hampshire house photographic society and it would be great if some of our member would come and support the club on the night. Cathy
