First Competition of the Season

Our first Quarterly PDI competition was judged by Kirsty Ralfs ARPS, a KCPA Premier Judge and member of Whitstable Photographic Group. Kirsty gave a full critique on all our images and the winner in Group 2 was Lorina Dean with "Five a Day". Second was Rod Giddins with "Blown Away" and Steve Hewitt was third with "About to Pounce". In Group 1 the winner was Ken Butcher with "Gone with the Wind". Second was "Gannett dispute over Fish and in third place was Jean Seddon with Tulips Walmer Castle Gardens.

Dave Mason keeps us spellbound

As an accomplished street photographer, Dave has visited the club before with a previous talk which so impressed us we had to invite him again. We were certainly not disappointed as Dave kept us on the edge of our seats waiting for his next image to reach the screen. There is no doubt Dave has a talent for knowing just when to take the picture but not only that he adds such humour to every shot. He says on his website " I take great pleasure in finding the extraordinary in the ordinary, often documenting the surreal happenings on the city streets", and that is exactly what he does. A fantastic evening and I hope we can have another visit from Dave.

Fun night with Lightroom

Many thanks to Iain Blacklock for a really great talk on Lightroom this evening. So much information to cover which must have been difficult to fit in but Iain managed to incorporate just about everything and made it a fun night too. Everyone learned something new tonight and we were also given the opportunity to download the talk from Iain’s website for free.

The new season starts.....

Our welcome back evening on Monday included a detailed report from Programme Secretary, Laura Drury, who told us about what was coming up in the next few months. An exciting mix of top speakers, competitions and members' evenings. We also were shown a series of images which members had taken during the summer break on various Out and About Evenings. It was good to see some visitors attending the meeting who we hope will go on to join the club.
