January   was   a   busy   month   with   the   2nd  quarterly   digital   image   competition,   then an nteresting talk on “Long Exposure” photography followed by a closely fought inter-club battle gainst Herne Bay Camera Club, who gained those few extra points to be declared winners.

February got off to a flying start with an inspirational talk by award-winning photographer

Robert Canis who showed some stunning images from his tours to Finland and Iceland as

well as the UK.  This was followed by our 3rd quarterly print competition, with 25 entries in the ntermediate and 22 in the Advanced section.  Judge Malcolm Hardie provided a detailed critique of the images, awarding first place in the Intermediate group to Andy Kettle for his photo entitled “Night Time Carnival”, whilst best image in the Advanced group was “Sailing Down the Broads” by David Berger*.   Well done to both for their super black and white images.

We are now planning our away competition against Deal and Whitstable Camera Clubs later in February and looking forward to a talk by Roger Hance entitled “A Photographers Year”.

We meet Mondays at 19.30 hours, Ramsgate Football Club, Kent CT11 0AN. Visit us online
