Chairman's Blog

Hi everyone,

 

Just my usual quick note to recap on last nights competition on the theme of Insects, (all creepy crawlies). Initially I had a feeling that entry numbers would small, every pun intended, but how wrong was I. Yes I can hear all your comments even in the safety of my home.

There were many more entries than some of our other themed nights and I have to concur with the judge Rod Fry, who did a really good job judging our images by not following the so called Natural History Rules but entering the Pictorial Image viewpoint which allowed many very interesting images of creepy crawlies without having to run off and buy a usually expensive macro lens.

The overall quality of the pictures was very high and also in some cases very inventive, thinking outside the, stop the jargon Wingrove. Who knew we had the makings of a good natural history section within the club, certainly not me.

Rod Fry did have his work cut out. His comments were accurate and informative with constructive criticism and helpful insights, so thanks Rod and we will meet again I’m sure. If I have any criticism of Rod it would be I felt too many people scoring 12’s but what do I know I’m not a Judge.

Well done to John Wheeley who took first and second place, and well done to all those who entered capturing some smashing pictures in the process.

 

Now just a few reminders.

1. Clubs quiz night at Drakes Cafe in Grenofen this Saturday.

2. Entries for the print competition entitled GOLD must be in at our next meeting on the 12 December

3. Photos required for our exterior competitions, send to photos@tavistockcameraclub.org.uk

4. Ideas for themes for Panel competitions like the one on display last night

 

Finally don’t forget Tommy’s talk at the Wharf.

 

See you all at the next meeting on the 12th and don’t forget to bring your camera for some festive photography
