Club night summary – 28th February

Rod Bird gave a great presentation with his talk ‘What photos mean’ The presentation Included showing Images to draw out the meaning and perhaps the reason why the photography may have taken the Image.

He also Invited the members to debate on a number of occasions what the photography may have seen before taking the photograph.

The topic, exploring the psychology and emotion of creating Images, gave a very thought provoking presentation, which made a very enjoyable evening.

A knowledge pool for CCC members to share hints and tips,but also a place to ask for help or ideas with existing or up coming projects.

Maybe you need help finding a location?  Or struggling with colour management?  Maybe you need a steer with editing?  Or maybe you want a little bit of feedback on an image?

Perhaps you saw a really helpful video on YouTube and thought others might find it useful?  Well here’s the place the ask, share and get the help you need! 😊

Club night summary – 14th February

This weeks topic was ‘Photography unplugged’ a charitable event organised between the club and Rickmansworth School photography students involving one of our youngest club members Beth Christie.  A competition was organised where Members were requested to submit PDI Images with minimum adjustment as close as ‘straight out of camera’as possible.

To support the project members donated money towards the event to help enable a School photography trip. In return three students (Beth, Jade and Tom) judged the event on the night giving excellent critique on the entries and choosing the ultimate winners.

Congratulations to Richard and Denise on the night for their winning Images.

The successful event raised £100 from our generous members towards the School project.
