Club Night Summary #105


In our latest workshop Cat Humphries led the evening with the theme of judging Images.

This was a follow up to our previous workshop of a few weeks ago, where we discussed the merits of Images and what elements separate one from another. Also the qualities circuit judges in Camera Club Competitions look for. Such elements as;

  • Impact and Interest
  • Viewpoint
  • Composition
  • Colour
  • Techniques
  • Manipulation and presentation
  • Landscapes
  • Portraits.

All were discussed as tips for judging, critiquing and self assessing photos. We put all of this knowledge into our latest workshop and Invited our talented membership to submit Images that had not been in competitions at the club before. These entries were then judged by our membership and not an external judge.

Voting on the various Images in advance of the night and then revealing each Image with scores as a normal competition would be presented. The membership offered critique on the Images and the previously voted score was revealed. This process gave a nice Interactive theme to the evening.

It was a really Interesting workshop and gave everyone an Insight into the thinking of the mechanics relating to the difficult task of dividing winning Images from others.

Huge thanks to Cat for her hard work putting together such Insightful workshops which have been really enjoyable.

Congratulations to David Eckland for his excellent overall winning Image ‘Brill windmill’.

Thank you to everyone that entered Images and all that took part in the evening.
