Club Night Summary #143

Welcome Back After Easter

We hope everyone had a good Easter break.

This week we have our PDI ‘Landscape’ and ‘Portrait’ trophy competitions, an event that always brings out some excellent Images and gives the judge a difficult time in choosing the ultimate winners of these coveted awards.

It is bound to be an enjoyable night for both authors and audience back in the community centre.

The following week 28th April we have our Croxley camera club open competition. This event was planned to give non members the opportunity to enter Images to be judged and receive valuable feedback on their submitted work. 

Despite extensive local publicity we were not able to attract a large uptake of photographers to take up the challenge. However we do have a number which will come along to the hall for the evening for this event.

With the absence of Croxley revels for the last two years, this Initiative was seen as a possible new member enticement to the club.

It would be great to have a number of ‘seasoned’ members at the meeting to encourage and make the entrants feel comfortable during the evening. Interestingly there is a higher percentage of ladies than men that have entered the competition.

It is envisaged the judging and awards will take place during the first part of the evening and in the second section we will have a couple of Interactive activities. Ant will demonstrate single flash lighting for portraiture and Gordon will set up a still life scene and create ‘painting with light’. Bring along your cameras and tripods to get some great shots.

Just another quick reminder of two Important events;

AGM on the 19th May please put in diary to attend if possible. Anyone who would like to get more Involved in the club. Please let us know of your Interest.

Croxley revels 18th June. We need lots of help on the day to make this a successful event. Please let us know as soon as possible if you are able to get involved in some capacity. After two years without the ‘revels’ let’s make this a great day and let everybody know who we are!

Thanks, see you on Thursday 

Steve 🙂
