Club Meeting 03.04.14

We had a very busy night last night, firstly we were able to see the entries for the ‘Black & White’ Competition which was postponed from an earlier meeting owing to the illness of Libby Smith the judge.
There was a good standard of images from members and they were discussed and the marks given by Libby were announced. Jennifer Davidson was the overall winner gaining 38 marks out of 40.
We then moved onto the ‘Set Subject’ Comp. ‘Night Photography’ – we finally ended up with a good entry of very interesting and varied entries from members and these were discussed and members voted on the final selection.
Stuart McMillan was the winner with his excellent image ‘Gate, Steven Beard came second with ‘Never Mind the Bollards’ and Simon Wilkinson was third with a fascinating image called ‘Emergency lights on North Bridge’. Well done to them and to all who participated.
On Thursday 17th April – we have the visit to the Butterfly Farm –Please note that the time is 6pm to 8pm (not as previously advise in my note of last week) There is good advice from Iain Hall/Mike Clark – put your camera into a plastic bag and seal it up – wait for the condensation to clear from the outside of the bag and then you can use your camera, thus saving condensation getting inside the camera which can cause damage. Put your camera in the car not the boot and try to get it ‘warmed up’. (a hot water bottle might work!)
We would like more members to participate in competitions next season – I suggest that you now set up a separate file on your computer based on the competitions and slot in ‘potentials’ as you go, plus any previous images that you have not previously used in competitions.
Based on the following:-
MCC potential 2014-15
Digital Images – 18.09.14
Coloured Prints – 30.10.14
Human Portrait Prints – 13.11.14
Set Subject Prints – 15.01.15
Black & White prints – 12.02.15
Set Subject Projected -19.03.15
We could run workshops following our ‘closed season’ – on a Thursday night – on any subject so long as there is one person who takes full responsibility. It will run under the MCC and members only for insurance purposes. I must be advised fully and I will book the room. Any expenses incurred must be met by those present – e.g. room hire approx £6 per hour.
Next week we have the annual AGM, followed by the presentation of trophies to the members who have done best in the club competitions. Please make an effort to come along and also join in the social interaction afterwards with some cakes etc.
