Our second print competition of the season was judged by Bob Dennis APAGB CPAGB AFIAP BPE4*. There were about 70 prints in total.

Peter Bainbridge : Photographing Aircraf...

A shot of the photographer’s enclosure at an airshow, bristling with telephoto lenses, showed that member Peter Bainbridge was certainly not alone in wanting to photograph aircraft. Peter’s talk was bristling too, with interesting facts, techniques and super shots. He got us so fascinated with all this that we almost over-ran. This was far from a plane […]

3rd December 2015 Meeting – Our second p

Before the meeting I complimented our secretary, Tom Seaton, on two of his entries and I was delighted that judge Bob Dennis agreed and gave one, “The Swimming Pool is Closed” first place in the Genera Colour section. Although two of our regular entrants were not able to compete this time we still had a […]

Alsager CC v Crewe PS 26 November 2015

Alsager fielded some excellent images, as indeed did we; and it was always likely to be a close thing. In the end Alsager took the charming trophy (a golden SLR) by just three marks. RESULTS. It was a very entertaining evening presided over the affable Daryl Giles CPAGB whose judging was light-hearted, well- balanced and well timed. The […]

19 November 2015 Talk by Paul Hill BPE

What makes a good monochrome print?

This is Peter Hrebien’s photograph of Martin Simpson. It shone out in our last competition for sheer print quality.

You won’t quite see it here because this is small digital […]

Mike Sharples ARPS MPAGB EFIAP BPE4* – 1

Mike showed us his successful competition pictures which featured people in costume at Blists’ Hill, the Black Country Museum, Whitby and various other sites together with landscapes from the Hebrides, the Dingle peninsular and Anglesey. There were shots of intriguing decrepitude too, a derelict cottage that Mike and his colleagues from Smethwick came across. Mike […]

Print 1 2016 – (Front Page 2/11/15)

When we hold a competition the pictures are judged by someone from outside the club, who is, of course, unaware of who has taken them, consequently progress by members in the quality and nature of their work goes unremarked. This week, however, we will be putting that to rights by taking a second look at […]
