Annual Awards Night

The last meeting of the season was a very relaxed and informal affair, with the giving of all our awards and trophies for both 2016/17 and 2017/18. Because the awards are now presented at the end of each season, it has been decided to give them for the “current" years, rather than for previous, as has been the process until now. To make the transition, some of the images from last and this season where taken into account. So, without further ado, here are the winners of the following trophies: Sue began the evening by presenting the entire club with the Newquay Battle trophy and congratulated everyone for this triumph! Well done all! The President’s award was presented by John Evans, our Pr

Black & White - Judged Internally

There were 47 images entered for this evening’s final competition for the 2017/18 season, which were themed Black & White and judged internally by members on the night. There was a good range of subjects to make this an interesting evening of judging. As usual with internal competitions we were only marking our top 4, not giving every image a score and then ranking them from 1 being our most favourite down to our 4th favourite. Sue and Jeff then converting these into scores, so that the image with the highest score came first etc. Here are the results. 1st Being Overlooked - Mavis Evans scoring 18 2nd Due North - Nikki McAllister Freeman scoring 14 3rd Window to another dimension - Sue Porte

Leigh Woolford - A Search for Focus

Leigh Woolford - A Search for FocusMay 17, 2018 Maria Pearce Our final speaker this year was Leigh Woolford, whose passion for photography started from a young age, influenced by his father, who was also a photographer. Leigh’s father combined his club photography with lots of family snaps, especially when on holiday. He was full of support for Leigh following in his footsteps and bought him his first camera, an Instamatic 233, which he took with him on a trip to Bristol Zoo and won himself his first photographic competition. Leigh had recently opened up a “Box” that he had found at his parent’s house, which contained some photos of his childhood and some of his father’s club photographs, wh

Round 4 PDI Competition - Judge: Jenny Hibbert

This was our last externally judged PDI competition, so the final opportunity to add to our results table! Our judge, Jenny Hibbert, from Bridgend Camera Club, has a particular interest in wildlife photography, but that didn’t stop her enjoying the other genre in our work. We entered a good variety of subjects, from still-life to wildlife and the quality was high. She gave the images well considered remarks, including advice for the authors, and marked them out of 20. 5 photos were held back for further consideration and high scores. As the evening progressed, we also learned a little about Jenny’s photography, with occasional anecdotes on her travels and encounters with bears and birds! If
