Tenby 8 Way Battle

Tenby 8 Way Battle Tenby & District Camera Club, St Florence There was no session in Carmarthen this week as it was hoped that a good number of members would attend the 8 Way Battle being hosted by Tenby. This was the 2nd time Tenby had run their 8 Way Battle and we wanted as many members as possible from Carmarthen to support this event as Tenby always support our Battles with a good turnout. Apart from Carmarthen and Tenby the other clubs participating were Cardigan, Kidwelly, Llanelli, Newquay, Towy Valley and Trostre and with 10 images per club, judge Gareth Martin had quite a volume and variety of images to get through!

His talk tonight was directed at new or intermediate photographers, aiming to build up a photographer’s knowledge of basic to advance compositional techniques. Although geared towards those of us new and intermediate photographers, Gerald gave such a comprehensive and in depth presentation, that I’m sure even the more advanced photographers amongst us would have learned something! Gerald started off by discussing the Compositional Guidelines, that are there to give guidance, but not to necessarily dictate composition. These g

EGM and Tenby Selection

The 2018 - 2019 season started off with an EGM to enable us to just run over a few changes that had been agreed in the AGM in May. Sue welcomed everyone back and gave us a paper copy of the upcoming season (full details of the programme are on the website). Many of us end up disillusioned after competitions and often blame the judges, which Nicky Rhodes had discussed with a judge at the WPF show in Carmarthen in August. To give us some guidance to help us ramp up our scores, Sue had prepared a handout detailing “What Judges Look For”, which is a guideline that all the WPF judges should be working to. Nicky also confirmed that they should not be deducting points for titles or mounting (they c
