The Wilbrahams’ Photography Group Jan 16th

Photography in the Wilbrahams

Dear All,

I have offered to organise the hall bookings for the Camera Club and remind everyone about future meetings (will drop everyone another email about a week before the next meeting as well).

OUR FIRST 2018 MEETING IS TUESDAY 16TH JANUARY AT 7.30pm. All dates for the Camera Club, and for any other events come to that, can be found via the Wilbrahams website:

where Trish Davis puts on any dates, information and pictures available to her.

If you wish to submit any photos to Chris for discussion at this meeting the topic is ‘NIGHT’ and I’m sure Chris would appreciate your getting any photos to him at least the weekend prior to the meeting.

For those of you that weren’t at the last meeting there were some great photos taken by members including those of fireworks, family members, strangers and dogs, to name just a few. Everyone is very supportive of anyone submitting photos so please do let anyone else that might be interested know this and also that there is even no need to submit photos until you feel able to do so, or that they can just come along and look at some lovely shots. Help is also always available with one member at the last meeting asking how NOT to get long shadows of people when she takes photos in the village hall – suggestions were made and we look forward to hearing whether the advice had an impact on her subsequent photos. We were also able to see some of the photos that won the National Print Championships taken by Cambridge Camera Club members – something to aspire to!
Some people in the club have fancy cameras, others may use their iPhones, some have vast experience and can help those of us new to taking photos, some are purists with their pictures and others love manipulating them; as you can see, anyone is welcome

Hope you are able to attend the next meeting as well as spreading the word. 

Many thanks,
Sue Lambton

Dear All,

For some reason Ian Cumming’s photos never made it to be viewed at the
last meeting so I am sending a link for you to have a look at his
bonfire/firework photos. Even if you couldn’t make the last meeting
you can now have a look at a professional’s take on the subject and
get inspiration for next year!!

Many thanks to Ian for these shots.

Following a lively discussion on September 12th at the group’s first meeting, it was decided that regular meetings about every six weeks would be good, that we should keep to practical photography, and that we would have a “themed” evening on Tuesday 17 October when we would all show some photos which are associated with Autumn. The Meeting Room is booked for that evening from 7:30 – 9:00pm

Martin Gienke and the editorial board of the Warbler and the village website editors are keen to receive any relevant pictures for publication. Is there a budding journalist amongst you who would like to write a report to the Warbler about the group’s activities?

So, it would be good if as many of you as possible (especially if you are coming on the 17th) were to submit some autumn images by email to me. I will resize them ready for projection, and then project them (anonymously!) and discuss them on the evening.

I suggest that you each submit up to ten photos for discussion. Get out your cameras and look for autumn colours and the season of mellow fruitfulness!
Happy snapping!
