ITS ALL ABOUT THE PICTURES!

​​'Misty Bembridge'  by  Dennis Murphie

We always try to start our season off with a couple of evenings examining technique and looking at outstanding images from other clubs.  The aim is to push all members to think harder about how they make their images.

Kuki Waterstone opened the season off with a superb run-through of the elements that make up good composition, making photographs, not just taking them.

Next up was an audience participation event looking at the Basinsgstoke Camera Club Exhibition DVD showcasing selected images from across the country.  One of our members, Stuie Bennett, had 3 of his images accepted for this prestigious event.

Judges from the mainland have kindly agreed to come travel over to critique our work.   On 29th October, Geoffrey Roberts LBIPP LMPA LNPS will judge a PDI competition for us. 


Print competitions will be contested on 15th October and 12th November, judged by Kevin Sandall and CC


The quickest way to learn how to improve one’s own photography is to listen to impartial experienced judges critiquing our work, which is why our competitions are so popular.
