Club league competition - DIGI 2 - incorporating the Peter peel mono competition

All of a sudden, portraits seem to be back in fashion in club competitions! 

TONY BENNETT won the Peter Peel Trophy with a thought provoking shot of a face full of character.  An outstanding winning photograph.

Steve Collins also presented a couple of really nice candid portraits 

​Wildlife portraits also did well!

At the first meeting of 2019 we asked members to show us some images that had NOT been processed after capture at all, apart from cropping.

The results were really good.  Eight images below ....... (not bad, eh?)

it's all about the pictures!

Make sure you visit us at least once a week to look our latest images and pick up news of anything happening on the Island that might be of interest to photographers, including those of you just visiting the Isle of Wight.

We often get asked by photographers visiting from elsewhere to advise them on the best locations here for various types of photography.  We are always pleased to help if we can.  Go to the Contact Us page and send us a message.  We would like to hear from you.
