Selsey Camera Club

SCPF Print League Judging Night

Fifteen club members along with two members from Woolston Camera Club attended the third judging round of the Southern Counties Photographic Federation’s Division 6 print league. In this, our eight chosen prints competed for the third time against those of the Woolston and Dorset Light clubs. (Previous judging sessions had been held in those clubs).

The evening began with a warm welcome extended to Paul O’Toole, our judge for the evening, and got underway with each of the prints being placed into the lightbox by Andrew Kendon, followed by constructive criticism by Paul. Over the course of the session, Paul commented upon aspects such as a picture’s composition, along with its sharpness, lighting and colour saturation. Where applicable, Paul also approved of leading lines taking the observer’s eye to the subject of a picture, and in the case of a picture featuring water, he looked for contrast and structure within that part of the picture rather than an over exposed, washed out area.

Our Next Meeting

Featured Photographer Martin Thomas

Our next meeting will be held at 7.30pm on Monday 4th March when we will host the MSW Shield, the annual three-way PDI inter-club competition against the Witterings and Middleton camera clubs.

The venue for this year’s competition is the Exhibition Room at the rear of Selsey Town Hall, High Street. Selsey, PO20 0RB

DPI entries from each club will be displayed in turn and scored by our Judge for the event, David Eastley LRPS. This is normally a very closely fought contest which generates a good deal of good humoured banter from all teams and an early arrival is recommended to ensure that you get a seat with a good view.

All members are strongly encouraged to attend the meeting to support the club and to bring along their promised contributions for the refreshments and where possible a prize for the raffle.
