Abel and Peter Clark Trophies - Panel Competitions

Seventeen members gathered together on the 14th January for our annual panel competition. For the thirteen members who entered their work, (thirty-one PDI panels and eleven sets of prints), the object was to submit panels of three pictures that together either portray a story or have an obvious connection. By the end of the evening there were to be two overall winners, with the traditional Abel Trophy going to the print winner and the Peter Clark Trophy to the winner of the digital section.

Following the usual welcome and club notices from the chairman, the evening got underway with the eleven print panels. Making a welcome return to our club was Tim West FRPS, our judge for the evening. As each set of prints was placed into the light box by Margaret Cooper, Tim commented constructively on the technical, compositional and story-telling aspects of each picture and, where necessary, he made helpful suggestions for improving the lighting and colour balance of the images within a panel.

Our Next Meeting

Featured Photographer Martin Thomas

Our next meeting will be held at 7.30pm on Monday 28th January when we will hold what is now a popular and regular annual event - a Portraiture Workshop.

This event is a repeat of the very enjoyable workshop held last year when we had a most interesting evening of practical photography with 2 models - a young lady cricketer and a rugby player.

The workshop will again provide 2 studio areas equipped with fabric backgrounds and an array of lighting units. Bob Hoare has arranged for 2 models to be available – final details to be announced shortly.

All members are encouraged to attend - bringing with them their cameras, lenses and tripods.
