We are sorry but Dr Tom Peck, who was to talk on March 5th, has had to cancel his visit.
The replacement event will be announced ASAP
The closing date for Round Four of our Seasonal Points competition is almost upon us.
The theme for this competition is ‘Shapes’.
Please get your images in by midnight tomorrow and bring your prints along to the meeting tomorrow night.
We are looking forward to another good turn out following our last successful competition so please get those images in now!
Snowdrops Photo Opportunity
If you are looking for snowdrops to photograph I can suggest Moggerhanger Park. It’s just 10 minutes drive east (A603) from Bedford, free entry, car park 1 minute from the wood, more than enough snowdrops to photograph and plenty of light through the trees.
A few I took today https://flic.kr/s/aHsm8X8YGk
Our next seasonal points competition takes place on Tuesday 5th February. The theme is ‘open’ so enter up to 2 PDIs and 1 print or 2 prints and 1 PDI on any subject you like.
Just to remind you the closing date is Tuesday next, 29th January, at midnight. Please bring along your prints to the evening meeting and have your PDIs for both competitions submitted into photoentry.
The following seasonal points competition takes place on 26th February with a theme of ‘shapes’ so get out and find some unique and fascinating images to enter by 19th February.
We are looking forward to seeing a good number of entries in each competition.
Report from the Cambridge Interclub Digital Competition 19th Jan 2019
Bedford Camera Club recently entered the Cambridge Interclub Digital Competition.
32 clubs entered this competition which consisted of 5 themed rounds for which each club had to enter 1 image
Glyn Dewis, a professional portrait and Photoshop trainer, gave two interesting talks to our members, the last one a couple of years ago. Recently he has been working on a World War II series and among many others, met and photographed Ted Owens, 95 years old, D Day Veteran, 41 Commando hero. Story here.
Last night, 8th Jan, the club enjoyed a very interesting and entertaining talk, Compose Yourself, presented by Jonathan Vaines, on photographic composition.
In two hours Jonathan covered a lot of ground. The talk was lavishly (I just mistyped that last word and the spell checker almost had me change it to lasciviously, hmmm, maybe not) illustrated with numerous examples from his and Sue’s many award winning pictures plus some new photographs taken especially for this talk.
I am sure we all left with a greater understanding of this aspect, a hunger to learn more, and a few new jokes.
Happy New Year to one and all
We should all begin 2019 with the resolution to get out more and take lots of photographs in the coming year.
Your next opportunity to share your images is the Architects’ Association Trophy competition which is being held on Tuesday 15th January.
This means you have only until Tuesday next, 8th January, to find those images you have been saving and get them uploaded onto photoentry.
Let’s have a good entry for the first competition of the year and set the tone for the rest of the season.
