2022 February

We begin the first Thursday in February with another popular evening of Members Pictures.  All our members are encouraged to have a look through the photos they have taken over the last couple of months and choose two of their best shots to submit. We then all enjoy a slideshow of these images and many of our more experienced members kindly offer positive advice and tips on how the image can be improved. This is always a popular evening and many of the images seen go on to be entered in club competitions.

On February 9th Kinross Camera Club takes part in the annual 3 – Way competition with St Andrews Photographic Society and Cupar Camera Club. This is an enjoyable evening where each club submits 15 Projected Digital Images for an external judge to critique and score. A friendly competition which gives us a chance to see the work of other local clubs. Great sportsmanship of course but each club always having its eye on that trophy.

The second Thursday sees photographer Andy S Hayes ARPS EFIAP/g DPAGB PPSA from Laurencekirk joining us via a Zoom meeting to share with us a powerpoint presentation of his images of Aircraft and collections of photographs taken at Airshows. This will be a popular evening as we have a number of members who have an interest in this subject.

Our annual 4 On A Board Competition takes place on the 17th February. Four related photographs mounted on a board on any theme. This is a fun and entertaining evening where the images submitted are judged by members.

Our final meeting in February we will welcome photographer Erica Oram CPAGB AFIAP BPE3 to present her Zoom talk “Seeing Opportunity” This talk is about making the most of limited time for photography by ‘seeing’ opportunity and by being a little creative both in camera and through editing. Many of us live busy lives and struggle to find time for our photography. Erica will give us ideas and advice on how to get the best of our photography when limited for time.

If you would like to give our club a try and see if it is for you please drop an email to our secretary who will give you further details.
