Kinross Camera Club has some fantastic news to share ….. our club was victorious and came first in the 3-Way Club Competition against St Andrews and Cupar held on 10th February. There were absolutely stunning entries from all three clubs and the judge Terry Hewitt commented on the very high standard of all of the images entered this year. The competition was held via Zoom hosted by St Andrews Photographic Society and was very well attended by members from all three clubs. It was great to catch up with news from members from the local clubs and an enjoyable evening was had by all. Looking forward to next year which will be hosted by Cupar Camera Club and hopefully we will be able to enjoy a meeting face to face in Cupar.
In March the club is looking forward to learning about work flow and ways to organise and store our images. Club member Richard Dibley will explain his own methods and ideas on work flow and it will be an opportunity for members to discuss and chat about their own techniques. These internal speaker evenings are always enjoyable and a great chance for learning and discussion in a relaxed friendly environment.
The second week of March sees our League 3 Competition judged by Douglas May FRPS. Members are invited to enter Colour prints, Mono prints and Projected Digital Images. This is the third of our yearly League competitions and the scores from the previous League competitions are added together to discover our winners for the 2021 – 2022 season. Good luck to everyone who has entered.
This month we are looking forward to a presentation by Still Life photographer Andy Phillips called ‘The Inner Landscape’. This is a presentation of still life images with a difference. Andy says his still life images are illuminated by just carefully controlled natural light and for very little expense too! It is a journey from simple set ups through to more elaborate schemes. Definitely one not to miss.
Our yearly joint meeting with our local Scottish Wildlife Trust group takes place this month. This year our speaker is Wildlife Photographer, author and lecturer David Boag. David has also taught photography to both photographic degree and wildlife illustration students. David has led African wildlife safari trips to Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. We are very much looking forward to hearing about David’s life and listening to his presentation on ‘The World of a Wildlife Photographer’. This presentation spans 35 years of photography and takes us to 5 continents. We are looking forward to joining up with the SWT to enjoy this fascinating and inspirational talk.
If you are interested in photography and would like to find out more about our small and friendly club please drop an email to our secretary who will give you further details.
