Presenting

 

 

How to Produce an AV & a presentation of some of his own work

 

 

Tonight we are lucky to have Ian Bateman (current President of the WCPF) visiting us from Exmouth Photo Group.  Ian will present the practicalities and things you need to know about producing an effective AV (audio visual) presentation.  Given Ian's success as you can see above by the long string of hard to achieve awards after his name, he knows a lot about this!  We are sure to all learn something which we can apply to our own AVs.

Additionally Ian will show us some of his own work so we are sure to be well entertained.

 

Visitors are welcome to attend and there will be a charge of 3.00 which includes a cuppa and a biscuit. 

 

 

 

Tuesday 17th September 2019 Ken Holland ARPS DPAGB presenting

 

"Looking at Photographs -  Appraising Photographs and Judging Photographs"

 

 

Ken is an Honorary Life Member of his local Dawlish and Teignmouth Camera Club; Ken lectures and judges throughout the Western Counties Photographic Federation (WCPF) as well as Southern England and Wales.  Ken is a member of the team that trains new judges in the WCPF so why not come along and learn a little of what judges are considering when appraising your image/s?  

 

Visitors are very welcome and we are sure will enjoy Ken's presentation - entry just 3 

 

 

 

Prospective New Members Welcome!

 

Whether you've been thinking about it sometime or you have a new interest in photography, please come and visit our club.  We pride ourselves on being the friendliest club in the region and you will be most welcome.  You can attend for two weeks without having to formally join.  We do charge 2.50 but that does include a nice cuppa and biscuit and a worthwhile raffle ticket.

 

Unlike other clubs we are a growing club with a programme that is strongly influenced by the members and we are sure you would enjoy any evenings with us. 

 

Why not come along as the evenings grow darker and enjoy many fantastic images and photographic discussions.  Last season 688 images were entered by members into our competitions with a mixture of both print and digitally projected images (DPI) covering every subject and genre imaginable.

 

We look forward to seeing you. 

 

 

3rd September 2019 - The New Season Has Arrived

 

It was great to see the returning members and we all had a lot to say to each other following the summer recess.  Our Chair Lesley briefed the membership on progress and minor rule changes for the forthcoming season and then handed over to our External Competition Secretary Matt who restated the aims and procedures of the exciting new Photographic alliance (The Alliance) with Ivybridge Camera Club, Kingsbridge Camera Club and Plymouth and District Camera Club.  In the break a sub committee had felt that our initial entry should be derived from the last 2 years WCPF DPIC entries (Western Counties Photographic Federation, Digitally Projected Image Compeititon).  These were then voted on by all members present in the 2nd half of the evening.

 

 

 

Club Member Matt Curtin achieves success in BBC Radio Devon Photographic Competition

 

Last summer BBC Radio Devon ran a competition to find 20 great images that celebrate where we live.  They wanted to celebrate our county and the talented photographers who capture so many amazing images of life here in Devon. The winning images are to be blown up and used to cover the BBC broadcast vehicles which are seen by thousands of people across the region.  

 

Matt's image of Plymouth Hoe (displayed below) was one of the winning images.

 

Well done Matt and many congratulations from all your friends at the club

 

All 20 images can be viewed at the National Park Visitor Centre, Princetown until the 17th April.  They are open 7 days a week, 10-5pm.

Plymstock Camera Club at the Plymstock Fair 2018

 

 

Saturday September 1st saw Plymstock Camera Club committee and members setting up a fantastic print and rolling digital display of images at the annual Plymstock Fair which had not taken place last year.  Many visitors to the fair took time to view and discuss the images with members that were present.  The display looked great.  One ex-member who visited stated the standard had indeed gone up!

 

 

 

The above image shows a few of the visitors clearly very interested in what was on display. 

 

Watch out in the local South Hams Gazette as one of their contributing photographers took a press photo of a few of the memebers attending.
