Newbury Camera Club was pleased to welcome a new speaker to the club - Peter Crane ARPS.

Peter gave a most informative and interesting talk on street photography.  Club members were treated to wide variety of Peter's images together with extremely helpful hints and tips on how to prepare and take good street photography images.

One of the interesting facts about Peter's techique is, as Peter says on his website

"Street photography tends to be in black & white, however I prefer to work mainly in colour which I believe is harder as colour often ‘distracts’ in images.  My post-processing work is minimal, perhaps straightening, cropping and adjusting contrast, brightness and sharpness etc."

For more details about Peter and his work please visit his website: https://www.petercrane.co.uk/ 

The camera club is also pleased that Peter will be coming back to judge some of our internal competitions in our 2018/2019 season

Congratulations to Rob Carpenter LRPS

In January, Rob Carpenter was awarded the Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society (LRPS). 

This process took around 9 months in total and involved visits to RPS Advisory days together with help and advice from many Club members. 

Presentation of the panel in Bath on the Assessment day was quite stressful but also very rewarding when the result was announced. 

LRPS does not necessarily make a better photographer but is a demonstration of a high personal standard of photographic achievement.

Well done Rob!

In February we are being treated to presentations from 2 of our Members.

 

Firstly:

“An African safari – where, when and what to expect” 
A presentation by Paul and Jenny Bailey, followed by a slide show of Jenny’s wildlife encounters.

 

Secondly:

"Popping out for a stroll"

A presentation by Steven Parker.

(The only clues we can give on this one are the beautiful island of Corsica and one of Europe's toughest long-distance treks)

Looking forward to seeing you for what should be a wonderful evening.

Newbury Camera Club were pleased to host

Leo Rich ARPS, DPAGB, EFIAP/Gold Hon PAGB

Leo, former President of the PAGB and well respected agmonst his peers has been one of the judges used to critique the best images submitted to the Southampton International Exhibition.

On Thursday 8th February Newbury Camera Club members were treated to a presentation called  Idle Rich, sliding into digital, one computer illiterate man’s struggle converting slides to PDI, did I succeed?

Leo provided a really entertaining and informative presentation showing how he progressed and transitioned from taking slides and joined the world of digital photography.  The stories behind the images were fasincatinga and most entertaining.

We look forward to welcoming Leo back for more presentations and also a a judge.
