Club Report - "An evening with Mel and Sue"

Philip Hinton writes:

Last week we had the pleasure of a double bill for our final presentation of the this season.  Melanie Chalk ARPS DPAGB and Chair of Folkestone Camera Club and our own Sue Chapman ARPS CPAGB who is also a member of Folkestone Camera Club, and both are members of the Dynamic Range Group.  They began the evening by stating that girls like to have fun and kicked of with a short quiz pairing the audience into teams of two, then showing twenty images and asking quickfire observational questions.  After they gave a joint presentation of a visit to Talliston House, a unique property in Essex, showing many of the unusual rooms in detail and how they dealt with the difficult lighting conditions.  After the break Melanie gave a short audio visual display, part of her ARPS submission, followed by Sue with a short travelogue of her recent trip to Iceland.  It was a most enjoyable way to round off the season.

On Saturday Mike Routley, Gordon Chapman and Graeme Andrews volunteered to man the clubs stall at the Artigras Festival in Park Mall selling prints donated by the members this raised funds for the club and the Creative Collective Gallery.  A big thank you to them for helping out.

On Friday 27th May its the Awards night supper with special guest Tracy Hughs from Parkwood Camera Club.  Members and invited guests only, and as this is the last meeting of the season we will break for the summer and meet up again in early September, details on the website.
