We were pleased to extend a ward welcome Tracy Hughes CPAGB LRPS, KCPA Senior Vice President, as our guest for our end of season awards evening.

The evening started with an informal buffet, with a selection of dishes prepared provided by members. Following this, Tracey gave a talk, outlining her photographic journey, showing a selection of her work, in particular her very emotive portraiture.

Report on the Annual Exhibition competition

On Friday 12th May 17, Ray Bridges LRPS CPAGB ADPS BPE3* of Maidstone and Tenterden Camera Clubs judged our Annual Exhibition, the final competition of this season when we put our best of the season on display. Because of the very high quality of all images entered, Ray had to be quite critical when commenting, looking for reasons to choose between the good and the very good, pointing out areas where he would have done things differently had he been the photographer. He was looking for creativity, mood, atmosphere and a story, questioning what was happening, and how people were involved, and always stressing that when choosing from such strong images it was sometimes down to the judges own personal preference. When commenting upon Stephen Creek’s winning image he said it had been captured at just the right moment, was full of atmosphere, and was just a superb picture – one of the best he had ever seen of animal behaviour. Overall, he said, it was a wonderful collection of work.
