1st print competition

Report by Marjorie Burge

At our meeting on Wednesday 31st October, we were delighted to welcome Glyn Bareham LRPS CPAGB, a member of Invicta Camera Club and of Seaford Camera Club, and a KCPA Premier Judge, to judge our first League Print Competition of the season. Glyn has been a good friend for many years and is always welcome at APS. Even with just over eighty entries, Glyn gave time and attention to each individual image, commenting generously on the skills of the photographers. He was happy to judge ‘the image placed before him’, and not overly bothered with dark and light areas, but commented that ‘all good photographs need good lighting’.  The quality in all divisions was extremely high. Our photographers had given a lot of thought and time when choosing their entries, and their titles, and this was an amazing start to the season. Glyn said it was extremely difficult to have to choose between such varied and excellent images.

Next Friday, 9th November, our first item will be a quick Special General Meeting to approve the end of year accounts, and this will be followed by a Club evening presentation by George Pearson ARPS, recounting his recent adventures with his camera in Romania. Visitors always welcome.

We meet every Friday at Givaudan Sports and Social Club, Kennington Road, Ashford TN24 0LT starting at 7.30, with coffee and bar facilities. We are a very friendly club with photographers of all levels; tuition is given at workshops for members and on club outings members can team up to gain experience.
