23rd March: Talk on the Art of Composite Photography by Sharon & Robert Prenton Jones

What a fantastic talk we had last night by Robert and Sharon – fantastic in the true sense of the word as we were taken through the extraordinary worlds both create through compositing their artistic images.

They were generous with their thought processes, how to achieve creative effects in camera and in photoshop,  information and useful tips that can be applied across any genre of photography.  Robert’s passion for creating images with hidden light sources, inspired by Rembrandt, Vermeer etc. and Sharon’s passion for myths and legends made for a truly inspiring and quite magical evening.

Many thanks again to them both.

21st March: CACC Championship Day – Chilterns Hundred Exhibition and Projected Championship

This year the Chiltern Association of Camera Clubs interclub Projected Championship and individual Chilterns Hundred Exhibition were pre-judged by Judith Parry DPAGB AFIAP HonPAGB (MCPF), Roger Parry ARPS MPAGB EFIAP HonPAGB (MCPF), Tim Morland ARPS (SPA) and the results presented online via zoom.  We came ninth in the Championship which was won resoundingly by Oxford Photographic Society – many congratulations to them and to Watford and Amersham for their respective second and third place.    But we are celebrating and congratulating Julia Wainwright who won the Chilterns Hundred Exhibition Gold Medal with “Coyote in the Snow”.  Many congratulations Julia, well deserved and well worth lying in the snow in minus-something-silly-below freezing!  Congratulations too to John Draper, Judith Gimber and Avril Candler who each scored 25 (out of 30) for their entries.
