9th June: Virtual Meeting – led by Julia Wainwright MPAGB ARPS

This week’s meeting comprised a session exploring ideas to inspire and more information/tips for our Faceless Self Portrait competition and the results of  “A Different Take” .

A Different Take:  One group of five brave members each submitted two images for processing by a group of ‘processors’ who each edited two images;  in another twist, a few images were processed by two processors.   The results were reviewed by all at the meeting when the ‘before’ and after images were shown and discussed.  It was a very informative and successful exercise from everyone’s point of view.

Next week we have a talk by Polina Plotnikova FRPS EFIAP – “Starting from a blank canvas” and we’re all very much looking forward to it.

Have a good week, stay safe and well.

2nd June: Virtual Club Meeting – led by Julia Wainwright MPAGB ARPS

Many thanks to Julia for running last night’s virtual meeting at which she revealed our June competition challenge – Faceless Self Portraits.

We are thoroughly enjoying the series of four-weekly programmes and last night was no exception.  We discussed and critiqued some images together, voices heard and opinions shared – easier for some to express their views in a virtual meeting where there are no barriers – backs of heads, rows of chairs!

The evening ended with a discussion about programme ideas for the coming months – even without a crystal ball to hand – we are looking forward with optimism.

Finally, a message from Field End Photographic Society:-

Your members are invited to visit our online 2020 exhibition and vote for their two favourite images via the survey link on the final page of the exhibition.

 In the meantime, stay safe.


26th May: Online Challenge #2 – Triptych Competition judged by Pat Couder CPAGB, BPE1*

In our virtual world we are delighted that so many people are embracing our competition challenges and last night was no exception;  we had a bumper entry.  Many thanks to Pat Coulder, South London Photographic Society,  who judged the competition ‘live’ and gave each triptych considered and helpful comments before announcing the cliffhanger results.

Congratulations go to Dave Martin who won with his stunning “Tulips Triptych”.  “Heron Triptych by Judith Gimber was second and Julia Wainwright’s “Those Big Blue Eyes” third.  Highly commended were “Allium” by Trevor Alexandar, “Dandelion Triptych” by Judith and “Out of Season” by Judy Buckley-Sharp.


Thanks to everyone who entered into the spirit of the competition and produced such imaginative and creative work – we may be locked down but our minds and spirit are free!

Special thanks to Pat Couder for her excellent judging and for making the evening so enjoyable.

All the images may be seen on our Facebook page.

We look forward to the next challenge to be announced shortly…………..

In the meantime,  safe and well.
