Members Evening – January 4th 2022

Our first meeting of the new year provided members with the opportunity to share some images and discuss photographic matters of interest. The topical theme of “Christmas” was chosen which lends itself to many different situations and interpretations. But firstly we viewed the 20 images that had been selected to represent the club in a forthcoming battle with Swindon Photographic Society and Highworth Camera Club in mid-January.

Then  Adam shared a portfolio of images taken at various locations including his lounge, Cirencester, Edinburgh Christmas market, RWB and Blenheim festive lights display. Many interpretations were evident from Christmas decorations, festively attired pets and street scenes to abstract images of lights viewed through a rainy bus window.

Peter then showed some images taken over the Christmas period during a visit to south west Cornwall featuring some land and sea scapes without a single piece of tinsel in sight.

We concluded the evening by looking at some Open images submitted to a RPS comperition a few years ago.
