Selecting 25 championship prints and digital images is no easy task but the membership rose to the challenge on Tuesday night by presenting an exceptional array of images and then proceeding to narrow the field by picking their favourites. It's now down to the selection committee to make the final choice.
A big thank you is due to all of the members who put forward prints and digital images on a wide variety of subjects: landscapes, portraits, nature, architecture and abstract. Anybody who wants to join a vibrant photography club like Whitchurch would be able to experience a wide range of photographic styles and subjects together with a willing mentor to help them on the way.
Moving forward it is clear that the society will have to focus some of its attention on improving the presentation of our digital images. Members who want to work on this area should speak to Chris or Libby who will be organising some weekend workshops in the near future.
What next? The selection committee will choose the final 50 images in print and digital to go forward to the competition which takes place on 28th April at the Civic Centre, Braunstone, Leicester.
In the meantime the Midphot Exhibition opened its doors on Wednesday March 19th at the Old Schoolhouse, Churchbridge, Oldbury; this runs until Sunday March 28th and it is well worth a visit to see some inspirational photography.
Closer to Home Whitchurch Photographic Society has an exhibition at the Heritage Centre in Whitchurch; it is open weekdays 10:00 to 16:00 and Saturday 10:00 to 13:00. Note that the centre is closed on Wednesday and Sunday.
Next Tuesday night, 25th March the Whitchurch Photographic Society plays host to Mark Wilbrey who will be explaining some of his commercial work and opening it up for critique by the members. Based on previous experience of his entertaining style this is a night not to be missed.
