“Light is Everything”

“Light is Everything”

Last night we had a presentation by Bill Allsopp LRPS LBPPA from Leicestershire entitled “Light is Everything”. This included a PDI presentation that started off looking at the work of the Belgian pictorialist Leonard Missonne and then expanded on his quote “Light glorifies everything. It transforms and ennobles the most  commonplace and ordinary subjects. The object is nothing: light is everything” by showing many different kinds or light and examples of the kinds of images that can be achieved with the eventual outcome that there is no such thing as “Bad Light” you just have to adapt to what your given or wait for something better.

We held our annual Cedars Challenge Trophy. It’s is an interclub competition of 12 prints, open themed,between Broughton Astley PS, Hinckley PSLutterworth PS & Earl Shilton Camera Club .

The 48 images were judged by Hazel Manning ARPS DPAGB BPE3 from Leicester Forest PS who also judged last years competition and again gave some very interesting and constructive comments about each and every image during her critique. It’s good to have a judge who’s comments match their scoring. At the end of the evening however Earl Shilton again emerged victorious with 208 points from Hinckley & District PS who finished in 2nd on 200 from Lutterworth PS who finished in 3rd spot with 196 and 4th Broughton Astley PS with 182.

 

Special mention should goto following who all scored 20 Dave Hunter for “Silver Weed” and John Haddon for “Mating Dark Green Fritillaries” both of Lutterworth PS, I.Chesterman of Hinckley & District PS for “Common Darter” and finally the Judges favourite
