Exhibition 2017

On Wednesday September 25th the club held it’s meeting at the Atkins Building where we are currently displaying our annual exhibition. We were able to feature a pop-up studio with our own lights and backdrops and employed the services of Sophie, a professional model that people were queuing up to photograph!
We had a good number of visitors who enjoyed the chance to meet members and talk about the club and it’s activities.

2017 An Audio Visual Experience

Well it was certainly that. After a few minor windows related teething issuets Graham from the Leicester Forest photographic society recovered skillfully and took us on his”Audio Visual Experience”. The presentation included a selection of his digital audio-visual sequences. Aka Pictures set to music along with a few commentaries and sound effects. A wide selection of subjects to suit most tastes.

2017 Interactive Critique

Last night we had an open discussion with emphasis in regard to judging and critical image appraisal based on our 3 part process of “Impact”, “Technique” & “Composition”. It was hosted by Andrzej Jablonski and consisted of a review of members submitted PDI images for the themes of “Transport” or “Nature”. Andy gave some quite insight full comments on how well each image met the 3 criteria and also some minor modifications that could be done to improve them.

Rule Changes for our Flickr Group

We have decided that you must be a current member of the Earl Shilton Camera Club to have images accepted on our Flickr group.  We apologise to those Flickr users who are not members who have taken the trouble to post in this group, and as a consequence, we have removed non members images from the group.  We hope this will encourage all members to post and ask for comments from our members.  We will have a few moderators to accept images.  We are trying to create a group where the whole membership can participate and enjoy without any pressure but also try and help their photography along the way.
