Cam­era Club It has been a busy time the club, who won a friendly match-an-im­age com­pe­ti­tion against Mother­well Cam­era Club on April 5. But the most im­por­tant events have been the judg­ing of dig­i­tal im­ages and prints for the club’s an­nual ex­hi­bi­tion. The judg­ing for dig­i­tal im­ages took place on April 12 and the win­ners were Chris­tine Chan­dler with “I’m Watch­ing” in the be­gin­ners sec­tion and Bob McLach­lan with “Sunset over Ar­ran” in the ad­vanced sec­tion. On April 19, the judg­ing for the printed im­age was held and the win­ners were as fol­lows: Be­gin­ners Print Pic­to­rial – “La Rue Char­mante” by Rose­mary Lewis; Be­gin­ners Print Por­trait – “In­no­cent” by Chris­tine Chan­dler; Ad­vanced Print Pic­to­rial – “The Old Town” by David Spinks; Ad­vanced Print Por­trait – “Fo­cussing the mind” by Joyce Man­son; Ad­vanced Print Mono­chrome – “Rush Hour” by David Spinks. The club’s Premier Award given to the best im­age across both dig­i­tal im­ages and prints went to David Spinks for “The Old Town”, an im­age taken in the old town of Car­cas­sonne in south­ern France. Next up was the in­di­vid­ual chal­lenge on April 26. This is where each mem­ber can select at ran­dom a sub­ject to pho­to­graph over the year and present 10 of the best im­ages from their ef­forts. This was a fun even­ing with sub­jects rang­ing from land­scapes to food and ships to flow­ers, fol­lowed by a club stu­dio night on May 3.
