It’s been busy for town cam­era club

Loughborough Echo - - SHEPSHED SCENE -

THE Christ­mas break for the mem­bers of Shep­shed and Dis­trict Cam­era Club starts in a cou­ple of weeks time af­ter a busy sec­ond part of the au­tumn term.

Re­cently two of the clubs mem­bers, chair­man Alan Har­ris and sec­re­tary Chris Coxon, each pre­sented an evening, both of which were thor­oughly en­joyed by the mem­bers.

For the first time the club vis­ited the club at Key­worth for a com­pe­ti­tion in which each club en­tered 25 im­ages and the judge, Phil Howcroft, awarded each image a mark up to 20 points. Whilst not win­ning over­all it turned out to be a very en­ter­tain­ing event and with a chance for Shep­shed’s mem­bers to meet other pho­tog­ra­phers from the lo­cal area.

The lo­cal pro­fes­sional wildlife pho­tog­ra­pher Des Ong en­ter­tained the club and mem­bers of the gen­eral pub­lic with an ex­cel­lent pre­sen­ta­tion of some of his im­ages taken as far afield as Ice­land, Nor­way, Scot­land, Eng­land, Mada­gas­car and In­done­sia in mid Novem­ber, many of which can be found on his web­site at http:// www.des­ong.co.uk/

The fi­nal league com­pe­ti­tion of the year took place in early Novem­ber and the Open Sub­ject class for prints was won by Chris Coxon with his print en­ti­tled ‘Per­haps’.

The class for pro­jected im­ages, the sub­ject be­ing ‘ Trans­port/ In­dus­trial’ was won by Alan Har­ris with his image en­ti­tled ‘Steam and Metal’. The over­all win­ners of the Com­pe­ti­tion League will be an­nounced at the an­nual din­ner tak­ing place later this month and then meet­ings recom­mence on Jan­uary 6, at the coun­cil of­fices in Charn­wood Road.
