It’s been busy for town camera club
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.
