Internal Club Competition

It's time to sort out your best images and get them ready for our internal club competitions. The dates are on our Programme page. Remember to get them in on time to Paul. First up is an open competition.

Glasgow Gallery of Photography - Seascapes

It seems our members are keeping busy. Congratulations are due for Lachlan Fraser whose image, Gale approaching Luskentyre, was exhibited at the Glasgow Gallery of Photography in their Seascapes Exhibition. A beautifully moody seascape image.

Club member wins Silver at Wyvern International Salon

Salons are basically photographic competitions open to all. Most of these accept around 25% of the entered images into their exhibitions so it is quite an achievement to have images accepted never mind be in the hunt for an award. To win one of the major awards is something else altogether. Our member, Meyrick Griffith-Jones, has recently enjoyed success at the Wyvern International 2020 where he had 3 images accepted and came away with a Silver award in the Landscape Mono class for "Kirkstone pass the struggle" . Our heartiest congratulations to Meyrick.

Wincanton Club outdoor meetings

A number of us have got together, at a distance, to take photographs locally. We have had very successful evenings at Kington Magna and most recently on Whitesheet Hill above Mere. Keep an eye out for e-mails and notification of when people are going out.

Royal Photographic Society videos

The Royal Photographic Society (RPS) have been producing a number of videos recently that are free to non-members. Some of these were originally live interactive events, for which pre-registration was necessary, but are now available on YouTube. I have added a link to our Links page under the YouTube Vloggers section but include a direct link below. Royal Photographic Society (RPS) videos
The topics are many and various. Definitely worth a look.

YouTube video of competition image selection by Ross McKelvey

I came across this video link and think club members will find it interesting. Ross McKelvey videos
Ross McKelvey, an accomplished photographer and judge, shows some top images and gives his comments on each as he reduces the selection to his top 10. I have added a general link to his YouTube site in our Links page.
