Photographic Society: April 2018 Report
The Adderbury Deddington and District Photographic Society held their May meeting at the Cartwright Hotel, Aynho on 2nd May. The main evening event was a review of the images which had been on display in the 2017 Annual Exhibition. Not all members had been able to visit the annual exhibition of members work. Therefore, it was decided to have a review of all the exhibited prints in a projected version, this gave everyone another opportunity to see their colleagues work. The subjects displayed ranged through landscapes, portraits, wildlife, travel subjects and some abstract images. Those present explained what had led them to select those particular images for exhibition as their pictures came up on the screen. The meeting was well attended, and members shared their views on the pictures as they were projected, often giving constructive and helpful critique. The club has now been in existence for seven years, and it was generally felt that the quality of members work has improved significantly and steadily over those years, and that the 2017 exhibition display had been a good showcase, and example of the societies’ work to the local community.
After a short break the meeting continued with the usual “monthly challenge”. This month the subject was “Black and White Landscape”. This produced many very good images, mostly converted from colour photographs, but some originally conceived in monochrome by the author. The subject of “Black and White” images caused many to consider the particular charm of monochrome photography which covered the full range of tones. Once again there was plenty of advice and constructive opinion contributed from the members.
Our next meeting will be at 7:30pm on 6th June in the Cartwright Hotel, Aynho. The subject will be a presentation by Andreas Klatt ARPS, titled “The Costa Rica Book”. The monthly challenge for June is “anonymous”. Members are encouraged to anonymously submit a photograph which is different to their usual style. This will challenge the other members present to try to identify the author of the picture. All are most welcome to attend.
