Photographic Society: Club Night March 2019
It was all change for those attending Club Night on Wednesday, 6th March, as the booked presenter was unable to attend. After some quick thinking on the part of the Committee, a diverse programme was devised which ensured a lively evening.
Chairman, John Prentice welcomed new and old members and, with the upcoming April AGM in mind, went on to briefly outline the roles and responsibilities of the Committee for the benefit of the newcomers.
The first quarter of the evening was taken up with the topic, ‘It’s your club: Tell us what we can do more?’ Three groups were formed, with the object of brainstorming what improvements could be made, how to implement them, and how these would benefit the club as a whole. This proved to be fruitful. Many thoughtful ideas and constructive suggestions were put forward and noted by each of the group leaders for further discussion.
Keeping to the same groups, the next quarter of the evening was to ‘Discuss a Print/Speed Meet’. Each committee member moved between the groups showing a print they had brought for discussion and exchange of comments and techniques – a good opportunity for newbies and oldies to interact with each other.
Two slideshows followed: one of glowing images taken by members at a sunrise photoshoot in Blenheim Park, led earlier this month by Jim Muller, and narrated by Khatija Barday-Wood, and the other was a YouTube video on Refraction Photography, accompanied by a pdf called ‘Globalise’, detailing Crystal Ball Photography, led by Miggy Wild.
The Monthly Photo Topic is always eagerly awaited, and tonight was no exception. The topic ‘Yellow’ proved to be a popular one, from flowers, fruit and vegetables to vehicles, clothing and machinery.
All in all, a fine evening brimming with ideas, lively interaction and – not a surprise – colourful images.
The next Club Night will be a Members’ Evening with AGM, on 3 April, at 7.30pm in the Cartwright Hotel, Aynho. Everyone is welcome.
