The Adderbury Deddington & District Photographic Society held their first meeting of 2019 at 7:30pm on the second of January, in The Apricot Room of The Cartwright Arms Hotel, Aynho. It was a well attended meeting being so close to the festivities, with about forty people there. The first meeting of the New Year followed our usual pattern and was a display of members own photographs titled “My Best Three of 2018”. Members are invited to show their best three pictures taken in the previous year. It became apparent that our members are prolific photographers and selecting only three can be a real problem. (Some of us interpreted this as favourite three). As can be expected there was a wide variation of subjects and photographic styles, ranging through portraits, architectural, landscapes, seascapes, wildlife and abstracts. A wide range of locations was also a feature of the evening, covering China, India, and Spain to Fenny Compton, Stowe, and our own back gardens. The result was a display of stunningly good, and highly imaginative pictures. The author of each picture was invited to speak about the subject or location, or motivation behind the shot. The audience then asked questions or commented on the photograph. This gave rise to helpful critique, useful advice, and as was expected, humorous friendly banter.
Our next meeting will be Wednesday 6th February at 7:30pm in The Apricot Room, The Cartwright Hotel, Aynho. The subject will be a presentation by FugiFilm. The subject for the next monthly challenge is “patterns”. As usual interpret this in any way you wish.
All are welcome, come along and see what we do.
