The first Image Competition of the season took place tonight. It was judged by Charlie Moore of Eastwood Camera Club.
Charlie was very constructive in his comments, giving hints as to how he thought the images could be improved as well as a few things he liked about all the images.
Linda gave Charlie a hearty vote of thanks.
The results were as follows
1st = Enslaved by Dominic Smith
1st = Monochromatic Rose by Dominic Smith
2nd Angelica by Wullie Graham
3rd White Flowering Cherry Blossom Tree Branch by Dallas Carter
Motherwell Photographic Society are currently enjoying speakers that they would not normally be able to host due to the pandemic.
Thursday saw us welcoming Catherine Knee from England on Zoom as a good example. She calls herself a photographic artist as most of her finished work bears little resemblance to her original images. She combines numerous photographs of her own to produce wonderful fantasy images. She also makes a lot of her costumes to produce the image she strives for. It was a fantastic evening and Catherine also gave tips on how she produces some of her effects. We were also shown some traditional photography to prove that she has many strings to her bow other than her fantasy work.
Thank you Catherine for a wonderful evening of photography.
Next week the theme of the talk is Sports Photography by Peter Milsom
