Monthly roundup of club activities during October
There were four meetings, namely:
4 October - Miles Thompson chaired our third meeting of the season and, along with the more experienced club members, critiqued projected images and made suggestions on how they might be improved and how to submit PDIs for competition.
11 October - David Smith, LRPS, CPAGB, the current President of the SPA, judged the first Colour Print competition. There were forty entries and, in what was a closely fought competition, he awarded the maximum score of 10 to five images and 9½ to six others.
18 October - David Southern gave a terrific presentation of his wildlife and Surrey landscapes photographs and included a few recent Northumberland images for good measure. David is an early riser and his images clearly demonstrated the advantages of the quality of early morning light especially when a mist is present.
25 October - Roy Williamson judged the first of our PDI and mono print competitions. Roy had a hard task having to critique thirty four mono prints and thirty PDIs in a single evening. He scored five mono prints 10 and two 9½ and in the PDI section scored two 10 and two 9½.
Plus an outside visit to Petworth Park on 20 October:
A very good turnout of half the membership braved an early start and, after the mist cleared leaving brilliant sunshine to warm our backs, the clicking of multiple shutter buttons could be heard as the roe deer stags, with their hinds looking on, rutted and manoeuvred for our benefit.
Below are samples of the flora and fauna seen during the visit.
Cranleigh Bonfire and Fireworks Display
3 November 2018 - Cranleigh Camera Club were delighted to assist in photographing this year's event. The Cranleigh and District Lions and the Bonfire Boys do a fantastic job raising money for charity and once again put on a wonderful display for the residents of Cranleigh and visitors. Although the weather on the evening was good, photographing an outdoor event like this can pose big challenges for photographers, who have to cope with poor light, drifting smoke, large crowds and restricted access. However a number of club members were up for the challenge as you can see from their photographs below.
