We should look forward to next week’s speaker Viveca Koh who has been highly appreciated by all the other clubs she has visited. We are having a lighting workshop on the basics in studio lighting with Reg Wilson on Wednesday 9th December. Please respond to the questionnaire on the annual exhibition before next Thursday. More information on these items is further down on the webpage. The majority of Bios are not yet with Kim Tattersall for the print exhibitors at North Mundham and should be sent as soon as possible.

We had a very stimulating evening tonight appreciating the best prints from the 1st division clubs in the SCPF. The judging by Caroline Colegate was full of very perceptive and sympathetic constructive comments that all were relevant to any level of photography. She still succeeded to differentiate between the very best images and the rest. The results of this heat were a first place to Winchester 71 pts. and a third place to Chichester 69 1/2 pts.

Last weeks meeting was a very useful insight into HDR, High Dynamic Range with a full recipe of the capture and postproduction of images. Jeff Morgan demonstrated all the variants in HDR and how they were achieved showing on the screen the steps in postproduction in Photoshop and Photomatic.
