The developers group meeting on the 17th December was dedicated to a demonstration and talk about Portrait photography by Simon Fuchter. Simon owned a portrait studio in South street and is the 3rd generation from a family of portrait photographers. He demonstrated the essentials of portrait photography with the importantance of lighting. He had brought along a selection of representative images of his own and his father and grandfather.
He gave us a summary of the essentials, covering Lighting, Pose and the most important, Expression.
The winner of the Self Portrait competition was Charlie Roe. The competition participants sent in an eclectic collection of images but the traditional portrait of Charlie is outstanding and had a true period feel that convinced the judges that this was the winner.
Well done Charlie. Thanks to all the participants.
We are having a portrait shoot of The Tangmere Players at a dress rehearsal at the Tangmere village hall at 2pm on Sunday December 2nd. Let Jan Davis or Andy Dulson know if you are interested in coming.

An exhibition of black and white photographs of Sussex life during the 1960s and 70s by celebrated photographer Dorothy Bohm (b.1924), providing a candid and often humorous window on a bygone era. Renowned for her portraiture and street photography of London, Paris and Moscow, this group of photographs – never before shown as a complete body of work – reveal her personal connections to the county in which she arrived from Nazi Europe in 1939.
