Last Thursdays meeting of an extraordinary Video show with sound (AV) for those who like abbreviations spanned a range of moving serious and humorous contributions from friends of our club and Graham Sergeant and Carole Speight. Carole who put together beautiful images with an appropriate sound track life the enjoyment way beyond an ordinary slide show. Graham also communicated in fascinating way the heroism of Shackleton in his AV. We look forward to more and encourage members to have a go.
The AV team Graham Sergeant, Carole Speight, Jean Mills and Bob Sherrard from Hailsham Camera Club.
The digital group was also a success on Tuesday where Lightroom on location was demonstrated very well by sheila Tester with support form Lorna Brown. For some of us who have tried Hipstamatic the demonstration and the superb images from Janey Devine open up a new avenue.
This is just an update on the Digital Group meeting of 22nd March.
In addition to projecting your apps images from your phones etc, Janey will be showing some of her prints and hopes others will do the same. There will be print stands available to show your work so please bring your printed app images along as well.
Rosemary Wilman managed to enchant us with images all with an originality and visual impact from well known locations that we have seen before such as Santorini, Harris and Yellowstone. Also images from less familiar locations such as Amritsar and Washington made her talk “About Time and More” an inspiration and lesson in image quality from one of the loyal followers of our club.
Certificates for the Beginners and Intermediate PDI competition were handed out and here is one of the winning images from Corinne Noyalet:
“My Sweet Valentine”
We congratulate Andrew Coe in getting his LRPS.

We are handing back our trophy for first place in the PDI league that we won last year, as we now are not in the running for the top positions.

The meeting of the Digital Group on 22nd March will feature two of our favourite lady photographers.
In the first part of the evening and following her stunning images at North Mundham, Janey Devine will talk about and show how to achieve creative and fun images from mobile phone and iPad apps. Janey asks you to practice some yourselves and to bring them along on the 22nd when we will show them on the screen using the projector. Bring your mobiles and iPads with you!
For the second half of the evening Sheila Tester will demonstrate Lightroom on Location Catalogue. This is an extremely valuable way of transfering images loaded and worked on on a laptop to your iMac without loosing the post processing you have already done.
As a Club we pride ourselves in sharing skills and techniques and we all draw inspiration from fellow photographers, as well as recognising the difficulties when on a photography trip we all take very similar if not the same images. But where the line is between taking inspiration and outright ‘copying’ can be hard to define. And in these digital days, the outright ‘theft’ of images is easier than it was previously. For instance, last year, a member of a highly regarded photo club was found to have entered what was someone else’s work in a national competition. An article in this week’s PAGB enews (157+ extra) makes very interesting reading – touching on prevention, detection and what to do if your images are stolen.
