We had a lively Print Group meeting this week, with a particular look at different papers and the different effects they gave to the same original image.
Dave Abbott brought along a stack of images by the late Charlie Sayers, some dating from the 1930s . Among these wonderful action shots and portraits was this handsome young fellow, taken in the mid-70s. No prizes for recognizing Club stalwart Charlie Roe!
We’ll meet again on the 12th January at 7.30 as usual in the small hall. That’s conveniently a week before the next Beginner and Intermediate Print Competition deadline, so do bring along work you’re thinking about entering.
Santa was on his sleigh in the car park at the Coop Tangmere on Friday afternoon.
The pictures I took of Santa and the families are available to be sent to you by email. Small contact prints are on the notice board at the Tangmere Village Centre so if you send me the number of the image via the contact form on this page I will send you the file.
Maybe some of you gave me your address but the email did not get through so don’t hesitate to contact us.

Here is a message from Sue Nash announced at our last meeting:
Just a gentle reminder that if any of you are like me and have several attempts at printing your photos I would be interested in your ‘seconds’. I would like to do some montages for the walls of the care home where my Dad is but also to provide some boxes of interest for the residents to look through.
I am interested in all genres:
Landscapes and places of interest – please put the name of the view on the back if you can.
Not portraits unless they are of famous people which of course would be very welcomed – again names on the backs will help with my memory!
Of most interest would be any ‘revival’ photos that you may have taken at Goodwood or the Birmingham development weekend.
I will leave the box out most weeks and thank you again
Events next week not to miss: Monday: PAGB group, Tuesday: Print group, Wednesday: Lighting Workshop with Reg Wilson, Thursday: Beginners, Intermediate Print competition, Friday and Saturday: Tangmere Christmas Tree lighting and Christmas Fair.
On Thursday Viveca Koh FRPS moved us with a real treat of richly coloured and textured work full of meaning. The quote from Parr and Badger’s “History of Photobooks” writing about a Norwegian photographer, Dag Alveng’s book “Asylum” is spot on about Viveca’s derelict asylum photos. “Using a square format camera – the least dynamic yet most intense and monumental of photographic formats – the photographer documents the walls, the furniture, equipment and other objects to be found in the kind of place where we incarcerate(d) people.”
is a must for further inspiration and a strong justification to ask her again to our club.
She is giving a different talk to Bognor Regis Camera Club on Tuesday.
We also congratulated Sheila Tester who won a PAGB Gold Medal in the Nature Print Section at the 41st Smethwick International Exhibition of Photography and the other honours gained by George Atkins and John Howes detailed in a separate news item.
