Tangmere in lockdown

Zoom has been a real boon these past months keeping us in touch with each other and providing camera club activities. It’s not the same though as meeting up and we’re all missing getting together at our home at Tangmere Village Centre. The hall is missing us too, so I recently sent out this note via the Tangmere News, the village newsletter.

Chichester Camera Club has its home at Tangmere Village Centre but has been unable to meet since March due to Covid 19, with Club activities transferred to Zoom. Club stalwart and Tangmere resident, Lorna Brown, has documented Tangmere in lockdown, including this lovely photo of Gloria who has been organising food deliveries in the village over the past months. The Camera Club hopes to resume meeting at the hall in the new year, in the meantime you can see more about the club at https://chichestercameraclub.org.uk/

 

Print group Tuesday 13th October

The Print Group continues via Zoom on Tuesday 13th October, looking at how to get the best out of your digital files.  You are welcome to submit a maximum of three images for sharing and discussion, following the guidance below.

You can find  all the Zoom invitation sign in details  for Club events on the Club website under the programme listings or via the news posts

To submit images for discussion please follow this guidance on how to do so.

  • Please submit images by 5pm on  Monday 12th October  by email attachment to me.
  • Resize images to 1600 x 1200 pixels, maximum 2MB. You can find resizing guidance on the Club website at https://chichestercameraclub.org.uk/pdi-image-re-sizing/
  • Please title your images (embedded in the file please, not as an email list) with your name then either the title or other identifier, such as file number ie Lorna Brown Sunny Afternoon or LornaBrown no1 
  • If MAC users can find how to attach rather than embed images it would be really helpful but isn’t necessary (PCs read some MAC images as embedded not attached, which can be resolved by how the MAC makes the attachment)

I look forward to seeing you then.

RPS Group goes digital

As we are still unable to meet in person, this season we will start the RPS Group off via zoom, beginning on Tuesday 15th September at 7.30pm. 

If you are interested in finding out more about the Royal Photographic Society distinctions, do join us for an introduction to the different levels and how to go about submitting work for assessment. A key part of putting together a portfolio of work for the RPS is how the images work together – a mini exhibition if you like – in a ‘panel’. The dark arts of panelling are not just critical for RPS submissions but helpful in putting together images for Club exhibitions and the Print Panel Competition (which we all hope will be possible next year!).

As well as an overview of the RPS awards we will be focusing this month on the LRPS, Licentiate level – the ‘L’ panel, and will look in more depth in October at the Associateship, the ARPS. Do join us to find out more.

Chichester Cameraclub is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Tony Walsh LRPS

I am sorry to have to let members know of the death of Tony Walsh on Friday last. Tony, Sue Nash’s Dad, was a long-time Club member who, along with his wife, Alice, was an enthusiastic contributor to Club activities until his declining health made that impossible.

Sue is grateful for all the support members gave both her Dad and her as it became increasingly difficult for Tony as his dementia worsened. Tony had moved into residential care and valued the visits he had from Club friends. He had his 90th birthday earlier this year but sadly with lockdown making it impossible for his family to visit since March, although  Alice had been with him earlier on Friday and the family valued the care the home gave.

Our thoughts are with Alice, Sue, her sister and their families.

 

All in a day’s work – photo essay

Photographer David Collyer, who is a Operating Department Practitioner in an Abergavenny Hospital, has documented the experiences of the department during the coronavirus epidemic. 

As well as being a revealing insight, they are a fine example of documentary photography and the images are accompanied by David’s explanatory text.

RPS Group 17th march

PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT IS CANCELLED

It’s more good news for the RPS group with a successful LRPS submission by Wendy Davies. Wendy is one of the visitors to the Club and we are thrilled she has achieved her Licentiate. Wendy will be joining us again on Tuesday 17th March to tell us about the advisory day and the assessment itself. 

This means we have scored a hat trick within the group this season with distinctions at all levels. And it’s many congratulations to Wendy.

Join us to find out more about the various levels offered by the RPS in the small hall at Tangmere at 7.15 for a 7.30pm start, and at £3 for Club members and £4 visitors.

Print Group 10th March

Print Group in March is ideally placed for some last minute consideration of entries for the Spring Exhibition as well as our usual mix of work from members with all levels of experience.

Work in progress, new work, work you’d simply like to share with the group, all welcome for friendly advice, skills sharing and discussion. 

And – as always – if you’d just like to come along without bringing work, you’ll be very welcome too.

7.15 for 7.30pm start in the small hall at Tangmere with a £3 fee for members or £4 for visitors.

RPS group 18th February

The RPS Group meets again in February on Tuesday 18th, when we will continue our consideration of the distinctions offered by the Royal Photographic Society, and provide the ongoing support to Club members and visitors in putting together successful panels at all RPS levels.

For Licentiate level, you need to construct 10 images that sit well together in a complementary  way (the ‘panel’) that show a wide range of good photographic techniques. Associate level requires 15 images united with a theme and Fellowship 20 (or 21) images, again with a strong theme.

If you’d like to find out more, you’ll be very welcome to come along. There is no need to bring work to begin with – you can join us to see if this is something you would like to pursue. 

We meet in the small hall at Tangmere, at 7.15 for a 7.30pm start.

11th February Print Group –

The Print Group meets on the 11th February with our usual mix of work in progress through to favourite prints brought along to share.  

With the Spring Exhibition just weeks away now (28th and 29th March) it’s also a perfect chance to bring along ideas for the exhibition where creativity is the order of the day and the usual rules about print mounts are abandoned. The priority for the Spring Exhibition, as it is for North Mundham,  is how to put together a compelling panel.

Also in March, there is the Print Panel competition where the print competition mount rules  do apply while the emphasis is still on how images work best together. To that end, we’ll start the evening with a look at the options within the 40 x 50 cms mount restriction.

We meet at 7.15 for a 7.30pm start in the small hall at Tangmere Village Centre, with a £3 charge for Club Members (£4 non-members).

The meeting will take place at the small hall in the Tangmere Village Centre. We will meet at 6.45 pm for a prompt 7.00 pm start. Please come at 6.45 to help set the room up. The cost is £3 for club members and £4 for non-members.

Members are encouraged to bring along prints and/or digital images for in-depth constructive critique. We look forward to seeing you and your images.
