Lots to talk about today.
Epsom Camera Club Invitational Challenge.
Firstly I’d like to congratulate all the entrants from our club who had images in the above challenge last Monday. Particularly David Harris, scoring a maximum 10 for his image ‘Damselfly Mating Wheel (Ischnura Elelgans)’, Ann McDonald scoring a 10 for her image ‘Pelican Takeoff’ and Jim Munday scoring a 9.5 for his image ‘Watching the Storm’, although I have to say all our images were excellent. Five clubs were involved and the image quality was very high. Chichester came second by half a point to the eventual winners Tandridge Camera Club.

The club has received a mail from a Mr Graham Dodd who has a full set of 35mm photo developing equipment which has not been used since the 1980’s. All items are in original boxes and include a Kaiser System – V 4460 enlarger. If any member is interested please let me know as soon as possible otherwise it will be going to the recycling centre.
A handy tip from Roger Hance, our speaker on the 11th feb. If members subscribe to either David Tipling`s or Tesni Wards newsletters, when signed up they will send you a 10% discount code.
The discount code works on all Olympus products purchased from the OlympusUK web site. It will not work if you buy them through independent retailers like WEX, LCE, Park Cameras etc.
Finally, next week we are in the company of Chris Palmer who will be giving his presentation, Beyond the Summit’ / Talking Pictures?, so I hope to see you there.
