FOLKESTONE CAMERA CLUB

After a very successful day out to Lille, France o­n Saturday 11th October – we got back to basics o­n Monday13th October, with a presentation by Mr John Devenport FRPS MPAGB EFIAP entitled ‘Observations and Variations’ where we were treated to some brilliant photography.

We all had a thoroughly enjoyable evening and gave us some ideas of what we could all achieve with a little practice and knowledge.

The 18th October was the annual Kent County Photographic Association Handley Shield and Carter Cup competition held at Tonbridge. This is a competition to find the best slides from clubs throughout Kent and we are pleased to say that two of our members received Merit awards:- Betty Boreham and Robert Brisley – congratulations and well done. Our 1st Print competition of the season o­n 20th October was judged by MrJohn Butler ARPS, DPAGB, APAGB , a member of Tonbridge Camera Club a regular visitor to our club, and a very competent and experienced judge. Points out of 20 of each section were as follows:-

This is just a selection of our members work – many members prefer slides to prints and vice versa. (We at present have approximately 60 members)

We have a Practical Evening o­nce a month so members can practice with the studio lighting with a model and we always hope the newer members will come along to try their hand at portraiture or table top.
On the 27th October we will be seeing the judging of our first slide competition of this season.

The following meeting o­n 3rd November will be an illustrated and demonstration of portraiture by Mr G. Lancaster. o­n Saturday 1st November a coach party of us will be visiting London to see the musical ‘Les Miserables’, which we are all looking forward to.
