Selsey Camera Club

Members' Table Top and Outdoor Shoots

On the 11th November, we gathered once again in St Wilfrid’s Church Hall to enjoy seeing a selection of images taken by various members during the two club shoots the Table Top Workshop and the Winchester Photo Shoot.

As will be seen in the slide show below, between us all, we took an extremely varied yet interestingly satisfying set of pictures.

Our Next Meeting

Featured Photographer David Nicholls

At our next meeting on Monday 25th November we will hold the John Sayers Landscape Cup competition to be judged by Dick Saunders. This, as the title of the competition reveals, is a PDI competition for landscape images.

Up to 5 entries can be submitted by each member. Please remember that the maximum size for projecting an image using the club’s projector is currently 1920(W) by 1080(H) pixels. Also please ensure that you set the file name correctly, with the title in capital letters followed by “by” and your name in the usual mix of upper and lower case. eg BULLFIGHTING by Matt Adore.

The deadline for accepting entries is noon on Sunday 24th November.
Please send your PDI entries by email to Dick Read at dick@dickread.plus.com

NB Members entering 5 images must identify which image they wish to exclude should a cull be necessary.

I am a great believer in community spirit, that curious quality, a sort of glue, that brings people together and makes a village run

When I arrived in Selsey in 1968 I found all I needed except what? ?

Being a photographer for my working life and mostly enjoying it, I realised that this was it, a photographic club. There wasn't one so I started one! That was how the Selsey Camera Club was born.

It was very satisfying to see the Club settle in and start to grow but after three years my itchy feet got the better of me and it was time to move on. As it was the least expensive place we decided that Australia was the place to be and so we became Ten Pound Poms!

As electronics and e-mail have improved greatly keeping in touch with the Selsey Camera Club is easy and it is so satisfying to see it firmly set in as part of Selsey life.

I'm unable to visit you to help celebrate the Club's 50th Anniversary but I have already started saving for the next 50th so start planning.

George Abel. (Australia 2019)
