Atworth Camera Club September meeting

Story posted on

“Coloured Houses and Painted Chalets”  was the subject of Atworth Camera Club’s meeting on 24th September. 

Alan Lee reports, “There were a large number of digital images, plus a number of prints displayed around the hall. 

“The talk was given by our club president, Jim Marsden, FRPS, and was the result of a project that he started when he lived in Bristol many years ago. It began with just a few images of coloured houses taken around Victoria Park, and went on to Totterdown, the dock area and Clifton woods. 

“As the project grew larger, Jim extended his search for more images to include a trip to St. John’s, Newfoundland, where he found some clapperboard houses painted in many colours. This in turn led on to including a number of painted chalets taken in Walberswick, Southwold and Wells-next-the-Sea on the east coast and Paignton, Milford on Sea, and Mudeford on the south coast.

“After Jim’s talk, there was an opportunity for members who had been unable to do so previously, to show their images of “street photography” and “something moving”.

“The club’s project for the autumn season is “Wildlife,” so birds, bees, flowers and fungi, plus a whole lot more subjects spring to mind.

“Our next meeting will be on 29th October when the speaker, Michael Barnes from Cardiff, will be presenting some of his prints to guide us in “Critiquing images with a view to development of a personal style.”

“For our meeting on 26th November Horace Prickett, who used to teach photography at Trowbridge College, will give a talk entitled “In search of the Northern Lights.” After this, members will be able to show their “Wildlife” pictures. 

“There is no formal membership of our club, no commitment, and the monthly fee of £2 includes refreshments. So whether you want to share your photographic experiences or would like to enhance your skills, why not come and see what we have to offer? Our meetings are open to all, wherever you live (even residents of Atworth). 

“The club meets in the Atworth Village Hall at 7.30pm on the last Monday of each month.”
