Print Competition 3

Steve Kirkby CPAGB was our judge at Reading Camera Club last Friday for our third Print Competition of the 2023-2024 season. This was a themed competition – “Photographing Food” – and members submitted up to 3 prints for consideration. Scores in individual competitions count towards the Chandler Trophy awarded at the end of the season.

Steve also gave us a taste of the audio-visual work that he does, with several AV presentations featuring a range of subjects including Newbury Pride and Winchester Cathedral. He shared many useful tips with us on what goes into making a good audio-visual.

Next Friday we have a presentation titled “Railways To Royalty” by Jack Boskett (see
