Meeting Report 6th April 2021.

‘Photographing the Night Sky’

Martin opened the meeting by welcoming members and guests then introduced Peter Colley who will be presenting his comprehensive lecture ‘Photographing the Night Sky’.
Peter's lecture included loads of interesting information about our solar system and presented us with many of his super shots. The lecture included information and full details of the equipment he used together with his recommended settings. Many of his images are single images stacked and some are created by using time lapse photography then stacked. We are hoping to get backup information from Pete supporting his lecture which for many of us was far too much information to digest in one session. Watch out for information, we hope to get this from Peter which members can request as soon as it’s available, more information to follow.

Next Meeting information; April 13th 2021.

General Information & Future Events

Western Counties Photographic Federation Members Digital Exhibition results:

It was great to see four of our members achieve success in this annual West Country competition. Andy White hit the jackpot by receiving a Highly Commended certificate with his ‘Film Noir’ entry. Andy also gained 2 other Acceptances with ‘Resting’ and ‘Shy Flamingo’.

Jane Billing also did us proud when her ‘Chinese Calligrapher’ image gained acceptance, I believe this is Jane first success outside of club competitions…very well done Jane!.

Jim Goddard also came up trumps with his creative version of ‘In a Mirror Darkly’ Jim has done very well with this image in club competitions.

Brian Sweeting had a very good day too receiving 3 Acceptances in the natural history section with ‘Hunting at Dusk’, ‘Merlin Takes Flight’ and Red Footed Falcon.

This is a sound result but as a Club we could do much better if more members gave it a go. I will be reminding members when the next WCPF competition is taking place!

Members are reminded to prepare your creative or time-lapsed images for the next internal members’ competition before the closing date of April 20th.
