Penryn Camera Club enjoyed our first meeting in our new location at the Penryn Athletic football club. It was lovely and warm, easy to park and we had a great evening.

This week the Western Counties Photographic Federation (WCPF) Travelling Print Portfolio reached Penryn. These are some of the prints (including winners and highly commended) that entered last years WCPF competition.

The evening started by selecting a bundle of prints and using them in a knockout competition based on a show of hands. We arrived at the three best in the club’s eyes and selected a 1st, 2nd and 3rd before checking where the WCPF judges placed them.

Later one of our professional photographers, Derek Godridge, took us through the remaining images. Derek highlighted things like the paper used, cropping, sharpness and composition rules. Many of the club members, including our youngest member, joined in with constructive comments and opinions on both the image and the points awarded. We did not always agree with the judges, but that’s fine, not everyone likes the same style.

Next week Thursday 20th (in a change to programme) will be a PRACTICAL evening where members bring their cameras and manuals and receive help in understanding some mystifying setting.
