CIRENCESTER Camera Club announced the fourth competition results on February 11 at the Parish Rooms.

The Set Subject this month was “Long Exposure”.

Michael Krier, a very experienced photographer and judge from Cheltenham was in the hot seat.

The judge gave some very useful advice on the technical aspects, such as control of exposure.

He enjoyed the variety of the images presented for his comments. As usual on judging nights, attendance was high.

In late January we had a talk from Sandie Cox, ARPS, DPAGB entitled “How to take better wildlife pictures”.

Sandie is a nature/wildlife and travel photographer, lecturer, and judge based in Tetbury and an appointed judge for the Western Counties Photographic Federation and also judges national and international competitions.

The next meeting, February 4 was a practical night on low-key lighting which went down well and on February 18, it was committee members’ night. They showed us “how, where, when and why” from their own visual or practical experience.
