On Monday March 18 Cirencester Camera Club members made their second visit to Cirencester College.

During the first half of the evening the students were able to watch a club judge give his views on a set of club competition entries, illustrating how the judge's comments help members take better photographs.

The second half of the evening featured a review of the best of the current students’ work.

This was an opportunity for the club members get insights into the way the students complete their portfolios. There were some very creative images on display, and the students spoke confidently about their influences and inspirations.

On the following Monday there was a warm welcome at the club for Eddy Lane ARPS DPAGB EFIAP APAGB who was visiting the club to judge the fifth and final in the series of competitions held throughout the season.

The competition was divided into two parts with print and digital images being submitted in either the 'Open' competition or for the 'set' subject of ‘Long Exposure photography’.

In this set subject competition the images must show the effect of using a slow shutter speed and long exposure time, and that the image has been enhanced by the use a slow shutter speed. As ever, Eddy provided excellent considered and pertinent feedback on all 76 images based upon his many years judging experience.

Winning images were: Running for Home by Lawrence Wilcock, first in ‘Long Exposure’ (print), Lost by Gary Gleghorn, first in ‘Long Exposure’ (digital), Maldivian Gecko by Martyn Smith, first in ‘Open’ (print) and Hello Stranger by Gary Gleghorn, first in ‘Open’ (digital).

The club meets every Monday evening from September to May, excluding Bank Holidays, at the Parish Hall, Watermoor, Cirencester, GL7 1NE - visitors always welcome https://cirencestercameraclub.org
