Welcome to Wakefield Camera Club. We are a long-established, thriving and friendly club, meeting most weeks. Meetings are always open to non-members so if you’re interested in photography why not come along. Details of the next meeting are below the images.
Member Feature – David Carr. David has been a member for some years now, and as you can tell, steam trains are a particular favourite subject.
Our next meeting will be on Monday 6th June at 19:30 – Judging of Round 3 of the Clubman Competition – Surrealism
There are five Clubman Competitions each year for members (two Open and three Themed) comprising both Print and Digital categories. Tonight’s round is themed on “Surrealism” so it’s anyone’s guess how members have interpreted this! It’s a tough job for the judge as, with this subject, they may have to deal with both heavily manipulated images and strange images captured “in camera”. Subjects will probably be very varied and the judge will have to compare buildings with flowers, and landscapes with (say) bridges. Portraits, trees and sky may well make an appearance. It makes for a fascinating evening. Entry for the competition was two weeks ago as the Competition Secretary needs to collate the entries and send them to the Judge so that he/she can give good consideration to them before the competition night. The rules for the competitions are on the website. This is not only a fun way of participating in club activities but also a great way to learn how to improve your photography as the judges mark the entries and justify the marks they give by showing how the images could potentially be technically or artistically bettered. And for those of a competitive nature, this is gladiator time……..
