March/April is a busy period; the clocks going forward on Sunday 25 March and Mothering Sunday are still in our memories. (It is not easy being a mother, if it were fathers would do it.) Easter eggs will still be around (30 March - April2).
Fordingbridge Camera Club will be holding a free exhibition of their photographs at the Town Hall on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th of May 2018. You will then have the opportunity to examine the work your friends and neighbours have produced. The work will be judged by a professional photographic judge and visitors will be invited to cast votes for their favourite image. Youngsters will also be displaying their photographic skills. Smart phones are here to stay; the exhibition will compare some photographs taken of the same view by phone and camera so that you can compare their qualities We meet at Avonway Community Centre at 7.30pm most Wednesdays of the season. Our website, www.fordingbridgecameraclub.org.uk contains our club programme. It is a mixture of talks by visiting top photographers coupled with opportunities to show your work on top quality equipment and have it commented on by experienced photographic judges. March 28th features a talk by John Bradshaw FRPS on ‘Some photo projects including Celtic Legends and Irish History’. In addition to our regular meetings, we devote many evenings to those who want, as a group, to set themselves new challenges and then to review the results collectively. These additional sessions have proven to be very popular and have added strength to our work. If you would like to see the standard some of our members have achieved go to our website and click on ‘Home’. Visitors are always welcome to our meetings for a small charge. Finally, I was going to comment on how Easter eggs were on display in supermarkets in late December but I feel that ‘Un oeuf is un oeuf!’
