January 2024 Review

As we move into a new year, Keyworth Camera Club have decided to have a couple of months where everything is done via Zoom, so we will all be tuning in from our homes and not having to venture out into the bitter weather conditions that can grip our country at this time of year. Switching to Zoom also allows us to bring in speakers from much further afield, speakers we wouldn’t be able to afford if meeting in the hall as travel costs alone would be prohibitive.

January 11th saw us taking advantage of Zoom as we were visited by speaker Tony Bramley FRPS who gave us a presentation called My Kinda Streets. Tony shared with us many techniques and ideas that he’d perfected over a number of years that would help us tackle this exciting and challenging genre. Tony’s images captivated his online audience as he explored many areas of street photography from candid work to fashion shoots on the busy streets of London and elsewhere. This was an excellent evening of stunning photography to begin our two months on Zoom.

On January 4th we held the fourth rounds of our internal competition. This was for pdi images in the following three sections: Colour, Nature, and the theme Tools of the Trade. Once again, the deluge of entries meant we had to cut the number of pictures in one of the sections to give our judge, Colin Lusby, a fighting chance of assessing them all before midnight. You can see the three images that won each section and all the placed photographs by clicking this link:


We held a fun members evening on January 25th. Our members had been asked to submit photographs that filled these briefs: four images with single word titles that followed consecutively in the alphabet, and a straight from the camera (no editing allowed) image taken on either Christmas Day or New Year’s Eve that captured something you did on your chosen day. Our membership voted on what they thought filled the brief the best and the panel shown above was the favourite set of four photographs. This night produced a lot of laughs and showed that all photography doesn’t have to be serious. Overall, this was a very entertaining evening. The attached panel by Paul Burrows was voted as the members favourite and uses the letters B,C,D and E to show Bottle, Cork, Decanted, Empty.
