|Art Asylum Studio Night - 25th Nov. 2015
Our members had a great evening at the Art Asylum photographic studios and gallery in Brewers Quay, Weymouth. Thanks to Sean Hepburn and Felix Thompson for organising this for us. The gallery is well worth a visit and the studios are available to hire at reasonable rates. Some of the images from the night are now available on our Photo Gallery page.
|IoPHT Photo Comp 2015
The 31st annual Isle of Portland Heritage Trust Photographic Competition took place on Fri 16th Oct and the Exhibition of entries was held on Sat 17th & Sun 18th.
There were fewer entries this year with 480 prints, but the quality of images was very high and the size of prints generally larger which meant a great display that still managed to fill all three halls.
See the "IoPHT Photo Comp" page for a report and list of winners.
See www.stgeorgesreforne.co.uk/ for some of the winning photos.
|Wessex Battle 2015
This annual inter-club competition was held on Monday 26th October at the Corn Exchange in Dorchester. Nine of the top clubs from across Dorset competed with just 8 images each and Dorchester regained the trophy with a deserved win. We did very well this year coming in 7th place - well clear of the two clubs below and not too far behind the ones above. Our top two images on the night were by Hayley Roberts and Gerry White which both scored the full 10 marks and were awarded Highly Commended. The judge on the night was Sheila Haycox ARPS DPAGB EFIAP who had a tough job with lots of high quality images of varied subjects and styles. See the results and our images on the separate "Wessex Battle" page.

Joint Photo/Art Exhibition
Sat 6th June 2015
Our fourth annual joint exhibition with the Royal Manor Workshops Art Group took place on the above date. It was a great display as usual and there were plenty of visitors who praised the work on show and quite a few prospective new members were obtained. Please see the "2015 Exhibition" page for a report of the event and the gallery page with photos of all the display-stands. It is planned to hold another this year on Sat 4th June.
The next Committee meeting will be held on Wed 6th April at 7:30pm.
Brian Lynch Challenge
The third annual Brian Lynch Challenge took place at Weymouth Camera Club on Tue 24th Feb and was judged by Penny Piddock. See the separate "BLC 2015" page for a report. The next one will be held at Portland on Wednesday 2nd March 2016 and judged by Malcolm Macnaughtan.
We have kindly been awarded the sum of £340 towards a replacement laptop and Photoshop Elements license. This has enabled us to update our original one and also gain an extra machine for us to use during image-editing tuition sessions.
The club wishes to thank Synergy for this opportunity.
