Selsey Camera Club

Paul Ubsdell Wildlife Trophy

Our annual wildlife competition this week provided the nineteen members and visitors present with a great show of digital images – fifty-three in total submitted by thirteen members. They depicted a wide variety of subjects including birds, mammals, trees and flowers as well as several featuring butterflies.

A warm welcome was extended to our judge for the evening, Rob de Ruiter ARPS from Bognor Regis Camera Club. Following the usual preview, each image was displayed for Rob to comment upon and give a mark out of twenty. Throughout the course of the evening some very helpfully constructive feedback was given by Rob, including suggestions aimed at helping members to improve the composition and overall quality of their wildlife pictures.

Our Next Meeting

Featured Photographer David Nicholls

At our next meeting to be held at 7.30pm on Monday 30th September we will be treated to an excellent presentation from Roger Crocombe ARPS a very experienced photographer from Bognor Regis Camera Club. The subject of his illustrated talk is “Photobook Creation”.

He will cover a number topics starting with the choice of photobook development tools and the choice of photobook size, layout and theme. He will illustrate a variety of themes which include photo borders and page backgrounds in coordinating colours to make designing the book simple.
He will demonstrate the various ways of displaying text alongside or overlaying the images and to ensure important content is kept away from page edges. After the content is reviewed via the preview mode he will discuss how to customise your book, choosing cover and paper types.

Please try to attend this most interesting and informative presentation.

I am a great believer in community spirit, that curious quality, a sort of glue, that brings people together and makes a village run

When I arrived in Selsey in 1968 I found all I needed except what? ?

Being a photographer for my working life and mostly enjoying it, I realised that this was it, a photographic club. There wasn't one so I started one! That was how the Selsey Camera Club was born.

It was very satisfying to see the Club settle in and start to grow but after three years my itchy feet got the better of me and it was time to move on. As it was the least expensive place we decided that Australia was the place to be and so we became Ten Pound Poms!

As electronics and e-mail have improved greatly keeping in touch with the Selsey Camera Club is easy and it is so satisfying to see it firmly set in as part of Selsey life.

I'm unable to visit you to help celebrate the Club's 50th Anniversary but I have already started saving for the next 50th so start planning.

George Abel. (Australia 2019)
