Canterbury Photographic Society
3td January 2018
Our first meeting of the New Year was a members evening when members participated in showing and explaining some of their work.
The first half was mostly taken up with members showing prints including some older darkroom work and
included astronomical photography tips from John Kemp.
After the break some members provided a selection of interesting Audio Visual sequences.

Members of Canterbury Photographic Society were treated to not one but two judges comments at their latest Projected Digital Image league competition.
The highly talented Nature and Travel photographers, Ian and Marie-Laure Stone had requested a preview of the images to study at home prior to the Christmas break.
They explained their process of judging and marking independently and then they meet to discuss their results with each other until they reach agreement. They felt they benefited greatly from being able to study the images at home in detail prior to the evening and could provide members with a better critique.
The set subject was Street photography and the couple both contributed comments which were constructive and entertaining.
Steve Presnell captured the winning image ‘Pavement Chalk Artist’. Philip Wells received Highly commended for his image ‘A Taste of Canterbury’ and Wendy Kennett LRPS also gained Highly Commended for her image ‘I Think Not’
The Open section was won by Wendy Kennett LRPS for her Scottish Landscape ‘Tripple Falls’ closely followed by Jon Strange who also received 20 points and Highly Commended for his portrait ‘Petra’ and Pete Covill gained Highly Commended for his record image ‘Scissor Arches, Wells Cathedral’
