ALTON Camera Club recently celebrated a win by Lynne Harles LRPS at Newbury Photography Club in the Newbury Challenge Plate.

The inter-club competition is an annual event for prints and this year was between six other camera clubs in the local area.

Alton was placed fourth overall. However, Lynne’s print entitled Rough Seas won best print of the competition.

The image was created utilising Photoshop to combine an ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) photograph of some leaves, which was then turned through 90 degrees and combined with a picture of a ship, giving the impression of a ship in a rough sea.

Following a delay of two years because of Covid restrictions, the club hosted the Southern Counties Photographic Federation Championships in the Alton Assembly Rooms.

Thirty five clubs in the region entered their best photographs, some 700 in total.

Despite some excellent entries, Alton didn’t win any trophies on this occasion.

A talk by former veterinary surgeon Stephen Powles from his home in Devon on wildlife photography earlier in the month was well received by members.

Stephen’s talk ranged from a photographic study of tics to making his own customised shutter releases.

The club is now coming to the end of its 2021/22 season but welcomes enquires from both beginners and experienced photographers for its summer activities and the start of its new season in September.
