Congratulations to Eileen Sutherland, FCC, on winning Best Portrait Print at the SPF Championships
with her image titled "Ziggy"
Thursday 26th Nov, 2015, FCC hosted the “Five Way”
competition in which five local camera clubs compete for a coveted
trophy. The 2015 winners were Stirling CC with 175 points, followed
in order by Falkirk CC, Airdrie & Coatbridge Photographic
Club, Kirkintilloch CC, Cumbernauld & Kilsyth Photographic
Soc. Although FCC came second in the overall competition they
topped all in the PDI section. Unfortunately points from both
prints and PDI together determine the overall winner. Congratulation
to Stirling CC members on their win, and thanks to the other clubs
for their participation. The competition was judged by Bob Collins,
AFIAP, Hon SPF, a member of Queens Park CC, and our thanks to
him for his time in judging and providing a critique on each image.
Sat 21st Nov FCC held a workshop on image editing with tuition
provided by Shahbaz Majeed from Dundee Photographic Society. The
members gained valuable knowledge on the use and capability of
Photoshop to help make better adjustments to their images. A big
thank you to Shahbaz for giving up time on a weekend. More on
the work of Shahbaz can be found at www.framefocuscapture.co.uk.
Falkirk Town Hall Exhibition
FCC will be holding an exhibition of images
at Falkirk Town Hall between 2nd Nov through to 22nd Dec 2015.
The images on display are photographs taken by FCC members and
represent some of the best from each member. All levels of expertise
are represented with images from experienced and novice levels.
Entry to the exhibition is free.
FCC have been successful in their application
for Lottery funding which will be utilised to purchase some much
needed equipment. Our current projector is now old and not up
to the task of providing projected images of a quality that will
do the picture justice. It is also intended to purchase frame
mounting equipment and other other items that are now groaning
due to age. These purchases will help revitalise the club and
hopefully encourage new member who will not see the club as outdated
and using vintage equipment.
