New WPS Improvers Group
Following the success of the Beginner’s Group this season a number of members are forming a follow-on Improver’s Group for the 2017/18 season.
The group will decide on a monthly theme/challenge and members will be expected to bring 2 or 3 images to share at the next meeting for critique and review by the group. There will also be a small “Picture of the Month” competition.
The group will be relaxed with the emphasis on members helping each other on any aspect of photography. While primarily focussed on previous Beginner's group members the group will be open to all relatively inexperienced WPS members who could benefit from a regular challenge and the opportunity to share their work in an informal atmosphere.
Winchester Photographic Society celebrated their triumphant win of the Southern Counties Photographic Federation (SCPF) league.
Entering eight prints that were judged by a different judge on eight occasions in eight different camera clubs, Winchester came first in the top league, just beating their rivals, Chichester Camera Club.
SCPF’s members total 50 clubs, so Winchester are justly proud of their win. “We’re a big club with some very talented photographers, and it’s wonderful that their skills and creativity have been recognised in this way.” said the current president, Eric Blake.
Particularly remarkable was the achievement of Steve Green, whose Iceland print, ‘Westerhorn Beach’, received full marks in five consecutive judgings.

The Committee also award Honorary Membership to Graham Barber for his devoted service as Treasurer of the Society for the last 6 years, an accolade well deserved by such a committed and generous-hearted man.
The Suggestions Box is on the Society Desk each week.
