One of the many good things about our Penryn Camera Club is the ability to change
its programme at the last minute to meet members’ needs. Last Thursday was
originally planned as a competition between the men and women members.
However the evening actually turned out instead to be a great event of different
activities. Derek Godridge started with an entertaining hour of images from his
recent trip to Seville with really lovely shots of architecture and street scenes
accompanied by some very interesting historical facts about the locality. Then, after
our normal “comfort break” members split into different groups; one group were
shown how to make their own mounts for images by our Chairman, Ron Pitcher
using his special mount cutting equipment. He was ably assisted by Derek and
Stuart Ford. This was a useful teach-in for those who want to submit prints into
competitions in the future. Another group, lead by our President Geoffrey had their
cameras and manuals out as they discussed the various things that their new
cameras could do. So another night of fun and learning! This Thursday, if the
weather permits, will be the first of our summer evening field trips.
