We were invited to visit Jack’s garden again on a beautiful summer’s day. The garden always impresses, and Jack is so welcoming. Thanks again for allowing us to explore your garden with our cameras.
On 15th August 2017 Jack invited us to photograph his tropical garden hidden in a Surrey valley. He has kindly invited us for a return visit on 29 June 2018, and if you would like to go along please speak to Yvonne Lindup (see Social Calendar page).
There are videos and information from last year here.

Also some live photographs will be taken and ‘amended’.

Please see Steve’s website http://stevecaplin.com for more details.
The club visit to this tropical garden was well attended. Jack was most welcoming, allowing us to use his “shed” to make tea and coffee, and to roam around his garden all day. So many of the plants are exotic, growing to a good height in many cases, which gave the garden the feel of a jungle, especially as it was a hot day. Look at the photos taken by some of the members who visited to get an idea of this unusual place.

Brian Marjoram led our annual summer walk from Watts Gallery Car park to Loseley House and gardens on a pleasant July Wednesday. The walk is about 4 miles with some gentle inclines, and the 6 members who did it had an easy amble in the slightly damp weather. Yvonne and Ken met us for coffee at the Loseley cafe, and afterwards we had a guided tour of the gardens by Doris.
The sandwiches at the cafe were somewhat criticised, but otherwise the outing was successful, with excellent tea and cake on our return to Watts Gallery.

Ludshott Photographic Club did not do well in the Open Section. We were joint 13th with an average of only 9.65, which suggests quite a number of low scores. The images are judged out of 15.
We came joint 3rd in the Nature section with an average of just over 11 out of 15, a very good result.
Congratulations to Kathleen Bird LRPS CPAGB for winning a judge’s medal. This was awarded by judge Chris Palmer FRPS DPAGB APAGB EFIAP for “Lucilia Species”, a picture of a green fly taken at Wisley RHS gardens.

Alex has a profound understanding of what it takes to create stunning landscapes, and he shared his knowledge and enthusiasm with us in a fascinating talk.
In the morning he talked about the various aspects of outdoor photography and landscapes, covering technique, composition and lighting, including illustrations which give a sense of scale from a single viewpoint.
The afternoon session can be summed up as “Post Production”. There was a discussion on software choices and their various merits, between 8 and 16 bit images, the merits of RAW files and other technical issues.
Thank you Alex for an interesting and informative day, I am sure everyone went home better informed and inspired.
