Charlie Rutledge Memorial Competition
Last Thursday night club members welcomed Vitorrio Silvestri from CPA Camera Club to judge the entries which had been submitted for the annual Charlie Rutledge Memorial Competition. Charlie was a much loved and respected founding member of the Club and his great passion was Mono Photography. After Charlie passed away in 2016 it was decided to hold a competition each year in his memory and what other genre of photographs could such a competition attract but black and white?
Vitorrio gave a critique on each image and, in some cases, demonstrated how they could be improved. He chose images from the following club members as the prize winners:-
First – Terry Hanna. Second – Muriel Darling. Third – Frances Price. Highly Commended and Commended – John McCullough.
Terry's winning image of Finn.
At the end of the meeting, members were given a challenge for the next meeting. The challenge is to produce self-portraits using as much imagination and as many different techniques as possible. One such technique could be multiplicity – watch this space!
