Club exhibition - Evesham



Get yourself down to The Word of Mouth, Vine Street, Evesham www.wordofmouthcafe.co.uk to check out a collection of 20 images taken by Club Members.

The exhibition, the first public exhibition for BPC, is part of Evesham Festival of Words - www.eveshamfestivalofwords.org, is entitled 'A Picture Paints 1000 Words' and the images do indeed provoke thought and your interpretation of any of them may well differ from another's!

BPC thanks Evesham Festival of Words for inviting the club to be part of things and also to Louise and her staff at Word of Mouth Café, as it could never have happened without their support.

And - images are selling fast!  At just £6 each, snap up something special for your own home or workplace.

Members return from BPC wetlands photo shoot

An early start for BPC Members to catch the early morning activity of local wetland wildlife.

14 Members spent an enjoyable hour or so, when they were lucky enough to spot a Great Crested Grebe and a Lapwing, along with regular visitors: Canada Geese, Greylags and Mallards.

We had a good time, but the photos show that folks were ready for their breakfast at Revill's Farm Shop and Café!

BPC Autumn Programme Announced!

Take a look at our programme page - we've go so much going on over the coming months it will make you dizzy!

London Camera Exchange continue to give us their fantastic support and will return for their third visit during the autumn.  We also, by popular demand, have James Greenoff return for a second presentation. 

New to BPC - The Intellectual Property Office (IPO) will tell Members all about copyright, what it is, what it means and how to protect your work.  If you have your work on websites, libraries, catalogues, albums - anything that you don't have total control over - you need to be copyright conversant - it's your work and nobody has the right to use it without your express permission.  Find out more from the experts at the September meeting!

Autumn programme shaping up nicely!

We're still waiting to finalise the content for the July and August meetings, but take a look at what's happening in the autumn!  There is something for everyone.  Further details will be released as soon as possible.

If you have yet to make your first visit to Birlingham Photography Club we meet on the first Tuesday of the month, 7pm - 8.30pm, at Birlingham Village Hall, WR10 3AB and it's just £3 per person per meeting - no joining fee, no up-front payments, just turn up and enjoy our presentations, workshops, guest speakers and the freely available photo-chat from fellow members.

Hope to see you soon!

Amazing visit to the wetlands today!

BPC Members made a visit to the local wetlands this morning - the hide was a little on the snug side, but everyone managed to find something to capture an image of.

Spotted:

Canada Geese
Mallards
Great Crested Grebe
Lapwing
Coot
Greylag Geese
Gull (not sure which one)
and a magpie!

Thanks to Steve Diston for sending through some images, which are on our gallery page, so take a look.

Another visit is planned for an evening in May. 
Next regular Club meeting - Tuesday 2nd May, 7pm.

Congratulations to BPC members on their scores awarded by the Absolute Photo judges.

Jim Fergusson     15
Kevin Williams  14
Mark Waidson    17
Peter Allies         16
Sue Allen            16

Total                    76

Which means that we're not last!!  BPC is a very young club and we should be very pleased with matching and even beating the scores of some very large and well established clubs and societies.

First flush of photos now up!

Round 5 of Absolute Photo's Best Camera Club competition is landscape and, as usual, Birlingham Photography Club members have risen to the challenge!

Visit our competitions page to see the first flurry of landscape images.  Deadline for submission is midnight Sunday 30th April, voting then opens and will close at midnight on Wednesday 3rd May.

BPC members can vote for the three images they think sum up 'landscape' - email your choices as usual and the top five, each taken by a different photographer, will be uploaded to the Absolute website for the judges to decide!

BPC members should send their titled images as JPEGs and votes to birlinghamphotography@btinternet.com

Fingers crossed for decent weather over the weekend!
