Ilkley Camera Club was joined by Colin Harrison who judged two competitions, Colours of the Rainbow and Still Life last month. Competitions are an exciting part of the club’s programme and are a chance for members to receive expert feedback on their work.
In his judging Colin talked about the need for careful planning for still life photography to get the lighting right and to control every detail: "’balance is important and finding an unusual viewpoint can be interesting’’, he explained, ’Don’t include too much in the picture; too many elements can be a confusion’’.
Winners of the Colours of the Rainbow competition were, in first place, Alison Tetley with The House at Rainbows’ End; in second place, Sharon Sawyer with Oil on Water; and in third place Adrian Hendley with Street Art Stairway.
Winners in the Still Life G R Vere Trophy were, in first place, Sharon Sawyer with Forsythia; in second place, Tim Sawyer with Builder’s Tea; and in third place, Jayne Sanderson with Beetroot.
