Berwick Photographic Society meets in the Abbey Church Hall
in Church Road, North Berwick, East Lothian. Meetings
are every second Thursday from September to April. We also have
a varied range of club outings from May to September.
Photography Journey", a talk by Dylan Nardini, was our third
meeting. Dylan's journey to and from work, at work as a train
driver and on family outings gave him lots of inspiration for
some of the best Scottish landscape photography we've seen. Early
morning and winter are particular favourites of Dylan's with
plenty great snow and evocative misty scenes.
our last meeting new club member Neil Spowart ran a workshop
evening on Portraits. It was a "great hard working night
with Neil bringing equipment, models and advice".
our fourth meeting we invited Midlothian Camera Club to a match-an-image.
Judge Stephen Lipton gave North Berwick the result we deserved,
making amends for our narrow defeat last year. Away for our annual
Haddington Camera Club meeting, we had a 20-images-each competition
on the subject of "Water", judged by Charles Summers.
For the second time in a week we enjoyed a victory against an
recent assignment, "Forms in Nature", was judged by
Gordon Scott. Amelia Gatacre's "Poggio Conte"
was the winner, Ian Goodall's "Gannet's First Flight"
runner up and Neil Spowart's "Hills" third. Images
highly commended were: "Wild Orchid Flower Spike" by
Alastair White, "Gannet Seaweed" by Ian Goodall
and "Stalking" by Ian McDougall.
year we participated for the first time in the annual inter-club
competition held at the National Mining Museum. Karen Stout won
best overall image in this 9-club competition and Val Stuart
won the best PDI to complete a spectacular double for North Berwick.
