Photograph St Albans Live…..14th May 2016

Upminster Camera Clubs “Photograph Live” event this year was St Albans.
The day started with the 19 participants, 5 partners and our judge arriving at “Mullberry’s Cafe” at around 8.45am for a full English breakfast to set them up for the task ahead.
At 9am they were given instructions to take five photographs, one to fit each of the following themes.

1. Cathedral.
2. Circles.
3. Trading.
4. Take a break.
5. Show me the light.

They had to hand in their digital cards at 12.30pm at The Cross St Centre, with only the five images on the card.
After 3 hours of frantic photography everyone then took a well earned break while the 95 images were loaded onto the laptop and the room prepared for the afternoons judging.
At 2pm our judge “Colin Strong LRPS CPAGB” set about the task of scoring each of the pictures to arrive at a 1st, 2nd, 3rd and best overall image result.
Colin soon got into the fun atmosphere of the competition and provided us with an afternoon of entertaining judging but still managed to arrive at a serious result taking into account that all of the images were straight out of camera with no adjustment or manipulation allowed.
