Chairman's Challenge

This week it was the turn of members themselves to become judges when Dawlish & Teignmouth Photographic Club held the annual chairmans challenge.

An evening of two sessions, both colour and black & white, the subjects were chairs, and places.

Whilst not considered by some to be the most inspiring photographic subjects, the screened digital images of chairs proved that with some imagination and thought an excellent result may be achieved. Members enthusiastically rose to the challenge producing a wide variety of images, wheelchairs, deckchairs, train seats, shadows and reflections, cafe chairs and street benches.

The second half of the evening featured prints of places.

Each photographer put their own interpretation on the subject, a seal in his favourite rocky place, landscapes, the milky way in Namibia and some composites blending several images to produce something with a difference.
