Our Nature Competition

This Thursday, we were able to welcome our judge for the evening, Jorj Malinowski, to our first print competition in over a year. Jorj was telling us how this was his first face-to-face judging in around 2 years, having been recently judging over the Zoom platform. We gave Jorj a run for his money with our Nature competition, with 27 prints to judge.

His first placed print was English Woodland Fungi by Les Bradbury

Followed in second place by Damselflies Ovipositing by John Nash

In third place, was Clover Flower by Gary Briggs

and in fourth place, was Burnet Moths mating by John Nash

There were some very good entries and Jorj was able to give helpful advice to us to try to get our own prints placed n our competitions.

I've always had an interest in photography, starting too many years ago than I care to remember. I have a variety of cameras in working order ~ pinhole, medium format, 35mm and digital. With working full time, there never seems to be enough free time to properly indulge in using them. 10 years or so ago, I took my first (and only!) "A" level ~ in photography. I was the only one on the course to only do darkroom work throughout. My own preferences lie with film and alternative processes ~ Digital is fine for most things, but for me it hasn't got as much "soul"! I enjoy sloshing around with various chemicals and I enjoy the unpredictability of some of the results. Having said that, I am happy to rise to the challenge of digital work and manipulating images for competitions and suchlike when time permits.
