Bebington Salon

This Friday 27th February, Bob Dennis, CPAGB, APAGB, AFIAP, BPE4* of Bebington Photo Society will be presenting the best of the international entries into the Bebington Salon 2014. With our own Hoylake International Exhibition 2015 currently open to entries this is a timely reminder of the quality of photography to expect when the judging of the exhibition takes place this Spring.

A reminder also that Friday is the hand in for our monthly club competition, and the subject is "Pictorial". As the name implies, a pictorial image should be a picture rather than a straight representation of the subject. The portrayal of the effects of light and shade, and the atmosphere are more important than the subject itself. A pictorial image should never be purely factual and in this way it is different from an illustrative photo. The photographer should add something to the subject by the use of his / her imagination.

If you want to take a look at the best international photographs entered into the Bebington salon then you don't need to be a member of Hoylake Photographic Society. Visitors are always welcome at the club paying only £2 on the door.

We meet at Newton Village Hall, Grange Cross Lane, West Kirby with the doors opening at 7.30 pm for a 7.45 pm start and a 10 pm finish.
