    Our second competition of the year will be a panel competition.

    Here a new judge to us, but a very experienced and successful photographer Alan Goldby CPAGB, BPE3, LPSNZ will have the difficult task of looking at sets of three images intended to be viewed together.

    In the Panel competition, we ask our photographers to take 3 separate images and to combine them into a panel to be viewed together.

    This competition is digital only, and you'll need to combine the 3 shots into a single image, however there are several different articles on the website about how to put a panel together, just start here.

    Monochrome as made regular appearances in the Hitchin Camera Club programme for many years, however for the last two years it's been a regular event within the programme. It's worth noting that monochrome doesn't necessarily mean Black and White, and the simplicity of a single hue can bring a whole to way to interpret a scene or subject.

    For this year's competition we're pleased to welcome another new judge Alison Jenkins CAPGB to Hitchin Camera Club.

    Due to the way dates fall in the early part of next year we're able to have our first competition of 2019 as "Christmas" and still be within the 12 Days of Christmas.

    In order to encourage everyone to shoot images specifically for this competition and to avoid a rush to get prints made we'll only being having Projected images, however that means that you'll be allowed 3 entries for this competition, rather than the normal 2.

    Our judge for the evening Colin Southgate FRPS DPAGB is such a welcomed and regular visitor to Hitchin Camera Club, he really needs no introduction at all suffice as to say we know he'll give some great feedback on our images.

    Nature is a fascinating subject brought to live by those who have the time, knowledge and skill give us incites into the world in which we live.
