International visitors focus on Ilkley camera club’s exhibition
11:19am Friday 18th January 2013 in Local news
Visitors from as far away as New Zealand have paid a visit to Ilkley Camera Club’s 60th anniversary exhibition.
The visitors’ book at Ilkley’s Manor House Museum has also recorded entries from Canada and various places in Europe.
More than 340 people have cast their votes for their top three prints.
Currently, Karen Spencer’s image of ‘Honister Pass’ is the clear leader with a picture of ‘Stepping Stones’ at Bolton Abbey in a strong second place.
Nick Hodgson’s image of ‘Snowy Sheep’ is in third place, but with votes cast for almost every single one of the 101 prints there are many photographs following closely behind the top three.
The exhibition is open, until February 24, on Tuesday 1pm to 5pm, Wednesday to Saturday 11am to 5pm and Sundays 1pm to 4pm.
Demonstrations of photo-related topics are held most Saturdays at 2pm. This month ‘Getting the most of your camera’ will be held on January 19, led by Len Morris, and a demonstration on NIK filters by Laurie Tetley on January 26. Admission is free to the exhibition and demonstrations.
The club meets on Fridays, at 7.30pm, from September to April at the Church Rooms, next to All Saints Parish Church.
