The theme for Peterhead Camera Club’s latest competition was ‘Candid Shots.’

As this meant taking unposed portraits, it provided a very interesting challenge to the members as they endeavoured to employ covert tactics at public events to capture their images without the subject’s being aware of their presence.

The Judge for the Candid Shots competition was Joe Rosie who works for Carmarthen Cameras which is the largest Camera Shop in Wales.

He is also a member of Carmarthen Photographic Society and regularly gives talks there together with demonstrations of the latest camera equipment.

He found the images interesting and often entertaining particularly with the connection between the image and it’s title.

The winner was Norman Laird with a total of 75 out of 80 closely followed by Kathleen Laird with 74 and Val Wright third with 72.

A special commendation went to newcomer Michael Ritchie for his image ‘Run Michaela, Run.’

The club meets every Tuesday and Thursday evening at 7.30pm at 10 Farmers Lane, Peterhead.

New members are always welcome.
