GIRVAN Camera Club have gone back to basics with their first competition of the new session.

Monochrome, or black and white, was the theme adopted by entrants, selected to encourage more members to explore the possibilities and effects that can be achieved with black and white photography.

The competition was judged by Ayrshire pro Alister Firth, who complimented all of the authors on their efforts and remarked that there were some outstanding examples of black and white photography and some images he wished he had taken himself.

Competition results – Black and White Prints: 1, Donald Love; 2, Roddy Robertson; 3, Donald Love; 4 and 5, Rory McAdam. Black and White Projected Digital Images: 1 and 2, Rory McAdam (whose Peaceful Penwhapple is above); 3, Bill Arnott; 4, Donald Love; 5, Roddy Robertson.

Girvan Camera Club meets every Tuesday at 7.30pm in the small hall behind the South Parish Church on Duncan Street, Girvan. If you are interested in photography, you are welcome to join.

In addition, examples of members’ work can be seen at the Girvan Camera Club Exhibition in the McKechnie Institute until Saturday, November 24. Admission is free.
