The Spike or Victoria College Review 1936

Photographic Club

Photographic Club

Though one of the newest clubs in the college, the Photographic Club has had a very successful year, marked by the enthusiasm of members in all club activities. Prominent local photographers continued to support the club by delivering addresses, Mr. J. W. Johnson, Mr. Chapman-Taylor, and Mr. A. T. Mitchell talking on Enlarging, Composition, and Portraiture respectively. The club was fortunate in securing the services of Mr. E. T. Robson as judge of the "Spike" Photographic Competition, and a meeting was held to hear his comments on the entries.

A field day, held in perfect weather early in the Second Term, proved most enjoyable.

Members have realised the value of the facilities provided in the Club's darkroom, and much good work has been produced there. As we have now been successful in securing the sole use of the darkroom, the safety of the club's equipment is now assured. A satisfactory grant from the Students' Association allowed the purchase of much-needed equipment, which it is hoped to augment in the near future.

There is no doubt that this Club, by its meetings and the provision of darkroom facilities, is doing valuable work in carrying out its object of fostering the photographic art in Victoria College.
