This week was yet another first for Otley Camera Club! Otley was joined by Cookridge Camera Club for a social night with a difference: 'Connect with Cookridge'.
Who knew that Connect Four and photography could go together?
Members of each team had been asked in advance to bring in a variety of prints from home which everyone did. When members arrived at the clubhouse the two clubs were mixed together and then split into two teams. The two teams were then pitted against each other in a ruthless game of Connect Four! Best of three winning the overall competition.
But how was photography involved I hear you ask - well, teams could only take their Connect Four turn if they were able to match a photographic theme set by the opposing team with an image from their stash - presenting three things they liked about the image along with something that could be improved for next time. The themes set by the opposing Teams were challenging to say the least - nothing so easy as landscape or portrait, from memory 'batman' was one of the themes!
A great time was had by all and there was lots of friendly banter and interesting discussion about the images. It's definitely something to be repeated next year and Cookridge have already offered to host the night.
