A Taste of Activities for 2019

The committee has been busy planning activities for next year and we have been guided in this by the responses from the survey in terms of set subjects and workshops. A number of these are now confirmed and our first few competition nights will be as follows:

Month Judge Set subject
February Rob Sloane My home environment
March Jen Fawkes Perspective (monochrome month)
April Tom Putt Land/Seascapes
May Christopher Ian Portrait (also creative section)

So that you can prepare, other possible set subjects are travel, animals, movement, minimalism, food and low key/hi key. Once judges are organised these will be confirmed. The “creative months” will be May/July/September/November, so there is plenty of time to get creative before they are due in!

Workshops currently being organised are printing, black and white photography, low key/high key lighting (Kayell), travel photography, camera function and maintenance, macro photography, astro-photography and more.

We are also well on the way to securing Mark Galer who will be doing a half day workshop on LightRoom where we are hoping to cover some of the more advanced features. The first weekend in March is the likely date for this event and there will be a small charge which will be subsidised somewhat by the club. An advanced photoshop workshop is also being planned so watch this space.

New Competition Structure for 2019

To remain relevant and responsive to our members in 2018 the committee undertook a survey of members on a number of issues. One of these was to determine whether the current monthly competition structure needed change. After consideration of all the information received, the committee decided to go with a 3 tier competition structure in 2019.

End of year competition 2018

Entries for our end of year competition are due on Tuesday 30 October 2018. Of images entered throughout the year, members can select from those to enter the end of year competition with two images in each of:

  • Open print
  • Colour EDI
  • Monochrome EDI

The entry must have been entered into a 2018 monthly competition and in the same format. A print must have been previously entered as a print, and an EDI must have been previously entered as an EDI. An EDI cannot be printed and entered as a print, or vice versa.

On Tuesday 30 October 2018 bring your prints along to be placed in the competition box, but do not resend your EDI files to the comptetion address, you only need to send through the filename of each entry.

Do not forget about the President’s Trophy, those entries are due (emailed to the competition address) by Monday 12 November 2018.
