2nd Beginners and Intermediate Print Competition

We welcomed Sue Sibley as our judge on Thursday, and had a very enjoyable evening seeing very good work from both Beginners and Intermediates.  Sue’s judging was enthusiastic and very informative, with plenty of sound technical advice.  Sue’s has a very strong sense of composition, and a particular enjoyment of colour and lighting.  She clearly enjoys the quirky and was encouraging of more experimental work, as well as having a considerable interest in the photographer’s  thought processes behind the image.

As the current Chair of Southampton International Exhibition, we were very grateful to Sue not just for such an informative evening, but that she collected out members’ print entries for SIE!

Images for Selection Committee

Could every member remember to bring prints that you feel could be considered for representing the Club in external competitions (over and above of what I have asked for).

Could I also ask every member to send in new PDIs for consideration to represent the Club in external competitions. There will be a location on the website for this purpose. Could I also ask you to ensure all PDIs are in sRGB  at 1400 x 1050 DPIS at 300ppis.

Thank you all for your support, you have until the Thursday 11th February.

Janey Devine’s ‘Impressions of the Landscape’

I’m standing in for Jan as he is a way for a few weeks, and so had the pleasure of opening last week’s meeting which was a superb presentation by our own Janey Divine.  Janey took us on her photographic journey, from her first drawn images, through her ealry photographic experiments to her Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society. She is a highly creative image maker, and shared not just her many successes but also some work she felt had not worked as well, but which informed her development.  It was an inspiring evening which Iain McGowan concluded with a heartfelt vote of thanks to Janey.

Digital Group – composites

Digital Group on Tuesday 26th January enjoyed a two-part presentation from Keith Sawyer.  Firstly, he showed us how he achieves his extraordinary composites, such as the Custom Car.  Keith is a really original and creative thinker, and gave a highly informative talk which we all gained from.  He also showed us how he makes complex selections – capturing tricky stuff like hair.  It was a really enjoyable evening and I’m sure we will see Keith back at Digital in the future!

Don’t forget next month’s presentation with Richard Curtis, Adobe’s UK contact for Photoshop, Lightroom, Elements and Creative Cloud.  We welcome Richard back to the Club on 23rd February.
