Many of us who use Lightroom and Photoshop hold Julienne Kost in very high regard. She’s a ‘Principal Digital Imaging Evangelist’ with Adobe, and, job title aside, she presents very understandable tutorials on a whole range of topics, from the very basic to the most advanced.
So I was intrigued to see in the Guardian art and design section a series of photographs by ‘Californian artist Julienne Kost’, whose series Window Seat’ has been shot while travelling on business. She says that, creatively frustrated by the environments she found herself in – hotels, convention centres, airports – she started taking photographs of landscapes from her plane seat. You can see the work at: – https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/gallery/2017/jul/15/the-earth-in-plane-sight-in-pictures?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other
I’m pretty certain that is indeed ‘our’ Julienne and emboldened, I’m sharing here a photograph I also took from my plane seat when I was bringing back a teddy bear for my granddaughter and was making a book about his journey for her.

SCPF Exhibition 2018
It’s that time again! Registration for the 2018 Exhibition in Salisbury is now live online.
The process is as before: clubs wishing to participate must register online before the end of August, along with payment of the entry fee. Uploading of entries online will be in October, the exact dates to be confirmed …this will be after the uploading window for League entries.
Prints will need to be taken to the Club Reps’ meeting on 17th November, and there is no leeway on this as the judging takes place just two days later! The judge will be Roger Ford FRPS EFIAP/g
As before, due to the available space in the gallery we can only accept print entries from 35 clubs, but there is no limit on the number of PDI club entries. Entries will comprise 6 prints and/or 8 PDIs
We do ask all participating clubs to help with stewarding the Exhibition. Without stewards we are unable to provide catalogues, display the PDIs or provide information to the visitors, which really devalues the event. Last time we only covered about half the available stewarding slots, and this was provided by just nine clubs …. so lets do better this time round!
Set out below is Peter’s full report and results of the PAGB Inter-Federation Competition and Exhibition. For this all our entries are scored, with the top 15 counting towards to Inter-Fed Championships. Then the Exhibition is selected but with fewer images and ensuring representation from every Federation, so the scores are not the sole determining factor in this. Thanks to so many of our members we had a great set of images to select from, and this is reflected in the excellent results for SCPF.
2017 Sony PAGB Inter-Federation Print & Projected Digital Image Exhibitions
I am pleased to provide the information on the PAGB Inter-Fed Exhibition Competition 2017 results, which were judged on 3rd June, at: Carleton Community Centre, Carleton Road, Pontefract, hosted by the YPU. The first page has the results of our Federation position in each category and the images that have been accepted including the photographers’ names. The next four pages show all of the marks for each individual entry. My congratulations to all of our members that have had their work accepted and in particular to Marcin Ciesielski for a PAGB Ribbon awarded to his image Coco. It should be noted that our Colour prints achieved the 4th position which is an outstanding result. Thank you all for your support, the standard was exceptional and many excellent images were not selected. The non-selected prints will be returned at the September Reps’ meeting.
