North Mundham – PDI Images

Dear members of the PDIs Advance group could you please support the Club North Mundham Exhibition by submitting up to 4 new images for the PDIs section. These can be uploaded at the normal site http://www.photocompentries.net/?org=chichestercc

Since we are using a HD TV to show the entries please note each image may be up to 1920×1080 pixels, sRGB. This is wider than our normal 1400×1050.

This is at no cost and it will be an opportunity to show your new work for all members and visitors.

As a bonus and incentive to you, all of the images will be retained by the selection committee for future consideration in the forthcoming external competitions.

Your support is appreciated and I thank you in advance for your input.

RPS meeting Tuesday 20th October

Next week’s special interest group meeting is the RPS group.  This group supports Club members and visitors who are interested in working towards the Royal Photographic Society awards.  You are very welcome to come along to find out more about the group – there is no need to bring images, but if you have work you’d like to have considered in developing an RPS panel (that is a collection of images that work together) do bring them along.  No need to make them full size, or mounted at this stage.  7.30 in the small hall at Tangmere Village Centre, with a cost of £3 for members and £4 for visitors

Print Group 13th October

An enjoyable Print Group last night – with some brave new members who shared their images with us for helpful comments,.  Pete Bamforth brought along his latest print book, a record of his recent visits to Birmingham.  Pete’s images are always stunning, and this latest superb A3 publication from Aperture took advantage of the 50% reduction Aperture offers Club members and friends in the Annual Exhibition catalogue.  You’ll have to be quick to use the voucher code – it expires at the end of the month.

Print Group meets again on 10th November – do join us!

Thursday 8th October

I’m covering for Jan while he’s away for a while and had the pleasure of introducing Tim Pile yesterday evening.  Tim is a self-confessed amateur photographer, but one of the highest standards, and a highly awarded photographer with a world-wide reputation at that.  He self deprecatingly also claimed to be the creator of the most corny talk tiles, and it has to said that his ‘Have I got nudes for you’, while clear in its intent, does some disservice to the beauty and quality of his images, many shot with just superb natural light in the natural and built environments.  He’ll be back in area at Bognor Camera Club next April if you missed his polished and excellent presentation – or indeed would like to see it again.

Next week there’s a change to the programme as Barry Senior, who was to judge the first Advanced PDI of the Year Competition, was caught up in the accident on the A27 earlier this week.  I’m pleased to say he was unhurt, but he and his wife were pretty shaken.  We wish them both a speedy recovery, and will be pleased to welcome Giles Barkley as out judge who has kindly stepped in.
