Print Group – Tuesday 13th December

December’s Print Group will meet on Tuesday 13th at 7.30pm in the small hall at Tangmere as usual.  All are welcome – bring along any prints you’d like to show and talk about, whether that’s finished work or work in progress.  There’s no need to mount images, but do please back them with card so they will stay up on the stands.

This is a great way to consider how you might get more out of your images in a friendly and constructive setting, learn new techniques and share views. Club members and visitors are all welcome, there’s a £3 charge for members and £4 for non-members.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAJean Brook’s Sunrise over Bournemouth Pier scored 10 points in the recent 1st Advanced Print Competition

Print Group Tuesday 8th November

This month’s Print Group is ideally placed for Club and Intermediate members who are looking towards the forthcoming 1st Print Competition, deadline 24th November.  Bring along work in progress or finished work for friendly and constructive discussion to help you decide which images to submit.

Work from Advanced members, visitors or non-competition pictures also very welcome – no need to mount work, but it helps if prints are backed with card of some kind as this helps the images to stay upright on the stands for viewing.

7.30pm in the small hall at Tangmere, £3 for Members, £4 for non Club visitors.

Print Group 11th October

It’s the October meeting of the Print group on Tuesday 11th and as usual everyone is welcome.  Bring along prints of work in progress or finished work to share and discuss.  It’s an ideal way to talk about techniques, share ideas and critique in a friendly supportive environment for members at all levels of experience.

Images don’t have to be mounted, but it’s helpful if you do back them with card to keep them upright on the stands.  Bring along up to 10 images if you are ready to show them, but you’re also welcome just to come along and watch.

Non-members are also very welcome at a charge of £4 (£3 for Club Members).  The group meets in the small hall at Tangmere at 7.30 on the second Tuesday of every month.

Print Group – first meeting of the season

The Print Group reconvenes on Tuesday 13th September – if you haven’t yet tried it out, come along for a taster.

You can bring finished prints, work in progress or nothing at all and just watch.  Work doesn’t have to be mounted, but if prints are backed by card it does help keep them up for viewing.

The group shares views, ideas and techniques and is an ideal way to discuss images in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. As the competition round starts this is also a good place to consider which images to submit.

The group welcomes new members and covers work from all levels of photographers, from absolute beginners to the more experienced.  If you are ready to show work bring along up to 10 images in whatever stage of development to share.

Non members are also very welcome at a charge of £4 (£3 for Club Members).  The group meets in the small hall at Tangmere at 7.30.

April 12th Print Group

This month’s Print Group on 12th April at 7.30pm in the small hall at Tangmere will concentrate on the upcoming Print Panel Competition and the Annual Exhibition.  Considering how to combine prints into a successful panel and how to put together a good entry for the exhibition, we will look at which mounts to use, which images complement each other best – and how to make a hanging plan, which you will need for the Print Panel Competition and can supply with your exhibition entry.

Bring along work you are thinking about for these events, even if it is  work in progress. ALL members who submit work for the Annual Exhibition will have at least one image shown – a thought through submission can be even more successful.  Come and find out how.

Print Group 9th February

Print Group tomorrow provides an opportunity to bring along work in progress to share and discuss with other group members.  Perhaps you’re looking ahead to the Spring Exhibition in April or the forthcoming print competitions in March – or even starting to think about the Annual Exhibition?  You’re also welcome to bring along fully worked up images you would just like to share, or – especially if you haven’t tried the Print Group yet – just come along to see what it’s about.  All welcome, 7.30pm in the small hall at Tangmere Village Centre.

Print Group 12th January

The first Print Group meeting of 2016 is on Tuesday 12th January – and with the deadline for the next Beginners and Intermediate Print Competition on Thursday, perfect timing to bring along prints you are thinking about entering.  As always, work in progress for discussion, fully developed work for sharing or prints from the ‘archive’ all very welcome.  Or just come along to see what goes on!

7.30pm in the small hall at Tangmere – £3 for members and £4 for visitors.

 

Print Group Tuesday 8th December

We had a lively Print Group meeting this week, with a particular look at different papers and the different effects they gave to the same original image.

Dave Abbott brought along a stack of images by the late Charlie Sayers, some dating from the 1930s .  Among these wonderful action shots and portraits was this handsome young fellow, taken in the mid-70s.  No prizes for recognizing Club stalwart Charlie Roe!

We’ll meet again on the 12th January at 7.30 as usual in the small hall.  That’s conveniently a week before the next Beginner and Intermediate Print Competition deadline, so do bring along work you’re thinking about entering.Charlie Roe portrait

Print Group Tuesday 8th December

First Tuesday in the month as always is Print Group.  We’ll be looking at different papers and the difference they make to images, some images from the archives, and with the 17th December deadline for the Advanced Print Competition looming, no doubt some work being considered for that.  Bring your prints for discussion, whether they are finished or in progress or just come along to see what the group is about.

7.30pm  in the small hall at Tangmere Village Centre – all Club Members and visitors welcome!

Print Group Tuesday 10th November

Members enjoyed Tuesday’s Print Group which looked particularly at the idea of ‘competition images’ and the sort of criteria judges look for.  With the deadline for submitting the first print competition entries for Beginner and Intermediate workers only two weeks away (Thursday 26th November), newer members found this especially useful.

Charlie Roe brought along some of the wonderful images by Charlie Simcox, including photographs of Chichester in the 1950s and a superb portrait dating back to 1942, which we greatly enjoyed seeing.

Next month we will be looking at the different types of print papers and how they can affect the look of the image, as well as, as always, images in every state of development that members would welcome comments and advice on.  And, it being the last meeting before Christmas, there will of course be mince pies!
