Now for something different from the Digital Imaging Group. Rather than the usual Adobe hegemony we have a run through of Capture One demonstrated by our own Jan Davis.
Capture One is a professional-grade image editing application from Danish high-end digital photography equipment and software specialists Phase One, developed to cater for over 500 cameras and has become very popular amongst professional photographers.
Jan will give an overview of the latest features which make it even more useful in post production on RAW files (non destructive), reducing to a minimum the need to use Adobe CC.
Chichester Camera Club is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
This exhibition is open to all Print and Projected Digital Image (PDI) photographers of Chichester Camera Club who have Club or Intermediate status.
What you show is entirely up to you – you could present up to 4 individual canvases or a collage of images on a canvas up to 6ft by 4ft (180cm by 120cm) – the size of the club’s display boards. There will be no judging!
This year’s exhibition will be using a virtual gallery. To see an example exhibition please click on the link below which will open another window and then click on the link in the window.
Your images need to be uploaded in the usual way using PhotoComp with a maximum file size of 5 Mb by Thursday, 1st April. In your title please put your name, the title, image number e.g. Sarah Nichol- Vietnam- 1. Please enter your images in the order that you wish them to be displayed
I will need a hanging plan if you are entering up to 4 images.
I am sorry to have to let members know of the death of Tony Walsh on Friday last. Tony, Sue Nash’s Dad, was a long-time Club member who, along with his wife, Alice, was an enthusiastic contributor to Club activities until his declining health made that impossible.
Sue is grateful for all the support members gave both her Dad and her as it became increasingly difficult for Tony as his dementia worsened. Tony had moved into residential care and valued the visits he had from Club friends. He had his 90th birthday earlier this year but sadly with lockdown making it impossible for his family to visit since March, although Alice had been with him earlier on Friday and the family valued the care the home gave.
Our thoughts are with Alice, Sue, her sister and their families.
The AGM will be held at 7:30 this coming Thursday 21st May. All the papers were circulated to members individually and the recent Newsletter of 5th May provided a link to Dropbox where all the papers are stored.
The quorum for the AGM is a minimum of 36 members and the access codes to log onto the Zoom meeting are listed under the ‘Programme’ part of the website. Please make every effort to log on.
I hope to see as many of you as possible on Thursday
Everyone should have received an email giving details about the AGM. This will be held via a Zoom conference call at 7:30pm on Thursday 21st May 2020. There are 9 papers for the meeting and these were all attached to the email sent to you yesterday.
Some members may find it easier to access this material via Dropbox and all the attachments can be found by clicking the link below –
The Club has had a successful of re-start to using its CCC Flickr Group page, with a number of members linking in and submitting images over the last two weeks. The first Fortnightly Photo Theme ended with some good wrap-up thoughts from the guest commentator, Jan Davis. The 2nd Fortnightly Photo Theme round, “Bloomin’ Marvelous”, is now open for members to submit floral-related images, ranging from garden scenes to still-life of flowers, blossoms and so forth. Ideally, the images are from this year. A new thread has been posted, called Creative Challenge. This round is “Photography Imitates Art”. The idea is for photographers to interpret one or more known pieces of artwork into a photogrpah of their own. The original and the member’s creation should be shown side-by-side for viewers to appreciate. Creations can be serious re-interpretations to parody. Both threads will run in parallel for the next two weeks. No image on these threads is being judged — it’s for all friendly enjoyment! Everyone has the choice to participatie in either one or both of them, and to share more than one image. For anyone who has not yet joined us on the Club’s Flickr site, you are very welcome to participate regardless of skill level. We see this as a very useful image exhibiting platform for Club members, especially during this lockdown period.Our site’s admin. team are available to help with any IT questions.
The AGM will be held at 7:30 pm on Thursday 21st May. The original idea was to hold the meeting via correspondence but with all of us getting technologically competent with Zoom it will be held as a virtual meeting with full participation and discussion and the proceedings recorded. Papers will be circulated to members by the beginning of May at the latest.
There is provision within the Constitution for members to make their own proposals for inclusion in the AGM Agenda. All such proposals must be submitted to the Secretary in writing, not later than 21 days before the AGM date, duly signed by both proposer and seconder.
You will be aware that at the EGM held on 21st November 2019 it was agreed that the quorum for an AGM would be 25% of the registered membership (currently 37) so please make every effort to log in and attend. Further details to follow.
Many thanks to Mike Harris and Jeff Owen for putting together and delivering our first on -line full Club meeting yesterday. There were 46 Members who overcame the mysteries of Zoom to participate and discuss potential progamme subjects while we are all in lockdown and all were asked to consider and let us know if you have any other suggestions of what we might do. Mike reported on the detail of all this in the last Newsletter.
Mike has now been able to finalise speakers and dates for our revised summer programme and this will be as follows:
April 16th Janey Devine, ‘Celebrating British Life Today’. April 23rd Live Club/Inter PDI Competition – judge Daan Olivier
30th April John Bradshaw – title to be determined May 14th Glyn Edmunds ‘From Analogue to Instagram with Huawai’. May 21st AGM May 28th Pete Bamforth ‘O to be in Scotland now that Covids Here’.
All will be delivered on-line through Zoom. This platform is being used extensively by many organisations as a cheap and effective way of conducting meetings on-line though there are some security and privacy issues that are raised from time to time. It is very important therefore that if you choose to participate in Zoom meetings that you ensure your computer system anti-virus systems are effective and up to date and specifically please read the new Security Notice found at the top of the Home Page on the Club website
In addition to main Club meetings on Thursdays we are also offering sub group meetings: a very successful PAGB group meeting was held on 6th April, Richard Ryder has written a separate post on the next Digital group meeting included in this Newsletter and further events are planned for the Print group and possibly others. Do participate to make the very best of this dreadful lockdown situation.
