Digital Imaging group zoom meeting Tuesday 22nd March

This month Lorna has promised to introduce to / remind us of the processes that she uses when printing from Lightroom. I’m sure that most of what she has to say, particularly about proofing before printing and using profiles, will be applicable to all processing packages, so join us on Zoom to ensure that all your printing will be less hit and miss!

Spring Exhibition Reminders

This is now only 3 weeks away! If you have not already registered
there are a some boards left. Just go to the Exhibitions page on the website, download the registration form and email it to me at nicholsarahccc@gmail.com  as soon as possible.

For those already registered just a reminder that you need to email your personal statement to me by 24th March (next week). I also need a hanging plan in colour of your proposed exhibit by 24th March.  I would prefer if this could be a paper copy but understand that some of you may not yet be coming to the club.  In which case you can email it to me. This is so that we can coordinate the Exhibition.

If you are entering PDIs they should be entered via the usual method on the club website.  Jeff has extended the deadline for this until at least this Sunday, 20th March.

We need prizes for the raffle, a bottle or a box of chocolates or the like, and, nearer the time, cakes, preferably home made, for refreshments.  

Next week I shall begin to ask for volunteers for collecting the stands and helping with putting up the display boards for the exhibition as well as various jobs during the weekend.

Annual Exhibition 2022

The Club’s highly regarded Annual Exhibition returns this August to the Assembly Room in Chichester after our enforced break, running between Saturday 6th and Saturday 13th August. It’s now time to start the planning, but as it’s three years since we held our Annual Exhibition, I’m aware that our newer members will not have taken part or indeed perhaps ever even seen the exhibition.

Because of that, and as it might seem this is very early to begin our planning, I’m starting with some background information and to encourage all Club members to take part in this special opportunity to show your work to a wider audience.

The Exhibition takes place over a week and attracts visitors from far and wide – usually well over 1,000 over the period. It is open to all members in both print and PDI categories, and all members are guaranteed at least one image will be accepted.

Unlike the Spring Exhibition and North Mundham, this exhibition is judged, this year by Chris Palmer FRPS EFIAP DPAGB APAGB, on Thursday 9th June, who will select a number of awards and trophies. Along with the trophies won by members during the season (such as the league winners in PDIs and Prints), the awards are made at the Exhibition Preview Evening on Friday 5th August which is open to all members and their family and friends as well as the Club’s invited guests.

As well as the Selection Committee then deciding on the images to be included in the Exhibition, the layout of the display boards has to be arranged and a catalogue for the Exhibition produced and printed – hence what might seem like a long lead in time.

You can enter work that you have shown during the season, or work that is new and there is full guidance on how to submit both Prints and PDIs, available here (guidance for entrants). The upload site and boxes for prints will be open from Thursday 17th March, with a deadline of Thursday 12th May. This year we will also have drop off points for prints, available until the same deadline.

The Exhibition has an excellent reputation, and is also a wonderful social occasion – as you might guess, we need lots of volunteers and help to make the event successful – most importantly of course, a good body of work to exhibit.

Spring Exhibition, saturday 9th and sunday 10th April

We’re back live! Last year Intermediate and Club class members blazed the trail for virtual exhibitions. Hopefully this year we can do the same for the club live exhibitions. So please complete the form and start planning your entry! Information and entry forms will be added!

The exhibition is open to all Print and Projected Digital Image (PDI) photographers of Chichester Camera Club who have Club or Intermediate status.

This year’s exhibition will be held at Tangmere Village Centre and will be open to the public on Saturday 9th April, 10am – 5pm and on Sunday 10th April, 10am – 4pm.

Prints Each exhibitor will have one 6ft by 4ft screen and then what you show is entirely up to you – whether that’s one single postage stamp size image or a multitude of images to create a collage. You can use foam board, show prints with no mounts, create a classic panel or fill the space with one giant print .You are entirely free to exhibit work as you choose and will be responsible for your own display. There will be no judging! Depending on the number of entries it may be possible for you to have more than one board.

The image at the head of this post shows three layouts that were used by members in the past.

You can also enter up to 6 PDIs which will be shown on a loop during the exhibition
