Print Group 9th October

The Print Group got of to a very lively start this season at our meeting in September and we were pleased to welcome new Club members.  Other than one brave soul our new members didn’t bring work this time, which is fine, but they are promising to do so in October.  Later in the season we will have meetings that look at specifics of the printed images, but October will be a general meeting to simply share our images – perhaps with an eye on the forthcoming first print competitions this season.

The group is an ideal way to share your enjoyment in photography It’s all about the end product so we cover composition, cropping, content and also look at the ways different papers will affect the finished picture. You’ll pick up lots of tips too, on camera technique and post proccessing.

Just bring along your favourite images to share, or perhaps work in progress. If you’d like to different ideas about images that just aren’t coming together as you’d like, the Print Group is an ideal place for you.  You’ll also be very welcome to just come along to find out more about the group without bringing work to show.

The group is open to all photographers, whether new or advanced, and is an easy way in to learn about critique and chat to other Club members about work.

We meet on the second Tuesday of the month in the small hall at Tangmere Village Centre, at 7.30pm. There’s a charge of £3 for Club members and £4 for visitors.

 

Print Group – Tuesday 11th September

The Print Group reconvenes for the new season on Tuesday 11th September, meeting as always in the Small Hall at Tangmere Village Centre at 7.30pm.

The group is an ideal way to share your enjoyment in photography  and to share views, tips and techniques on printed images.  It’s all about the end product, so so while we don’t look specifically at the process of printing itself (see the Digital Group for sessions on printing), we do look at all matters relating to the end image.  So we cover composition, cropping, content and also look at the ways different papers will affect the finished picture, as well as touching on mounting.

You can bring along your favourite images to share, work in progress, those images that don’t quite seem to come together on which you’d like different opinions or perhaps images you are thinking about entering for competitions.  You’ll also be very welcome to just come along to find out more about the group without bringing work to show.

Images don’t need to be mounted, but please do just stick them onto some firm card so that they will stay on the display stands we use.

The group is open to all photographers, whether new or advanced, and is an easy way in to  learn about critique and chat to other Club members about work. The group is also open to non-members, and the charge is £3 for Club members and £4 for visitors.

Nomad describe these boxes as Heavy Duty in that they have two webbing straps and moulded black plastic corners.

Handles can be supplied on any size box at an additional cost of £3.

    Note: There are two types of handle – webbing handles and suitcase handles. I wouldn’t recommend the suitcase handles for boxes 4 inches and above in depth. Also handles can be a bit of a nuisance if you are going to be sending your box through the post on a regular basis.  If you are ordering a 6” deep boxes please bear in mind that they are a substantial weight when filled.

April Print Group

Don’t forget Print Group on Tuesday10th April! As usual you are very welcome to bring along work in progress, work you would just like to share or images you’d like a second option on.  The Print Group is a really good place to chat about images, gain really helpful ideas and understanding about how images are judged in competitions.

And with the deadline for the Annual Exhibition only one month away, it’s a perfect place to start thinking about which images you might like to enter and how to show them to their best advantage.

The Print Group meets on the second Tuesday of every month in the small hall at Tangmere Village Centre.  The cost is £3 for Club members and £4 for visitors.

Print Group Tuesday 12th December

Our December meeting will look particularly at different photo print papers and how they can affect the final look of your prints.  Do please bring along examples of different papers (nothing needs to be mounted but prints backed with card stand more easily on the print stands) or as always any work in progress or finished work you’d like to share.

You will also be very welcome if you’d just like to come along to see how things go.  The Print Group is a great way to share views on images and along the way learn much about possible processing techniques and how to get the very best out of your photographs.

We meet in the small hall at Tangmere at 7,30pm on the second Tuesday of the month, £3 for Club Members and £4 for visitors.

Print Group Tuesday 14th November

The Print Group meets this coming Tuesday, 14th November at 7.30pm in the Small Hall at Tangmere.  As always, everyone is welcome but this is a special invitation to newer Members to find out more about the Print Group.

The purpose of the group is to get the very best out of our prints, so you can bring along finished work you would like to share, new work you’re not quite sure about or anything in between.  If you just want to come along and find out how the group works without bringing any images along, you’ll also be very welcome.

If you do bring work, it doesn’t have to be mounted, but it does help if you back it with card just so that it sits properly on the print stands.

There is a charge, which is £3 for Club members and £4 for visitors who are also very welcome to join us.

Print Group 10th October

The Print Group gets together for its first meeting of the new season on Tuesday 10th October and is an ideal opportunity to find out more about what the group does.  While members with all ranges of experience do come to and value the group, it is a particularly good meeting for newer members where you can just see other members’ work and hear the conversations  or bring along you own images to show and discuss. 

It’s a friendly gathering with work shown that is in progress, where we consider how to get the best out of the print, or where we show finished work that we would like to share.  You don’t have to mount prints, although having them stuck to card does help them stay on the stands.  Later in the season, we sometimes look at work that has been judged and consider how the judge’s comments might be applied – or indeed ignored!

If you don’t feel ready to show any work yet, you will still be welcome to see what we do.  Later on, we will also be looking at the different  effects that different paper types can give – our emphasis is on getting the very best out of your work to produce really good finished prints.

We meet on the second Tuesday of every month at 7.30pm (although please come along earlier to help set up) and the cost is £3 for members and £4 for non-members.

Print Group Tuesday 11th April

The Print Group this month is an ideal opportunity to bring along prints for both the forthcoming exhibitions – that’s the Spring Exhibition taking place on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd April, and the Annual Exhibition the deadline for which is 27th April.

All members are guaranteed that at least one image will be included in the Annual Exhibition, and the Print Group will be a good place to think about how best to put images together for the exhibition, to find out more about how the judging and selection processes  work, and – we hope – to make sure you get a good number of your submissions accepted!

As always, either finished work or work in progress welcome.  There is no need to mount the images, but backing them with some simple card does help to keep them on the stand!

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