Mount Boards – Free to good homes

There is precious little going on in the way of mounting prints jst now, but with a little forward thinking, this might be a good offer, especially for newer members who are yet to embark down the mounted print route. It’s always useful to see images mounted to see how they really look and having some on hand a real benefit.

Janey Devine has a number of good condition mount boards that are now surplus to her requirements. they are all 40 x 50 cms, single mounts in Britannia card, off-white. The professionally cut aperture sizes are as follows: –
2:3  ratio – 31.6  by  21.7,   29.6  by  19.7, 21.5  by  14.2, 19.2  by  12.8
1:3 ratio – 42.2 by 14.2
1:4 ratio – 40.2 by 10.2, 30 by 7.5
1:2 ratio – 28.4 by 14.2
1:1 ratio – 1 9 by 19, 14.2 by 14.2

If anyone would like any of these mounts, please contact me via the printgroup@chichestercameraclub.org.uk mail and I will pass your message on to Janey. janey will hold on to the mounts until we can again meet, otherwise they will be going to the tip.

RPS and Print groups – Update

As the Club will not be meeting until at least the New Year, this is an update on how the Print and RPS Groups will carry on in the autumn, both virtually and looking towards possible real meetings in due course.

The Virtual Print Group has been very enjoyable and with lots of positive feed back. Of course for those of us who love the finished print (I must print something this week or my poor printer will think it is permanently abandoned) it can never entirely replace the simple pleasure of seeing and holding a print, just as the virtual meetings can never replace the pleasure of meeting our friends and colleagues. But is has had some advantages and is certainly better than nothing at all.

Along with other Club activities, we will be taking a break over August and will resume in September taking our usual second Tuesday in the month for meetings via Zoom.

The RPS Group  has been more difficult to transfer to Zoom, as the basic premise is of how a number of images sit well together in panels and looking at  a minimum of 10 images on a screen is rather limited. As the RPS had also suspended its distinctions assessments, a short break seemed sensible.

While the RPS has not yet reinstated the distinctions process, I am loath to wait longer to get this group together in some way.  So from September we will start Zoom meetings, the first on 15th September, our usual third Thursday in the month slot. 

This will be an introduction to the RPS distinctions and the fine art of panelling and I hope some of our newer members and those who might like to learn more will join us for that.

At the same time, we can consider if, how and when we might actually meet in ways that meet whatever guidance is in place through the autumn, possibly in the day time rather than evenings and with limited and carefully managed numbers.  This would enable those who have more developed panels to finalise these in readiness for the RPS to start its processes.

In the meantime, you might like to follow the RPS Facebook group for those interested in distinctions at this link https://www.facebook.com/groups/818415748671322

Stay safe and well, and enjoy the summer!

Virtual Print group – 14th July

The Print Group is really in its stride now with our virtual meetings and gets together again via Zoom Tuesday 14th July. While we might miss the pleasures of seeing the printed images, we are benefiting  from being able to make real-time adjustments on screen,  such as quick cropping or mono conversions.  You can send along new work for comment of bring back images you’ve worked up further after previously sharing.     You can find the invitation sign in details at the end of this post.

Once again, you are welcome to submit up to three images, and if so, please read the following guidance on how to do so.

  • Please submit images by the end of Monday 13th Jul, by email attachment to me.
  • Resize images to 1600 x 1200 pixels, maximum 2MB. You can find resizing guidance on the Club website at https://chichestercameraclub.org.uk/pdi-image-re-sizing/
  • Please title your images (embedded in the file please, not as an email list) with your name then either the title or other identifier, such as file number ie Lorna Brown Sunny Afternoon or LornaBrown no1 
  • Email them to me (if you don’t have my email address you can find a list of Useful telephone numbers and email addresses on the website under ‘Documents’
  • If MAC users can find how to attach rather than embed images it would be really helpful but isn’t necessary (PCs read some MAC images as embedded not attached, which can be resolved by how the MAC makes the attachment)

Virtual Print group 9th June

The Print Group will continue to meet via Zoom and meets next on Tuesday 9th June. We’ve hit our stride now and enjoying the opportunity to make some adjustments on screen, such as quick cropping or mono conversions. It was good to share different work, with Jonathan Fiske  who is relearning film photography (an irony there as we have to meet digitally while he’s gone back to film) showing some of those first images that had been scanned in.  Others brought back images they had worked on more since we last met, or tried out new techniques.    You can find the invitation sign in details at the end of this post.

Once again, you are welcome to submit up to three images, and if so, please read the following guidance on how to do so.

  • Please submit images by the end of Monday 8th May
  • Resize images to 1600 x 1200 pixels (apologies – a typo slipped in to the size given before), maximum 2MB. You can find resizing guidance on the Club website at https://chichestercameraclub.org.uk/pdi-image-re-sizing/
