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!

Print Group Tuesday 14th February

The second Tuesday in the month is Print Group when you can bring along work in progress or finished work you would like to share, ask for opinions on or explain how you created it in a supportive and friendly setting.

Work doesn’t need to be mounted, but it is helpful if you can back images with card so that they will stay up better on the print stand. If you would just like to sit in and see how the group works, you will also be welcome.

There will be a second chance to see different papers and a look at how the printer settings can affect the outcome in black and white prints.

All Club Members are welcome, as are visitors.  £3 for Club Members, £4 for visitors at Tangmere Village Centre in the Small Hall at 7.30pm.

Print Group – Tuesday 10th January

The first Print Group of the new year will be looking particularly at how the choice of paper can influence the final print with samples of different products and the same image printed on different papers.  As usual, do bring along work in progress or finished work that you would like to share and discuss – if you have examples of photographs on different papers that will be especially welcome.

No need to mount the work but do please use some plain card to back the prints as this makes viewing easier on the stands.

Small hall at 7.30pm and all are welcome, with a £3 charge for members and £4 non-members.

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.
