Excellent presentation given by John Humphrey FRPS on Macro and Creative
techniques. A really good evening, well delivered and Inspiring. John gave many examples of using creative techniques by showing ‘before and after’ applying textures and effects etc.
A very high standard of photography was demonstrated which included superb prints displayed around the hall.
Our 2nd PDI competition of the new season. Once again a great response to entries into the two competitions a total of 119 originally entered. This was reduced to make a practical night for judging to 85 (firs ttwo entries in each competition).
The results produced a good spread of winning authors in
first and second positions with encouraging results from new members.
Some great Images on show, which was well Judged by Lloyd
Welcome return for Cliff Hide professional press photographer who gave a lively run through of law and copyright from a photographers perspective and the key legal concepts we should be aware of. A very interactive presentation which gave some interesting examples of issues that can be a complex area.
Great response for our first PDI competitions of the season. 124 Images submitted which needed to be reduced to 68 for the night to give the judge a chance for meaningful comments on each Image.
A good night with a nice spread of authors in first and second places. Also great to see some new members entering the competitions and gaining vital feedback from the Judge.
Judge Amanda Wright was particularly supportive with constructive comments during her critique of images.
