Club night summary – 11th April

This week a double PDI trophy competition was held with a good response to the entries, with 85 Images challenging for the silverware.(54 Landscape and 31 SB cup).

Our judge was the very experienced Jim Neman from Ealing CC.

Some brilliant Images were shown, in this keenly fought contest, making it very difficult for the judge to pick the ultimate winners of the trophies.

Congratulations to the winner of the SB cup Stuart Craig and Mike Brankin winner of the Landscape cup and the highly commended and commended members who also produced excellent Images.

Thanks to everyone who entered producing a very high standard of entry and once again raising the ‘bar’ of quality within the club.


Club night summary – 4th April

This week we held a workshop taking a look at layers and masking in photoshop.

This excellent workshop was led by Cat Humphries, who is very conversant and skilled in the use of photoshop. A number of members brought along their laptops and were able to work along with Cat’s demonstrations.

Cat explained how layers worked and how we can use them for our photographic projects. She guided the members through the layers palette,experimenting with blend modes and layer masks, in addition to making quick and easy selections with select and mask.
