If you know anyone interested in learning more about taking better photos, don't hesitate to bring them along. They are more than welcome to join us at any of our judging or practical nights to see what we get up to! The more the merrier!
There is a new printable 2020 Calendar available for you to print out, I've got rid of the 'hover' feature that was stopping an easy printout for people.
Each Print Comp you will be able to enter:
SET SUBJECT - maximum of 2 prints
OPEN PRINT - maximum of 2 prints
MONO PRINT - maximum of 2 prints
*Please note this doesn't apply for Projected Images (still maximum of four images for these nights)
With the changes of our Print night now allowing an entry of up to six prints per competition, there have been changes to our pointscore system. At our recent Committee Meeting it was decided that members will need to obtain 300 points over 2 years to go up a grade.
2020 PRAC NIGHTS AND PRESENTATIONS
Have you considered how you can help the club on our Prac Nights? Perhaps you have knowledge to share about photography, maybe its's a technical aspect of the camera or software editing a particular style of photography or even knowledege of the great photographers! We want to hear it!! You are always welcome to have a chat in front of the club on our Prac Nights or if it's a shorter presentation I'm sure you'll be able to organise a time at our Judging nights. If this interests you, contact John Abbott to make a date!
SPYDER MONITOR COLOUR CALIBRATION
Did you know you can borrow the club's Colour Calibration Monitor? If you're looking at an image on your monitor that isn't true, how can you edit your image to the best of your ability? If you calibrate your screen you will get a more accurate photographic print compared to the image you see on your screen. Contact the committee for more information.
