June Zoom Workshop

Our next presentation will be on Wednesday June 23rd starting at 7pm. Our presenter will be Roy Killen and the topic is “Using layers and masks in image editing”. Login will be from 6.45pm by following the Zoom link on the website. Don’t miss this one! New to Zoom and don’t know where to start give me an email. We can help! All you need is a computer and/or iPad and internet connection.

On another note I need as many members as possible to score May Raw Image Challenge by the end of the month. All members will be able to see the blue scoring button in the “Members area” simply follow along and score each image from 1 to 5. There are only 6 images to score so should not take very long. Thanks!

2021 Portfolio Competition

Club members may recall that we had an excellent ZOOM presentation from Craig Parker earlier in the year on his entry of a Photographic Portfolio to The Photographic Society of America (PSA).  

Craig has agreed to judge a club Portfolio Competition later this year. The competition would be open to all club members and would involve uploading to the club website six individual images, a composite of those images and a Statement of Intent. Craig would then judge each members portfolio and provide comments and a grading similar to the club’s digital competition. This competition will standalone from the club’s  normal annual print, digital and Image of the Year competitions and will not contribute to the point scores for these competitions. 

At this stage it is envisaged that the Portfolio Competition would be run in parallel with our September competitions. 

This is a great opportunity for members to develop their photographic skills and pursue a theme or project they have an interest in or passion for. The purpose of this Post is to inform you of this opportunity. More information around the rules for the competition will be provided shortly.
