13th July: Online Creative Filters PDI Competition judged by Peter Fry ARPS DPAGB BPE4*

Last night’s ‘get creative with filters’ competition was judged by Peter Fry from Barnstable Camera Club.  Peter gave each image a thorough critique in a very constructive and helpful way and we had a very enjoyable evening for our last competition of our 20/21 season.

Congratulations to Julia Wainwright for  her winning image “Canary Wharf Skyline” and her second placed “Ice Beach”;  Peter Keeble’s “Car and Weeds” was third.  Highly commended were John Draper’s “Bluebell Woods”, Avril Candler’s “Brittle Bouquet” and Judith Gimber’s “White Water Whirl”.   Although these were singled out, there were several images that only just missed the cut.  With the start of our 21/22 season in September our monthly competitions will be scored and only the annual competitions will retain the current format.

Many thanks to everyone who entered the competition, supported the evening and the club throughout this strange and difficult lockdown year.

Very special thanks to Peter Fry for his commentary and judging all the way from Devon.

Below is Julia’s winning image.  All the images may be seen on our Facebook Page.

Stay safe and well and we’ll look forward to seeing you in September.

6th July: Talk – Mono Conversion Techniques by David Lowe ARPS DPAGB

Many thanks to David for a master class in mono conversion techniques.  Using Photoshop with Silver Efex Pro and other software,  he demonstrated simple basics that produce subtle changes through to full workflow, building up layer by layer resulting in dramatic results.  There was certainly a lot of information to take in, in addition to the editing skills involved, such as  having a goal, visualise and plan the image you want, take fewer but better photographs and pay attention to detail.

So many thanks again to David for a very informative, thought provoking and enjoyable evening.

Next week we look forward to our last competition of the year – Getting Creative with Filters, judged by Peter Fry ARPS DPAGB BPE4*




29th June: Members Evening

Sadly the weather and roadworks conspired against us and our planned meet-up had to be cancelled.  So we are now looking forward to next Tuesday and a talk by David Lowe ARPS DPAGB on Mono Conversion Techniques.
