The importance of paper choice

We were very pleased to have Richard Walton FRPS MPAGB EFIAP BPE*3 APAGB with us on Monday when he presented his talk "Choices". We had the opportunity of seeing a good deal of Richard's work in print, some of which he had printed two or three versions of to illustrate the difference when printed on different Permajet paper. Members also had the chance to purchase from a wide range of Permajet papers. A very enjoyable and informative evening. An example image from Richard's talk... "The Guardians".

Critique Evening

This week the serious business of critiquing images was tackled with enthusiasm and humour by Chris Shore FRPS, MPAGB, EFIAP, BPE5*. A considerable number of images, all demonstrating a wide variety of approach and technique, were appraised. Drawing on his wealth of experience as a Premier Judge, Chris was able to instantly identify the strengths and weaknesses of individual images and suggest simple, but effective, improvements. Members were able to enjoy a dialogue with Chris regarding their images and everyone left the meeting feeling positive about the forthcoming competition season.

Members' Evening with John Sammonds

John Sammonds led the evening's events. The evening started with an interesting film about the early processes that led to the development of photography and the work of Fox Talbot and Deguerreo. It went on to talk about early photographic processes, touched on the work of Ansell Adams and ended in the digital age. The second half was a very useful presentation by John about how to make a slide show in PS using some of his early images taken in 2000 at Brands Hatch. He also invited people to his house if they wanted more instruction on how to produce their own slide show. An enjoyable evening was had by all!

First evening back

Our first evening of the new season included viewing members' images taken during the summer months, mainly at our various Out and About events. Secretary Ken Butcher reported on some facts and figures.
