On Wednesday 23rd September we held a practical club night with a tabletop session set up by Georgina, followed by a visit from Ron Strathdee to show us how he post-processes his images of the night sky and Milky Way.
A selection of images from the first part of the evening can be seen on this page showing people working on the different tables, and a few of their results. Many thanks again to Georgina for researching and setting up the different scenarios.
If you are a keen photographer looking for ideas and inspiration, the Southern Photographic Society may be the place for you.
We are a relaxed and friendly group of photographers who meet every other Wednesday from September to May in the modern clubhouse at Colby Football Club. All abilities are welcome and you certainly don’t need an expensive camera to join.
We hope everyone is well and enjoying the relative normality that we are currently fortunate to have on the island. The committee has had a short break to catch our breath at the end of a long eventful season but we will be meeting soon to discuss the next steps.
For our final digital competition of the season, judge Chris Nicholls was joined by wife Ruth, a fellow experienced photographer, who offered to make a separate critique of each image before they arrived at an overall score.
We are very grateful to Chris and Ruth for judging the Close Up competition from their home and helping us to complete our season, and – as you will see below – giving such in-depth comments.
Our final competition of the season was themed ‘Close Up’. Due to COVID-19 it remains impossible to run the print section but we are grateful again that the judges agreed to assess the digital entries at home.
‘Close Up’ is a challenging theme and attracted a variety of styles and interpretations. and the 45 entries can be viewed here with titles and names. Comments, scores and results will follow on Friday evening.
Steve Woodley judged the final Open and penultimate competition of the 2019-20 season. Due to COVID-19 there are no print entries in the last two competitions and the judges assessed the digital entries from their own homes.
