Club meeting : Thursday, 14 April 2016 ~ composition round-table

At this week’s meeting, 14 April, we are having a round-table discussion on composition and what makes a good photograph, plus tips and tricks that hopefully we can all share when it comes to putting a picture together and why some ideas work and others don’t!

We shall be bringing along a selection of books showing work by photographers from a previous era — including Robert Doisneau, Willy Ronis and Jane Bown. It might sound boring, but some of this stuff is absolutely fascinating and we hope it will lead to some interesting discussions!

If you have any books or examples you’d like to bring along, please add them to the pile. We haven’t ever held a session like this before and we’re really hoping it will be interesting and useful. And, also, bring along your cameras if you’d like to discuss settings and other bits and pieces — but, perhaps, never had anyone to ask!

We are meeting at our usual time for an 8pm start at Monkland Village Hall and we look forward to seeing everyone on Thursday. New members are welcomed!

Print competition

We had a really strong turn-out for last night’s competition, which was back to being a prints only entry — no digital this time. Our judge was Hereford-based artist and illustrator, Moira Grafen-Campbell, whose critiques and comments were fascinating and inspiring. We’re hoping she’ll return to judge again next year as she was a very popular choice. She’s pictured here with her winning entries from each section.

Editor James Matthews-Paul speaks about the world of publishing

Our club members received a fascinating insight into the world of on-line and printed publishing, with tips and ideas about how to get photographs accepted by editors, plus a look at a typical magazine layout. Our speaker was James Matthews-Paul, publisher and editor in chief of Output Magazine (www.outputmagazine.com).

Sophie Matthews-Paul explains file formats and much more

Last Thursday’s meeting included a short presentation on the basics of digital processing and Sophie covered file formats, pixels and resolution, colour, calibration and profiling. We had a good turn-out for the session, with some new members and, hopefully, the information presented was useful.
