The first session of the new season, on 1st October, is fast approaching.
Don’t forget that this is when we have our Summer Events Competition, a reminder of all the photo opportunities we have had over the summer break, a chance to share your images and possibly win the Summer Events trophy.
The closing date for the competition is Tuesday 24th September.
Anyone who has attended a summer event may enter up to six images but please add your images to photoentry in order of preference in case we don’t have time to use them all.
Usual rules for sizing etc apply for entering images. If you need a reminder go onto the website, find the competitions tab then ‘submitting images and prints’. (This competition is PDIs only).
Please remember not to include your name or numbers in your image titles.
The photoentry site is open and ready for your entries – just log in, go to main menu and Summer Events.
We look forward to a good competition on the night so get cracking and enter your best images.
It is generally acknowledged that the best time for garden photography is at dawn, especially with the rising sun, mists or frosts. Unfortunately we rarely get the opportunity to do this in large private gardens.
“The Dark Potions workshop is a day not to be missed for anyone that loves shooting creative concept portraits. Our venue for the day is Ravenswood manor house in West Sussex. We’ve got access to the grounds and exclusive use of the Baronial hall where we’ll be shooting images with a creepy, Halloween feel. I’ll be joined by fellow professional photographer Tommy Reynolds and two great models. During the workshop you’ll get to work with both photographers and both models, so you can expect to go home with a great collection of varied images.“

New Season Competitions
The competition schedule for the new season is now on the club website.
Please note that there has been a change to the competition brief for the Seasonal Points Competition ‘Long Exposure’ which is taking place on 25th February 2020.
It now reads:
‘Long Exposure Photography’ is a genre of photography that consists of two parts. The first is the deliberate and creative use of an extended shutter speed beyond that which is necessary to obtain a regular ‘correct’ exposure of a scene. The second is where there is such a shortage of available light, that the only way to obtain a correctly exposed image is to use a shutter speed that goes beyond what the photographer can easily take by handholding the camera.
The first Seasonal Points competition of the season takes place on 15th October 2019 with the closing date of 8th October.
The competition site will soon be open on photoentry . For a reminder of how to prepare your images for entry to competitions go to the website, Competitions; Submitting Images and Prints.
Also, for those of you who have attended this year’s summer events, the photoentry site is now open for your entries to the competition to be held on the first evening of the new season, 1st October.
