Here are the latest editions of e-news from PAGB.
Point to Point, Printing and Mounting
Following on from Bruce and John Pegram’s interesting presentations on Tuesday evening, they would like to pass on the following information
Point to Point Racing
The next meet of The Oakley Hunt is at Brafield-on-the-Green, Northamptonshire
Sunday 17th March 2019
This photo opportunity is found on the A428 between Bedford and Northampton. When you arrive at Brafield on the Green, turn left in the centre of the village along Horton Road and the race course is approximately 1 mile along that road on the left-hand side. The following web site gives further details.
See the BCC Resources page (Paper, Printing…) for links to print companies including DSCL as demonstrated by Cliff
Also see the BCC How-To Page (Printing) for some further information
John’s preferred mountboard supplier is Paper Spectrum
Basic Logan 24″ cutter (this is the model I use, not as good nor as sophisticated as John’s but less expensive – Ian)
Logan 301-1 model from Paper Spectrum
Unfortunately, the speaker planned for our 5th March meeting is unable to attend. The fall-back position is that we will run a “members evening” instead.
The full details are still being prepared, but generally the evening will enable members that have any queries about say “colour profiles”, on-line printing, on-line pre-cut mount boards as well as DIY mount cutting, resizing images, PhotoEntry etc to have clear, simple demonstration of “how to do it”.
If you have a particular query which you would like to have addressed, please send an email ASAP to Bruce Deacon at email@example.com and we will do our best to include it in the evening.
Bedford Camera Club External Competitions
St Ives Interprint competition was held on 23 rd Feb 2019.
28 clubs participated by submitting 8 prints which were displayed as a panel and judged by Rosemary Wilman Judges feedback was then given to a PDI display after the exhibition closed.
The closing date for Round Four of our Seasonal Points competition is almost upon us.
The theme for this competition is ‘Shapes’.
Please get your images in by midnight tomorrow and bring your prints along to the meeting tomorrow night.
We are looking forward to another good turn out following our last successful competition so please get those images in now!
Snowdrops Photo Opportunity
If you are looking for snowdrops to photograph I can suggest Moggerhanger Park. It’s just 10 minutes drive east (A603) from Bedford, free entry, car park 1 minute from the wood, more than enough snowdrops to photograph and plenty of light through the trees.
A few I took today https://flic.kr/s/aHsm8X8YGk
Our next seasonal points competition takes place on Tuesday 5th February. The theme is ‘open’ so enter up to 2 PDIs and 1 print or 2 prints and 1 PDI on any subject you like.
Just to remind you the closing date is Tuesday next, 29th January, at midnight. Please bring along your prints to the evening meeting and have your PDIs for both competitions submitted into photoentry.
The following seasonal points competition takes place on 26th February with a theme of ‘shapes’ so get out and find some unique and fascinating images to enter by 19th February.
We are looking forward to seeing a good number of entries in each competition.
