Week 4 Images
The final call for the week 4 images on Minimalism is tonight (Sunday April 26th 11.59 pm)
More details on what and how to submit and find the many inspiring images from our first three themes here
Last night, 21st, we had an interesting, online talk from Matt K about Lightroom and Photoshop. He started from the premise that you had them installed but was perhaps not using them very much and only touched on a few aspects of the Develop module.
Matt does sell his video tutorials and currently at a 50% discount. He is an excellent teacher and I can only assume these tutorials are well worth an investment.
“We are all in the midst of it now, but one day this pandemic will be history. The full impact of the COVID-19 crisis will be important to document and evaluate for future generations looking back at this historic event.”
The Higgins Museum, Bedford is reaching out to photographers and others to help document these days for future generations. Can you help?

Nigel Danson is a good landscape photographer, he posts regular videos on YouTube.
With the lock-in most landscapers are stuck at home.
He has arranged a competition with some excellent, donated prizes including a Nikon Z50 with lenses, carbon fibre tripod from Benro, Kase magnetic filters and aTenba Axis bag. The cost of entry per person is £10 and for this you can upload up to 5 images. Six good judges will select the winners. All proceeds go to both help fight Covid-19 and benefit those affected by the virus.
Submitted landscape photos must have been taken BEFORE March 1st otherwise it doesn’t matter how old they are. Closing date May 31st

We were really pleased with the response to Week 1 event (Macros) with 70 brilliant photos, well done everyone.
They were reviewed at the first club’s Coffee Morning via Zoom on Thursday 9th, very ably hosted by John Gough. Keep a look out for the one.
Just a reminder that the Stuck at Home Weekly Image event closes on Sunday 12th April. The subject is SHADOW(S)
Take up to 3 shots this week and post them in the normal PhotoEntry website. I’ll upload them to the Adobe Album on Monday.
If you would like a critique of your image please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your image title, tell the critic if you would like it to be private or open.
The club members have really stepped up to the mark. All the images submitted to our week 1 Stuck At Home Event have been nothing short of excellent.
I have had some short paragraphs kindly submitted to explain what, how or why they took one or more of their images, these images have been isolated to precede their images with their text. But due to my incompetence I managed to mislay those paragraphs sent to me. I have recovered two, (Bruce and Chris H.) If you have sent one and it is not in the album, I do apologise, please send it me again and I’ll update the album.
The images are in the author’s name sequence, click a thumbnail to view full screen, click the I (letter eye) icon to view the author’s name and title, and right arrow to move forward.
The link to the album can be found in the club’s GALLERY > EVENTS webpage bedfordcameraclub.co.uk/stuck-at-home-weekly-image/
The new theme this week is SHADOW(S), pictures must be taken this week, closing date April 12th, upload to the usual PhotoEntry website. If you wish to say something about your image(s) please email it to me and I’ll try my best to take better care of it this time.
