Oue print league kicks off with our first print competition with the set subject of "Something Yellow" also of course we have the second section with an open subject. Two entries per section per member. Members are encouraged to use only 400 x 500mm mountboards for a variety of reasons but principally to rest effectively on our three display stands but also to prevent damage to other members work when transported as a group.
The print evenings are always popular so why not come along if you are a prospective new member to see our work?
The new season has started!
Do you fancy seeing how you might improve or get your images in front of an appreciative audience then please consider joining our club? We always welcome new members.
New members are especially welcome at any point in the season however why not take that step now at the start of our 2016-2017 season? We would all be very pleased to see you.
The latest available Programme will always be available at the top of this page and can be downloaded. This may be updated as anything changes so please check back regularly. Paid-up members receive a printed programme.
Tuesday 20th September
Last Tuesday (September 20th) we were pleased to have Matt Whorlow whose photographic images spoke for themselves (see http://www.mattwhorlowphotography.com). His presentation was titled "EnLightenment" . After his presentation members kindly forwarded on to the committee very positive feedback on Matt's work and the hints and tips he provided during the evening. A very successful and enjoyable evening.
The first Print League Competition kicks off on the 27th of September with the subject titles of 'Something Yellow' and 'Own Choice'. These prints should be brought along on that night.
For prospective new members the maximum mount and print size is 500mm x 400mm. Prints are required to be mounted as our stands do not otherwise support them. We encourage all members to use 500mm x 400mm mounts as standard however the image can be any size within that.
nb New members can be shown the various mounting methods if requested as we encourage the printing and mounting of images.
Whilst the club does not endorse any particular processing labs a number of members and visitors have had good service from DSCL - DS Color Labs and below is a link to their website. This is particularly useful to those that are unable or unwilling to print at home.
