Tonight sees the club's inaugural Sport and Action DPI (Digitally Projected Image) Trophy competition judged by Graham Whiting as well as Graham's judgement for our Portrait Print Trophy. Trophy evenings are always well attended and prospective new members can come along free (less £1.50 for a draw, cuppa and biscuit) and see the standard of work produced at the club.
We have a good level of entries in each of these Trophy competitions so a great evenings entertainment is assured.
Members are encouraged to have a go at producing an AV (audio visual) entry (a series of still images usually accompanied with a sound track or music). A link to download Microsoft Movie Maker has been provided to all members as Microsoft has seen fit not to include Movie Maker with Windows 10. Luckily it is compatible with Windows 10 despite the abscence of this fact on Microsofts own webpage for this download. You are encourage to get this NOW as according to Microsoft this product goes out of support in Jan 2017 and it may no longer be available after that period.
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.
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.
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.
