Selsey Camera Club

Iain McGowan Presentation - "From the Garden Shed"

For our first meeting of 2018 we were delighted to welcome Iain McGowan to our club this week and were greatly impressed by the quality and variety of the print collections he brought to show us.

Entitled "From the Garden Shed", Iain began his presentation by explaining that he had been a late convert to digital photography - only six years ago - and had made up his mind at the outset to avoid all computer-based digital processing and produce pictures by directly plugging the memory card from his Panasonic compact camera directly into his printer. In his approach, Iain aims to exploit all his camera settings for the subject and conditions in order to achieve his very individual yet amazingly inspirational approach to photography.

Our next meeting will take place on Monday 22nd January when we we will be holding our annual competitions for the Abel and Peter Clark Trophies.

This is a competition for a panel of three prints, or a three-part PDI, each set having a distinct link, theme or story with a trophy being awarded to the winner of each entry format. You may submit up to five entries, either five sets of prints or five PDIs, or a combination of the two formats . The judge Glyn Edmunds ARPS will mark each picture individually out of five, plus a mark out of five for the link value, giving a possible total of twenty.

Print mounts must be marked: LEFT CENTRE RIGHT to indicate their position when displayed. Each set of three prints or each three-part DPI must be given one overall title.

Print entries should be delivered to Tony Storey's house by noon on Sunday 21st January (please call him on 604689 to arrange a convenient delivery time).
