Newsletter 4th February 2020

Hi BPS members

Meeting Report February 4th - Nifty 50

Nifty 50: A new meeting subject received a decent turnout of members and an even better entry of 58 images. Some entries weren’t exactly 50mm but it was decided to continue and treat all entries as though they were taken at 50mmish Should we hold another such competition, we must make the criteria clearer. Nevertheless, it lead to a fun evening. The Images were projected and cycled through a couple of times to allow members to judge what they considered to be the best entry. Points were allocated for the top five and from members’ choices. Peter Owen’s entry took top place. Leigh Ann took 2nd with her “Drooling “Baby” picture. I sneaked into 3rd with the “Sax Player Joe”. Jim was 4th with his close up “Autumn Leaf” shot and Leigh Ann Came fifth with “Zoe”.

Next meeting February 11th - Live Lecture – Devon Coastal Photography by Gary Holpin. Once again, this is an open meeting so please feel free to invite your family, friends, and workmates to join us.

Ken wants your February monthly competition entry. PLEASE ensure you set your images to the correct size and colour profile sRGB including a digital copy of your print entry. If you need help please let me know. If you don’t have a copy of the entry form I will have spares available on the night.

Subjects: Print competition – “Monochrome”; Digital – “Open” to be judged by Marija Lees.
