Next Meeting – May 12th – Mix and Match Three Way Competition

Our next meeting is the Mix and Match competition against Witney and Wantage. We held an internal version of this a few weeks ago which generated over 200 images. We have now selected 50 of the best for this event. The judge is Alan Copeland who was with us a few weeks ago and always enters into the spirit of this competition, so it should be a very entertaining evening. As you will be aware, the judge may be “open to persuasion” if there are sufficient voices to make the case. The other clubs will also be doing their bit too!

Next Meeting – April 28th – Three on a Theme Competition

This competition is for both PDI and print entries.

For the prints, you can mount the three on a single piece of card, or have three separate prints. If the latter, these must be labelled on the back with the position in which should be placed, i.e.. Left, Centre and Right.

The set should have an overall title. You can enter up to two sets of prints. Please send your titles to Jon Orme  j.orme AT virgin.net by Wednesday.

For the PDIs, please email your images to Peter phphillips97 AT hotmail.com by Monday. Again, label each image with its position (L.C.R). Each image will be displayed separately, and then as a set. The organisation of this is quite time consuming, hence the earlier deadline. Please give each set a title. You can enter up to two sets of PDIs.

Originally from Staffordshire in the UK, it was when Glyn was first introduced to Photoshop in early 2005 that his life took on a completely different path. With a somewhat tenacious personality and hunger to learn, a few short months later he found himself making his first trip across to the USA to attend the Photoshop World 2006 Conference and Expo in Las Vegas. The trip had a profound effect on Glyn being exposed to a completely new world; the world of creativity and expression where the only limitations placed on you are by yourself.

Returning from the USA, Glyn completely absorbed himself in Photoshop, studying and practicing during any spare moments and soon found himself being hired to retouch other photographer’s work and it was this that naturally lead him into Photography and his first DSLR.

Fast forward a few years and Glyn is a Photographer, Retoucher and Trainer with clients ranging from the BBC, SKY, FOX and Air New Zealand, to Physique Athletes and Musicians. He attributes it all to a combination of hard work, the guidance of incredibly talented and generous friends and a mind set of always wanting to improve and that there is ALWAYS something to learn.

Next Meeting – March 31st – Print Competition, Open Subject

Next Thursday we have our final print competition of the season.
Every member can enter up to three images for each of the colour and mono sections. As usual images can be on any subject.
Please email the titles to our Print Competition Secretary,  Jon Orme at  j.orme@virgin.net before next Wednesday, stating whether each title is for the colour or mono competition.
If you are able to deliver your prints to his house ahead of the evening, that is a great help.
Our most recent print competition attracted a very large number of prints and we look forward to another busy evening!
