Programme 2017

January

19     First Night

Bring in some of your favourite images (digital only please) or some of those you’ve shot during the Summer.

We’ll limit you to about 5 minutes to show what you have been up to (usually 1 image a minute) – depending on the number of images on the night. Maybe a special photography gift that Santa delivered will be in action by now – so you might want to share something from that, or you had a great holiday in some far flung part of the world, or you’ve just been relaxing at home and want to share your Christmas party

March

2     Workshop: Image Preparation

Your workflow – what you need to do between exposure and exhibition. File naming, cropping, image sizing, mounting, matting and sending entry details to the club

5   Excursion: Straight from the Camera

Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens
Organisers: Tariq, Ron, Bruce

16    Competition: Straight from the Camera

Any subject is eligible. However, the image exhibited, print or projected, must not have been altered in any way post exposure except resizing.

During the submissions to the club’s subcommittee back in the Spring several members said they had concerns over the emphasis placed by judges on post exposure editing or manipulation of images.

Some were opposed to the concept of editing and others simply had no access to the software to edit images. There was a cry for more images to be presented “straight from the camera”, with no editing carried out after the shutter button had been pushed.

This competition’s set subject is a response to that request.

So here are the rules.

For prints, no alteration AT ALL may be made to the image after exposure and before printing.

  • Printed images must be presented full frame. No cropping is allowed. If the image shot is 4:3 format or 3:2 format it must be printed in that format.
  • Images must be printed from the file originally captured by the camera.
    If you usually shoot in RAW you must be able to print from that RAW file. It may not be converted to JPEG TIFF or similar for printing. Or, shoot in a printable file format.
    For those having files professionally printed, the file submitted to the printer must be printable without alteration.
  • Prints displayed as monochrome must have been captured in that form.
  • The general club rules about size of prints still apply.

Digital images are allowed one alteration only. This is to allow the projected image to conform with our projection limitations

  • The recorded image file may be reduced to maximum of 1400 x 1200 pixels. It must still be presented full frame.
  • All the other print rules apply to projected images.

30     Peer Review/Critique Session

25     Workshop: Light painting

Light painting, or light drawing, is a photographic technique in which exposures are made by moving a hand-held light source while taking a long exposure photograph, either to illuminate a subject or to shine a point of light directly at the camera, or by moving the camera itself during exposure.

This club workshop will show you how and let you practise.
