COMPETITION : Taken on a Phone

Following up on the practical sessions we held and the first time our club has held a competition for images captured using a telephonic device.

Maximum of six images per author on the night.

Unleash your creativity!

Images & Music

This combined evening offers full rein to your creativity!

Your chance to offer the club an insight into your archive......set to music or other soundtrack. (Video sequences should, ideally, be no longer than 5 minutes in duration.) Please be prepared to talk about how you put your sequence together so that others may learn from your experience.

Images (print or projected) inspired by a piece of music

Theme 1 Take a Photo which is an alternative Album Cover for a Music Album. Whether Pop, Rock, Heavy Metal, Jazz, Country or Blues, albums often have dull, lacklustre covers and and I'm sure we could do better. We'd like you to take a photo which illustrates the Album title. It's your own interpretation so you can be as creative, literal or humorous as you like.

Theme 2 Take a Photo which illustrates a Song Title, from 'Stairway to Heaven' to 'My baby just cares for me' there's a song title out there asking for a Photo.

Theme 3 An image which is an illustrates a line or two of song lyric e.g. In Penny Lane 'There is a barber showing photographs'

Guess the Album Cover - repeated by popular request. Offer an image and those present need to guess which album or track it represents.

A few notes that might help...

There's no outside judge so no stress. You can reveal the Album, Song or Lyric you've interpreted or ask club members to guess on the night. We're looking for your imagination, your interpretation and your creativity rather than technically perfect photos. You can use images from your archive and linked to an album cover (snow photos for The Beatles - White Album, for instance, but new photos would be good too. Any of your music-themed photos can be entered into subsequent monthly competitions.

PRACTICAL | Focus Stacking

This week, EHHPS’s own Rick Beresford hosts a session on Focus Bracketing / Focus Stacking, based on a highly successful evening he ran at Northfields some time ago.

The evening will start off with a presentation by Rick covering various techniques, equipment and software packages, amply illustrated with photographic examples.

We’ll then offer a couple of tabletop setups, so do bring your cameras so that you can practise the techniques yourself.

A macro lens would be desirable but not essential.

SUMMER EVENT : Trip to Dungeness (with overnight)

A bit like the Highcliffe trip, but without the competition with a local club, the idea is to take photos en route, explore the local area (including Derek Jarman’s garden), have dinner and stay in a local hotel and then travel back the following day with a few more photo stops.

 

Please contact Kristin or Amanda if you are interested.

Millennium Competition : Projected and Printed Images

The Club is the Judge...

Over the course of the evening, all of the print and projected images which have scored 20's in the Club competitions throughout the year are shown.   The images are then scored by everyone present to elicit an overall winning print and an overall winning projected image.

There is already a record of projected images scoring 20 so these images will already exist on file.   However, prints scoring 20 will need to be brought in on the night - no later than 7.45pm please, so that we have time to display them.

Come and join in this celebration of a year of fabulous photography!
