Learn Flash Photography at the April 1st Meeting

Sandy Gorney will host a presentation on  flash photography by showing a 30 minute video on the basics of flash.  After the video you can “learn by doing” by using Sandy’s equipment to experiment with some of the concepts shown in the video.  One of the best websites to learn about SLR hot shoe flash is David Hobby’s strobist.com.

Image Show and Competition Entries

24 02 2011

Just to clarify, each member can submit up to six images for each monthly image show.  These images can be anything you want, named anything you want, sized anyway you want, but it is preferable that the  SPNC Photography Club Digital Projection Division Rules procedure be followed.  Images should be sent to
sjgorney-spncphotoclub@yahoo.com at least a few days before the first Friday meeting.

Each member can submit up to three images for each monthly competition. A maximum of two images can be submitted in any one category.  Entries must follow the SPNC Photography Club Digital Projection Division Rules on the Documents page.

Identical images can be submitted in both the image show and competition but they must be at least two months apart.  This is to ensure that the judges aren’t influenced by viewing an image in competition that was shown in the image show two weeks prior.





New Procedures Posted for Competition Night

24 02 2011

There is a new category in addition to NA, CG, CC, and MG.  Assignment (AS) category is for images that conform to the monthly assignment and include NA, CG, CC, and MG.  Further details are in the SPNC Photography Club Digital Projection Division Rules on the Documents page.

Two new procedures are there as well and pertain to use of the photoclubservices.com website.  They are How to view results from a SPNC Competition and Upload Instructions for SPNC Competitions.
