We saw some wonderful images last night at our TPS PDI Competition (Round 1). There was a rich variety and it was especially exciting to see so many entries from our new members. Well done to everyone who took part!
Whether you agreed or disagreed with the judge is not important, what really matters is that you hopefully got some inspiration for your next photographic adventure and picked up a few tips on how do even better next time.
We’ll be featuring some of the photos on our Instagram and Facebook pages in future, but for now, here’s a reminder of the seven amazing pictures which all scored a perfect ’10’ from our guest judge Graham Johnston ARPS DPAGB. Maybe you’ll find inspiration in some of these:
CLUB (John Fox Trophy)
ADVANCED (Philips Cup)
Brilliant work TPS’ers! Our next competition is Colour Prints Round 1 on 12th October, which means that correctly formatted .jpg files of your entries need to be with Brian, our Internal Competition Secretary, by midnight on Monday 9th October.
You’d better get out shooting!
John Howard’s presentation about TPS Competitions from our 7th September 2017 Open Evening is now available to view here:
And don’t forget, if you have any questions or comments, simply get in touch with any of the committee members.
Brian, our Internal Competition Secretary, looks forward to receiving your PDIs for Round 1 by midnight on Monday 18th September. Have fun and good luck!
Ahoy! If you were at this evening’s Open Evening, you’ll have heard from our TPS Vice Chair, Roger Matthews, about the forthcoming trip on The Waverley Paddle Steamer. If you’re interested in joining Roger and other TPS’ers on this “Totally Unofficial Out And About” trip, the date is 6th October 2017 and full details can be found online at www.waverleyexcursions.co.uk. Sounds like there could be some interesting photo opportunities, not least being on board as the Waverley cruises under an open Tower Bridge. But there’s also a bar and restaurant on board, so there’ll be plenty of stuff to do!
If you’re interested, please book your own tickets for the 6th October sailing and make arrangements to meet Roger and the gang on the day. You can email Roger via this link.
A highly-trained, elite team of operatives from TPS will be at the Godstone Fete on August Bank Holiday Monday 28th August 2017. If you’d like to find out more about the club and discover how you could improve your photography, please come along to our stall and say hello. The fete takes place on Godstone Green from 11am to 5pm. There will even be a Donkey Derby so you can practice your (slow) sports photography! It’s going to be sunny though, so bring sunscreen!
Remember, the first event of our 2017-18 season will take place in the Godstone Baptist Church Hall (near the Shell Service Station) from 8pm on Thursday 7th September. New members and visitors are very welcome. To find out more drop us a message by clicking here.
A preliminary draft of our exciting programme of events for 2017-18 has now been published.
Further updates will follow in due course, but, for now, make sure you’ve got 8-10pm on Thursday 7th September blocked out in your diary for our kick-off Open Evening, which is at the Godstone Baptist Church, next to the Shell garage.
And check out the full year’s programme here.
