PDIs Final Round 2017-18 – The Results!

Well done to everyone who took part in our PDI (Projected Digital Images) competition for 2017-18. Last night, our guest judge, Paul Graber, reviewed the final round of the competition and picked out his favourite images of the night. Once again, there were plenty of entries and some cracking images, including some excellent 10-pointers! Well done to the TPS members whose images scored top marks: Peter Beard, Allister Frost (that’s me, awkward…), Roger Matthews, Neil O’Brien, Carole Mills, Clare Pickett and Brian Smith.

And, as this is round three, well-deserved congratulations are due to everyone who managed to enter all three rounds of the competition. It takes a lot of focus and perseverance to stay the course, so bravo to the 33 TPS members who achieved this distinction. Give yourselves a pat on the back, and now go for a lie down 🙂

And so, after three exhausting rounds, we have our PDI winners for 2017-18. The John Fox Trophy for Club Class PDIs will go to Malcolm Field, and the Philips Cup for Advanced Class PDIs will go to Sarah Bedwell LRPS. Big congratulations to you both!

You can see the final score tables here.

But, more importantly than the scores, here are a few of the judge’s favourite images from the night to help inspire your next photographic adventure. Enjoy!

Meeting Cancelled!

We’re very sorry, but we’ve had to cancel tonight’s TPS meeting (March 1st) due to the freezing conditions. Stay warm at home and we’ll look forward to seeing you next Thursday. Or wrap up and go out to take some amazing photos. Whatever you do, stay safe.

Important: Panel Competition Postponed

SCHEDULE CHANGE: With regret, we have had to postpone the Alec Braid Panel Competitions on 22nd February, and hope to reschedule as soon as possible. TPS Members who have already entered PDI’s on the PhotoEntry website or others who intended to enter prints into the competition should hold on to your images for inclusion in the rescheduled competition.

Note: The Photo Entry system has been temporarily closed but we’ll let everyone know when it reopens. Sorry for any inconvenience caused by this late change of plan.

Our very own Dr. John Nathan has kindly offered to step in with an illustrated talk on 22nd February 2018. More details to follow.

Mono Prints Competition Round 2 – The results!

Yesterday was another big night at TPS as we judged Round 2 of our Monochrome Prints competition. And, once again, we reviewed lots of entries and the quality was high. Well done to everyone who took part.

As convention demands our judge awarded scores to each of the images and I’ve shared below a few of his favourites. Special congratulations go to our 10 point scorers: Gary Coomber, Lesley Idle, Roger Matthews, Kerry Munroe, Dominic Murtagh, Allister Frost, John Nathan and Marcus Scottt-Taggart. Bravo!

Most importantly, we hope you all enjoyed your evening and, hopefully, picked up a few ideas to help you do even better next time. That’s what TPS is all about!

Now, enjoy a selection of some of our TPS members’ amazing photos. Click on any of the images to see them bigger, then click Back in your browser to return to this page:



TPS welcomes Ken Scott on 1st February 2018

On Thursday 1st February, TPS will welcome photographer, adventurer, and speaker Ken Scott to Godstone. During 2017, Ken walked almost 3000km along the entire length of the British coastline. At this special TPS talk he will share some of his favourite photographic memories from his hugely challenging, physical and emotional journey.

Ken also started his own 365 challenge—making a picture every day—in 2008, and now, ten years on, he’s still going strong and has renamed his challenge as ‘Project Infinity’. You can see some of Ken’s daily images on his website at http://touchingthelight.co.uk/project-infinity/.

Don’t forget: as this is the first Thursday of the month we’ll be meeting in the Hall behind the Baptist Church in Godstone, next to the Shell Service Station.

The meeting will begin at 8pm prompt, and will finish around 10pm.

Entry is free for TPS members and £5 per person for visiting non-members (including tea/coffee and maybe a biscuit!)
