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!)

Last chance to join one of our TPS 2018 Challenges

We’re almost halfway through January already, and it’ll soon be Christmas 😉

So, what are you waiting for? If you’ve not yet joined one of our TPS 2018 Challenges, there’s still time to get in on the act.

As a reminder, we’ve three, yes three, Flickr groups this year, each with a different level of intensity:

If you’d like to share one photo each day (it’s really not as difficult as it sounds!), you can join TPS365.

 

Or, to share one photo each week (ideally by Sunday of each week), you can join TPS52.

 

And finally, if you prefer life in the slow lane, you can share one photo each month in TPS12.

 

You can join as many groups as you like. For joining instructions, see my previous post here, but I’ve now simplified things in the groups so joining should be no more difficult than signing in to Flickr (create an account first if you’ve not used it before), then locating the group you’d like to join and clicking ‘Join Group’. We recommend you do this on a computer/laptop, rather than through the Flickr app which may lack some of the features needed to join these groups. Any issues, contact one of the group admins or ask for help at one of our Thursday meetings.

And don’t worry if you’ve missed a few days or even weeks or maybe even months by the time you read this. Thankfully there are no bitter and twisted judges inside TPS12/52/365, only lovely friendly TPS members sharing their photos.

Have fun!

Colour Prints Competition Round 2 – The results!

Well done to everyone who took part in this week’s Colour Prints (Round 2) Competition. All entrants should have received a summary of the scores by email, courtesy of our new-fangled (and rather excellent!) Photo-Entry competition tool. If you haven’t yet seen the full scores, they are now available on our website here.

In time-honoured fashion, we’ve shared a few of the judge’s favourite images from the night below. If your image appears here, bravo! If it doesn’t, don’t worry, there’ll soon be another opportunity to enjoy celebrity and fame at our next competition night! 😉
