The Club’s third print competition of the current season was held on Wednesday 7 February, judged by John Wilcox LRPS CPAGB, and the results are now available on our Competitions Page or simply Click Here.
Congratulations to Shirley Eastwood for winning both the Colour and Mono sections of the Competition! Also, Bruce Liggitt was second in both sections, so a great result all round for both club members. The current Seasons scores for all members who have entered the competitions have also now been updated, so please check out your scores here.
Ely Photographic Club would like to wish all of its members and friends a Happy New Year, and hope that you get some great photo opportunities over the coming months!
EPC hosted a 4 way battle on Wednesday 6 December, with March, St. Neots and St. Ives visiting us to compete in a competition judged by Daphne Hanson DPAGB, APAGB. Ely won the competition overall, in an enjoyable and closely fought battle.
More results from the evening are available here
On Tuesday 21 November 2017 EPC competed against both Bottisham & Burwell and Melbourn photographic clubs, at Foxton Village Hall. It was good to see several EPC members attending the close-fought battle. Melbourn were victorious, and scored 316 points against B&B’s 310 and Ely’s 305 points. Well done to everyone whose prints were entered, but especially to Kevin for scoring a maximum 20 points with two of his prints.
The season’s second pdi competition was held on Wednesday 8 November, and there was a great turnout of 72 entries, quite a lot to be judged, which was done excellently by Nick Akers. Results are now available on the 2017/18 Seasons Scores page, and the winning images can be seen on the Images and Competitions page under the appropriate link.
On Wednesday 15 November we will be running an evening where members can get any help they need with their camera, or with processing or mounting their images. If you would like us to cover any particular subjects, please let us know in advance so that we can make the evening as helpful and informative as possible. You may for example want to learn more about Lightroom or Photoshop, have some of the settings on your camera explained, or you may want to know how to mount your prints or learn a technique like long exposures. The choice is yours, and you will be able to join small groups on the night with some of our more experienced photographers who will cover the subjects you need help with. There will also be the chance to have a chat to other members, and if the evening is successful, we will plan more of these evenings next season.
The season’s second pdi competition will be held on Wednesday 8 November, and as we have no meetings on either 25 October or 1 November, any pdi entries should be sent by email to James by Wednesday 1 November at the latest. In view of the large number of entries for the last competition, please note that of your maximum of 3 entries, you should indicate when emailing which of them is your 3rd choice, in case the competition has to be reduced to a maximum of two entries each.
