On Thursday 15 April 2021 the A45 Trophy external competition was held via Zoom and 8 local photographic clubs competed. Each club submitted 8 images and they were judged by John Wilcox. The standard of images was excellent and there were a wide variety of different genres and styles.
Of a possible maximum score of 160, two clubs each scored 145 points. The two Clubs were Ely Photographic Club and Bottisham and Burwell Photographic Club, and it was therefore mutually agreed to share the trophy this year.
For this month’s meeting, we have arranged for Jonathan Vaines to demonstrate some key Photoshop techniques including the use of some of the blend modes for lightening, dodging and burning and halo removal. Jonathan will then show how to use layers to add elements, apply textures, etc and how to use the ‘Blend If’ feature. Blend modes are one of the most powerful tools in Photoshop, so the evening will be very instructive and there will be something for everyone to learn whatever type of photography they do.
The results of the second of our post – Christmas pdi series, held on 3 March 2021 are now available on our Competitions page or just Click Here
