Just a quick reminder the first meeting of the new season for Norfolk Photography Group will be this Thursday, at 19:30 in the Act Centre, Aylsham.
We are fortunate to have Roger Hance FRPS to give us a talk.
“WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS”
This talk is all about entering national and international exhibitions. It came about when my own camera club asked me to give them a presentation on the subject. As well as showing some of my successful exhibition images, I decided to ask a few of my `friends` from the exhibition circuit ,if they would be kind enough to let me have a few of their images to give the talk as broad a view as possible to show the type of image that is gaining awards at exhibitions.
I decided that rather than just show the club my `finished exhibition image`, it would be interesting to show them the original raw file, so that they could then see what I started with, and what I finished with ! I then asked some of the other photographers who were helping me if they could also send me their `original raw files` as well .
This has resulted in a very interesting and informative talk that gives not only a good insight into the type of image necessary to gain acceptance at exhibitions, but also shows that sometimes, the finished article is quite remarkably different from the one when the shutter button is pressed!”
