Club Meeting 14.11.13

George Neilson last week mentioned the Scottish Photographic Society’s Club Digital Championship at Stirling on 17th Nov. (Details on notice board)

See  for full details.

George gave us a lot of constructive comments last week – I would suggest that if you agree with his comments to do some further work on your images and if you then think that it improves it, send me a digital copy and then I can update the Club’s Data Base, thus improving the standard of our work.

George also mentioned the mounted presentations – Charlie Briggs held a print mounting workshop – 12 members put their names down, but only five turned up – this was not good – if you cannot make a commitment then it is only decent to advised the organiser of the event. There seems to be a need of further training so Charlie has agreed to have a further workshop if there is enough interest.

On Monday 2nd Dec. (not Tuesday as per syllabus) there is the ‘4 way Interclub Comp’ to be hosted by Edinburgh Photographic Society. They are keen to know how many of our members will attend, so I have put a notice on the board, so please put your name down if you are able to go and support our club.

Kirkcaldy – Monday evening proved to be good for the MCC


Digital Projection – total scores

MCC                           221

Kirkcaldy                     202


MCC                           231

Kirkcaldy                     224

Thus MCC triumphed with a total score of  452  against Kirkcaldy’s of 426

Anita Nutter got 20 for ‘Frozen Tulips’ (Digital) and awarded ‘Best Digital Image’

Steven Beard  got 20 for ‘Splash Dance’ (Print)

We now need to build up a further set on 30 images for the return visit in April 2014 – so let’s start working towards this goal.

Last night everyone  was a ‘Judge’ – members were free to say what they like about the images, hopefully constructively. This proved to be an enjoyable and interesting evening.

Next week please bring in up to three ‘Human Portrait Image’ prints to be judged on 5th Dec. Please also bring a CD with images or e mail them to me.

We also have the Scottish Photographic Federation’s Print & Projected winning images for 2013. If we can build up our Data Base we can have a go at a submission for our images next year.

Joe Fowler is holding a further workshop at Southfields this Saturday – the subject is ‘Sport Photography’ – 10am – Noon.    For more info
