Two different image submissions this week

The next Musselburgh Camera Club meeting will be at 7:30 on Thursday, 13th January 2022. This meeting will be an informal “Christmas Members Evening”, where we will discuss our Christmas-themed images and vote on our favourites. George Todd will be presenting the evening, so please email George JPEGs of your 3 Christmas-themed images by this Thursday morning. (Note that images sent on Thursday afternoon might not make it before George travels to Fisherrow.)

We have two different image submissions this week. George is also collecting images for the second set subject competition on the theme of “Travel In Scotland”. Please also send George 3 JPEG copies of your “Travel In Scotland” images by this Thursday.

Happy New Year! Next meeting Thursday, 6th January 2022.

A Happy New Year to all Musselburgh Camera Club members!

Our first meeting of the new year takes place this coming Thursday, 6th January at the usual time of 7:30pm in the Fisherrow Centre (and by Zoom). Malcolm Roberts will be judging the first of our set subject competitions on the theme of “reflections”.

Don’t forget this Thursday is also the submission date for our human portrait print competition, which this time will be a proper print competition. If you are coming to Fisherrow this Thursday, please bring your mounted prints with you. If you are planning to join by Zoom, please contact George and arrange a mutually convenient hand-over. Please also send George JPEG copies of the images you are entering. The competition will be judged by Gordon Scott on 27th January 2022. It has been a long time since we had a full competition with mounted prints, so this will be a chance to get back into practice.

See you on Thursday.

Change of Programme for 13th January 2022 & Human Portrait Competition

Sadly, we have had to cancel the “Match an Image” competition scheduled for 13th January 2022. After taking suggestions from members this week, we have decided to make 13th January a themed members’ evening. Everyone is encouraged to take some Christmas-themed photographs during the festive season and send up to 3 JPEGs to George Todd. George will shuffle them and show them on 13th January for comments and feedback. The event will be similar to our socially-distanced photoshoot roundup last year.

George is going to contact Gordon Scott and suggest that we make the “Human Portrait Print” competition a true print competition this year. This will give members a chance to practice and get feedback on their printing and mounting skills. You can either bring your prints to the Fisherrow Centre on 6th January or can arrange with George to hand them over at a convenient location. Don’t forget to send George 3 JPEGs as well.

I hope you all have a happy, successful and enjoyable Christmas break.
