Travel to Dalveen via old road and meet with some Stanthorpe members at 
the Jim Mitchell Park -9.45 to 10.00.

Go to Railway tunnel for photos (30 minutes max)

Travel to Thulimbah to Suttons for coffee. Could be some good photo 
opportunities there.

Go to Stanthorpe to photograph –  Big Thermometer, Mt Marley, War 
Memorial, Sentimental Rocks.  If we get away from Suttons early we can 
come via Amiens and visit the start of the Legacy Centre.

Meet with Stanthorpe members at 12.45 for lunch. Venue to be decided. 
I’ll check out a couple this week.

Toowoomba members drive home stopping along the way for dinner.

The aim will be to car pool. If we could have drivers (with spare spaces) contact me, I can offer up spaces to those interested. If you need transport, similarly, contact me and I will put you in contact with a driver, if one makes themselves available. 


Thank you.

New TPS Understudy Judge

I’d like to be the first to congratulate Dr. Jenny Graff, on behalf of all members and the committee, for her acceptance as an Understudy Judge (USJ) with the Photographic Society of Queensland (PSQ).

Her very varied and highly-regarded portfolio came back with unanimous acceptance from the Judges’ Executive.

Well done Jenny, we look forward to your judging into the future, and best of luck.

Skills Night – 28 August 2018

Our next Skills Night is being held on this coming Tuesday night, the 28 August 2018 at DeMolay House at 7:00pm.

This month Tryg Helander will be providing training to beginner members on the use of your basic camera settings, with a focus on the exposure triangle.

Additionally, Graham Harris will be running a post-processing session aimed at answering any questions you have on this aspect of image preparation for competition.  So bring your questions and we will look to answer these.

For this month the Image Challenge is “Of the Ground”.  Please send up to five images for this Challenge, together with up to five images for the Field Day and five for the Favourites to be included in the Skills Night audio-visual to me at graham_harris@westnet.com.au by 6:00pm on Monday 27th August 2018.

September 2018 Competition Entries

Due to an unexpected outage of the MyPhotoClub website last Sunday (12 August 2018) a number of images uploaded by members of Toowoomba Photographic Society for the September 2018 competition could not be accessed through the website for judging.

This problem has now been rectified although I have re-opened the competition for September 2018 in order for each of you to check that all images you have entered are there.  The competition will be kept open until 6:00pm on Monday 20 August 2018 so that you can check your images are there.  Following this they will be submitted for judging.

Additionally, some of our members have also uploaded images several months into the future.  These also became inaccessible but this problem now appears rectified.  Please check if your images are there if you are one of these members who has already uploaded images into future competitions.
