Skills Night – 25th September – Change

Due to unforeseen circumstances, our next Skills Night (25th September) will not be Macro, as previously advertised. Instead, we will be exploring light art, using pixel stick illumination. Please bring along your camera, tripod and shutter release cord/remote (if you have one).
 
Also, I can produce any special imagery or words, that you would like to illuminate behind your subject. Please email the President with your ideas.
 
Also, bring along a warm jacket in case it is cool outside.

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.
