Alice Black Award – November 2018 – “A Wet Day in the Horse Yards” by John Stewart

To perpetuate the memory of our late member Alice Black, the club has introduced the ‘Alice Black Memorial Trophy’ to be contested each year on a perpetual basis.

At each month’s Aggregate Competition the judge will select an image from all those entered as the monthly Alice Black Image – they will use their own criteria to select the image regardless of the score given.  All images submitted in the Aggregate Competition have the potential to become a possible winner of the Trophy as there is no restriction on the grade of the entrant or the medium in which the image is presented.

For November 2018 the Alice Black has been awarded to John Stewart for his print “A wet day in the horse yards”.  This image was entered in the Salon Grade Mono Set Subject: “Motion” Print section.

Our judge, Allan Rosser commented “Well done, slow enough to show the drops dropping, but not slow enough for other things to blur. The progression of dark to light enhances the image.”

TPS Club Meeting – 13 November 2018

Our next club meeting is at 7:00pm this coming Tuesday, 13th November 2018.  There have been 131 images submitted by 46 club members for our November 2018 Aggregate Competition which will be judged this evening by Allen Rosser.

The Set Subject for this month is “Motion”.

We look forward to catching up with you all this evening.

And don’t forget that entries for the December 2018 Competition are required by 12:00 midnight on the 13th November 2018 – the set subject for this month is “Fairs, Shows, Markets”.

Coffee Catch-up Night

Don’t forget Tuesday night (6th November) is our first Coffee Catch-up at Jilly’s Cafe, 6-7pm.

Our first night will be about making sure we cover what ‘you’ want over the next year.

Each night will discover a new micro-skill, that we will learn about….them put into practice!

The first meeting of the month will introduce the micro-skill that will become our online photo competition subject! That way you learn, do, show!

This first month, we will be learning about:
White Balance

It’ll only cost you a gold coin and the purchase of a coffee/drink, or coffee and cake (Jilly’s has marvelous cakes!)

Meet you at Jilly’s, Margaret Street, just down from the Neil Street intersection. 6pm. Tuesday night.
