It's Christmas, but there is good news too!

Well Christmas crept up on us. Tomorrow night sees the Christmas buffet for those who are attending, but we don't have another club night until the 9th January. On that night we have the always entertaining knockout competition - but we are seriously lacking entries this year. There's still loads of time to get two digital images to Ben for this, so please don't hesitate to have a go. Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! note - the good news is that from Friday onward the days start to get longer, so there should be more and more opportunities for photography again!

Members' Night - 12/12/17

This week we have a members' night, which is largely open to discuss anything photography that might be on your mind. Ken is going to give a brief overview of what the recently released ON1 Photo RAW software can do, and why you might fancy it as a more affordable alternative to photoshop. Ben also has some images from the two club outings at House of Dun and Scurdie Ness (although the latter was sooooo cold, frozen fingers were struggling with cameras!) Scurdie Ness Lighthouse by Lindsay Cameron Apart from that, we will have tables around the room for people to mingle and ask questions. Feel free to bring your camera along, or think of some questions you'd like to ask others. Sharing know

It's a Knockout

Tuesday 12th is the night for submission of images for the annual knockout competition. For new members, this is a fun contest held usually on the first night back after new year, where the audience becomes the judge, and images are pitted against each other until we are left with one winner. Please submit two PDIs (projected digital images) to Ben at bpscomps@gmail.com. Tuesday is listed as the deadline, because it's the last club night of the year, but realistically, anything submitted before Christmas will be fine. It's a great opportunity to submit something that you might not normally consider for a competition, be it comical, experimental or unusual in some way. Equally, if you've n

Scurdie Ness Outing - Sunday 10th Dec

This coming Sunday we have our second outing of the year, at Scurdie Ness. For those who like their engineering and history, Scurdie Ness Lighthouse was built by David and Thomas Stevenson, and commissioned in 1870, and is an excellent example of a Stevenson lighthouse - always excellent focal points for photographs. While still in use, the house and grounds are privately owned, but there are many photo opportunities around the perimeter of it, and along the rocky headland it sits on. The weather forecast is for cold and sunny with a reasonable breeze, and while it is low tide just after 1pm, we are approaching a neap tide, so there should be plenty of opportunity for long exposures and im

Competition Time

Tomorrow night (5th December) sees the visit of Mike Hall from Torphins to give his verdict and scores for the 'Lone Tree' competition. The outcome will lead on nicely to the fourth and final round of the Annual Image Competition 'The Journey', for which prints and PDIs should be handed in tomorrow. These will then be passed to judge Bob Humphreys. In other competition news, Brechin were unfortunately unsuccessful in our bid to retain the Bon Accord Challenge, despite a strong start. We ultimately fell some way behind winners Bon Accord, and narrowly behind Deeside Camera Club.
