What will 2019 bring?

Well 2018 was over in a flash, if you'll excuse the photography pun. It was certainly a year to take many positives for Brechin Photographic Society, and the prospect for 2019 is exciting. In just a couple of weeks we welcome Andy Hayes, our most decorated club member, to cast his judgement on our Rust competition, and decide the outcome of the Annual Image Competition for each of the three divisions. Maybe the idea of a 'Rusty Nail' is appropriate for the New Year festivities (picture from Peter Reilly) The 15th January is also the date for submissions of your images for "Print of the Year" - remember that this year entries are limited to just 3 prints - either 2 mono and 1 colour, or 1 m

Harvest Mice - something different to spend your Christmas money on?

Gillian Temple, CPAGB, has contacted us to advertise her harvest mice photography workshop. It certainly offers something different from they normal wildlife photography workshops, and we thought some people might be interested in checking it out. She is based in Kelty in Fife, so not too far to go for many of our members. She has sent the following information, but please do not hesitate to contact her directly if you are interested but would like more information. Harvest Mice Photography Workshop Thank you for enquiring about the Harvest Mice Photography Workshops. They are suitable for all level of photographers from the beginner to the seasoned pro.

Merry Christmas from BPS

I really hope everyone has had a great Christmas today, and that many of you will be out over the next few days trying out some new photography gear that might have been under the tree. Looks like the decent spell of weather may continue through to New Year. I'd also like to take this opportunity to wish every member the very best for 2019, and I hope it brings good health and enjoyable photography for you all. Thank you all for supporting me in my first month or so as president, it really is a great honour to lead such a great club. We have many more exciting things lined up for you at the club through until April, kicking off with guest speaker Gordon Rae on the 8th January, which will b

Gordon Rae - Wild at Heart - A Photographer's Journey - 08/01/19

After tomorrow night, we break for Christmas and New Year, but return on the 8th January 2019 with an exciting talk from award winning wildlife photographer, Gordon Rae from Lockerbie in Dumfries and Galloway. There is no doubt that Gordon will give us a fascinating talk, with plenty of fabulous and inspiring photographs to kick off 2019. Look forward to seeing as many people there as possible. Please have a look at Gordon's website for more images and details of his workshops etc.

RAW or JPEG? Members' night

I've lost count of the number of times people have asked whether they should shoot in RAW, JPEG, or both. I've also lost count of the number of people who profess to KNOW the right answer. Maybe it's just me, but I like to try and understand why rather than just be told an answer, so on Tuesday I'll try to explain some of the technical details, give some examples, and hopefully give you some evidence that will allow you to decide what file type you should shoot in. My talk will include an explanation as to why this photo of Bow Fiddle Rock is one of the images I'm most proud of taking... Jock will also present a 10 in 10 talk of some of his favourite images, and we'll look at the process o

People

Congratulations to the winners of the 'People' topic on Tuesday evening. Huge thanks to Joan Roy from Monifieth who braved the cold to come and deliver her feedback on our pictures - and very thorough feedback it was too. The Annual Image Competition now moves to the final round - 'Rust', to be judged in January by Andy Hayes. Andrew Hall has a big lead in division 3, but divisions 1 and 2 are close run things, with a number of potential winners. The Rust competition also has a record entry of 69 images, which is absolutely brilliant. Children at Play - div 1 winner by Ian Suttie This coming week we have the re-scheduled Christmas Buffet. It should be an enjoyable evening, but please rem
