The Carnoustie 20/20

Thank you to everyone who endured my presentation on the plans for this years' image exchange with Carnoustie Photogroup. Each year, to date, we have swapped 20 images picked at random from competition entries, and the results have been interesting - but the PDI sized jpeg images leave little scope for creativity. This year, therefore, we want to try to get more out of the exchange, by using RAW or full sized, unedited JPEG files for the swap. We are looking for members to submit RAW or unedited JPEG files before the 12th November. So this is an outline of the plan, with deadlines and dates. • 12th November Members’ Night – We will discuss our 20 images as a group, and make some ‘on the ho

#instawhit?

Tonight Kevin Thomson gave us a brilliant '10 in 10' talk about instagram, showcasing the photography of some of his favourite instagrammers, and explaining a bit about how the platform works as a place to share images, gain feedback and seek inspiration. You can now find the club on instagram at @brechinps hopefully lots more to come on there in the future! The page also now follows all the pages featured by Kevin, so follow us and they'll be easy to find! Start tagging your photos with #brechinps too. Kevin has shared his presentation, so you can look back through and look up the photographers he mentioned, as well as explore the hashtags he posted at the end. It's a pdf file, but all t

Brechin 2020

As many of you will know, June 13th 2020 will mark the celebration of 800 years of Brechin Cathedral. While we haven't been about for quite that long, we are one of the oldest camera clubs in Scotland, and as a part of the Brechin community for 131 years, it seems fitting that we contribute something towards the celebrations. We are continuing to liaise with the Brechin 2020 Committee, and at present have a couple of potential projects to explore further. Our annual exhibition runs from the 4th May until the 2nd June at the Townhouse Museum - perfectly timed for the run up to the big celebration. We would therefore like to dedicate one room of our exhibition to images of or about the Cathe

Judgement Day is nigh

The weeks seem to be flying by, and the judging of our first competition of the year is already upon us! We are delighted to welcome back Allan Gawthorpe LRPS EFIAP/s DPAGB from Aberdeen to the club. Allan has been a regular judge and speaker in the past, but hasn't been for a couple of seasons, so it will be great to hear his expert feedback and advice again. Allan has a lot of images to get through - so we'll aim to start sharp at 7:15. The last time Allan visited the club, he judged our Shoreline' competition in 2016, and while my memory is somewhat vague, I believe these images - Seaside Rocks by Iain McLachlan and Sweeping Shoreline by Jennifer Moffat were the joint winners from Divi
