Main Project and End of Season results

On Tuesday night, Steve Whittaker ARPS returned to the club to discuss our entries for the Main Project, and his feedback was as constructive and thought provoking as always. This season was a close run thing, but Steve finally chose Ian Bain's project entitled Claymore Blacksmiths as his winning project, with Jennifer Moffat's Toys and Games a very close second. Kevin Thomson's New York set and Ben Freeman's Rattray Coastguard Cottages images were 3rd equal. Claymore Blacksmiths by Ian Bain - 1st Place Toys and Games by Jennifer Moffat - 2nd Place New York by Kevin Thomson - 3rd= Rattray Coastguard Cottages by Ben Freeman - 3rd= This competition concludes the club competition season, and

Main Project feedback

Tonight we are delighted to welcome back Steve Whittaker to the club to offer his feedback on our Main Project submissions. A slightly disappointing entry this year (perhaps due to the amount of other competitions on the go), but nevertheless a lot of pictures for Steve to talk about, and the quality of the entries is terrific. Steve's feedback is always really constructive and helpful, so even if you didn't enter, come along tonight and I'm sure you will learn something positive along the way. Below is Iain McLachlan's winning set of images from last season's Main Project. I hope people will be inspired by the variety of images on show tonight, and by Steve's comments. I invited Dawn Blac

Perhaps slightly less exciting than the recent South Africa v England Twenty20 series, but no less entertaining, this week we welcome members of Carnoustie Photo Group to join in our discussion of the images we exchanged earlier in the season. This year we have sought to make the process more meaningful, by exchanging RAW/unedited JPEG images, which has given much more scope to be creative with the editing process. Hayley and I were at Carnoustie Photo Group last Thursday to present the outcomes, and it was really interesting to see how two groups of photographers often tackled the images in the same way - and sometimes completely differently.

Print of the Year Winners

Thank you to everyone who came along to the judging of the Print of the Year competition tonight. The standard of photography gets better and better. We are very grateful to Roy Robertson HonFRPS for judging for us again, and providing such in depth feedback - there was a lot to learn from his comments on all the images tonight I thought. I have asked Roy for a copy of his scoresheet, so will let you have the scores ASAP, but the winners were as follows: - Colour Print of the Year: 1st Place and winner of the Kays Salver - Ian Bain with Lilac Breasted Roller Mono Print of the Year: 1st Place and Winner of the B&W Salver - Anne May with Medicine Man In the Colour Print of the Year, the foll

Print of the Year 2020

Tomorrow night is the penultimate judging night of the year, with the flagship Colour and Mono Print of the Year competitions being decided. We are delighted to be welcoming Roy Robertson HonFRPS to the club again to give his verdict on our prints, and to choose the winners. There is no question that the quality of images improves year after year, and it promises to be a fascinating evening, with one of the country's top judges. Last year both trophies were won by Hayley-Jane Freeman. Who will be triumphant tomorrow? The Silent Witness by Hayley-Jane Freeman - Colour POTY 2019 Weary by Hayley-Jane Freeman - Mono POTY 2019
