Last Call - Leatt Cup and Improvers/New Members Digital Image Competitions

Just a reminder that the 9th March is the dealine for entries to the Leatt Cup and the Improvers/New Members PDI Competitions.

All Leatt Cup print entries including the associated digital images should go to Allan (Highet). Improvers/New Members' digital entries should be emailed to Russell. Alison recently sent out an email with Allan and Russell's contact details.

Competition Rules for print entries and requirements for digital files can be found on the Competition Rules web page where you can download a PDF.

Both competitions will be held on the evening of the 6th April and will be judged by David Burgess. Recent results can be found on the Competition Images pages.

Next week, YPS member Neville Turton is giving a talk entitled, "My 4 Fs -- From Field and Village Into Camera and Prints". We all know the quality of Neville's prints and hopefully, he'll let us in on his secrets!

A week later sees another of our popular Project Nights. The theme is "Gritty Urban Environments". A reminder that images should be emailed to Alison rather than Russell for this one. You can also bring images on a thumbdrive on the night.

As a brief recap on the details that were on the email that Alison circulated recently, images should fit within a box measuring 1400 pixels horizontally by 1050 pixels vertically. They should be JPEGs in sRGB space.

Name the files as number_some title_your name.jpg (e.g. 1_gritty minster_freda bloggs.jpg). So, no leading zero and there's an underscore between the number and title and then title and name. The reason for this is so that images are projected in some sort of order rather than a single member's images being shown in one go.

First Meeting of 2016 and an Updated YPS Member Gallery

Hi folks. Don't forget that we kick off 2016 with a Project Night this week at YPS. The theme is "Patterns in Nature" and this can be interpreted in any way you like. 

As a brief recap on the details that were on the email that Alison circulated recently, images should fit within a box measuring 1400 pixels horizontally by 1050 pixels vertically. They should be JPEGs in sRGB space.

Name the files as number_some title_your name.jpg (e.g. 1_reflection in lake_freda bloggs.jpg). So, no leading zero and an underscore between the number and title and then title and name. The reason for this is so that images are projected in some sort of order rather than a single member's images being shown in one go.

Bring your images along on a USB stick on the night or you can email them to Russell using the address given in Alison's email.

Also new for 2016 is Roger Mockridge's updated gallery.

Any member can have a gallery page on the website. If you want one, email up to nine images to Russell. The images should be JPEGs in sRGB space and measure no more than 2048 pixels along the longest edge (either vertical or horizontal - for these images, it doesn't matter). Likewise, those of you who already have a gallery and want it updating, email a new set of images to Russell.

Next week we have YPS member Morris Gregory giving a talk entitled, "Not Just Fish". Morris is an accomplished underwater photographer but also turns his hand to other genres. Have a look at his gallery page.

You'll have noticed that this is a programme change. By the way, there have been a few enforced programme changes and an updated one will be available soon.

Finally, I've added a link to an excellent extreme macro-photography website run by Jonas Ingles-Le Nobel on our Photographic Techniques page (Resources > Photographic Techniques).
