Well the results are in and we did extremely well. We came second in our Group B and third overall when you take Group A scores into consideration, we came third overall. Out of our six entries, our members achieved four awards, more than any club in our group. Congratulations Wangi. If you have not already done so, would you please submit two creative images in the PSA Interclub (3) comp and lets see if we can get to number one.

Warren presentation will be about lighting for portrait photography, both natural and artificial light. He will explain how to use various light modifiers and why you would use them, also the principles of lighting and show some examples of my work. Warren joined Newcastle Photographic Society in the late 1980’s and later was secretary and president for a number of years. Warren began photographing seriously in 1985 to document a bicycle trip from Melbourne to Rockhampton shooting Kodachrome 64 with a Pentax ME super SLR. He became a full time photography business in 1994 shooting mostly people and is still doing so 24 years later. Warren started Newcastle Photography College in 2008 and have taught over 1000 local photographers in that time. He love every minute of his job and teaching others to aspire to the same in their photography.

Below is a PDF of the people who judged and the images selected to represent our club highlighted in orange.
As we are only permitted to use one image from each member, there were some higher scoring images which were not able to be used. We will save those for the next time.
Well done everybody and thanks to the people who submitted images and to those who voted.
Cheers Ian Coordinator PSA Interclub

Message for all Advanced and A grade members.
This comp is now ready for judging. You have until midnight tomorrow Friday 12th April to complete your scoring and I will then close judging and submit our club entries. Once you navigate to the scoring page, it is a fairly quick process. Please get involved and help select our club entries.
Procedure is – Log in, go to members, then competitions. Scroll to this competition and click the Blue scoring button. You then click on the Green button for this comp. You click on the first image and it will display the image with a row of scoring buttons along the top numbered 1 – 5. To score you just click the number button to score that image. You score your own entries as normal. When you have scored the first image a score will show and the next image will be displayed. Continue through the 30 entries.
Guide for allocating scores:
1 Does not meet the definition (see definition below) 2 Below standard 3 Acceptable image 4 High standard and possible inclusion 5 High standard and a definite inclusion
Scores will be totalled and the best six images from six different members will be selected.
Remember that story telling is most important followed by all the usual technical aspects. PSA Nature Definition below:
Nature photography is restricted to the use of the photographic process to depict all branches of natural history, except anthropology and archaeology, in such a fashion that a well-informed person will be able to identify the subject material and certify its honest presentation. The story telling value of a photograph must be weighed more than the pictorial quality while maintaining high technical quality.
Human elements shall not be present, except where those human elements are integral parts of the nature story such as nature subjects, like barn owls or storks, adapted to an environment modified by humans, or where those human elements are in situations depicting natural forces, like hurricanes or tidal waves.
Scientific bands, scientific tags or radio collars on wild animals are permissible. Photographs of human created hybrid plants, cultivated plants, feral animals, domestic animals, or mounted specimens are ineligible, as is any form of manipulation that alters the truth of the photographic statement.
