About-Us

The 2nd Monday of the month is our competition night.

  • Our Competition Program is available from our website.
  • There are 3 grades, Advanced, A and B. B Grade is usually for beginner photographers.
  • We have photos presented both in print form as well as Digital (EDI) option. (EDI – Electronic Data Images)
  • Both Digital and Print contests require you to enter online on this website and include a digital copy of each entry. This will be displayed in an image gallery on the website
  •  All photographs are displayed and critiqued by the judge on the night. Most judges provide very beneficial feedback, from which we all learn
  • At the end of the year we run our “Photo of the Year”competition (POTY). The photos entered in this competition must be photographs that have been entered in competitions throughout the year.

The 4th Monday of the month is our tutorial night.

  • We have had many and varied tutorials and continue to do so every month.
  • Suggestions from members as to what tutorials they would like to have are very welcome.

Some good information on how nature images are judged.

A Guide for Nature Photography Judges

Scoring Guide for Nature in PSA Interclub

Scoring-Guide-for-Nature-in-PSA-Interclub.pdf

Both these documents can be found under Tutorials under Club Rules and Documents Button on the Home page of our website.

Some good tips for submitting our images to external competitions and inter club competitions. Happy reading and submit your best images for next PSA interclub.

PSA Interclub Nature Rd 2 Results

We have been knocked off our perch after this round so will have to put in a strong performance in Round 3 to get back on top. The Nature Director sent an excellent PDF about Nature Judging with these results and I shall circulate it to our selection team before the next round selection process. Congratulations to Colleen and Mike Martin on their awards.

Please go on to our website now and enter your best Nature images for Round 3 which closes at the end of March.

A new opportunity for your photography.

We are going to introduce a portfolio sector into our club.

The idea will be to all choose your own theme and provide a statement of intent.( This is basically what your images are depicting; the story they tell)

 Choose 6 or maybe 10 images that follow that theme( we will discuss this on 1st meeting). Create a final image which is a collage of the 6/10 images presented as a summary with images arranged to create one cover image. 
The idea of meeting is to help critique each other’s images and help with ideas on the best images to use once a theme and intent is known. We will have till October to complete these and can decide to present to all the club or not. Members will get help with editing ideas and possibly improve their art. 
I have been able to secure the first Monday of the month commencing 5th April in the Auditorium commencing 7pm.(I realise this is Easter Monday, but I don’t want to delay this any longer)

The first meeting will be a discussion of ideas. Start researching portfolio ideas. There is no limit here, you may wish to use images you have from a holiday eg life in a Vietnamese village; or set out to capture something new eg clouds; hats and emotion,; suburban architecture; trees; time: blue; doors and windows: wetland birds; the night sky; kids in sport; fresh; autumn; weather; abstracts in nature etc

I am hoping that we have many members who will come along and make the most of exploring a subject that they have an interest in.
