Urgent – Call for Nature entries for our first PSA Interclub

Our club has been approved to enter the Nature Interclub at PSA.

Exciting News – we are about to start our PSA Interclub journey.

There is a deadline for you to submit one Nature Image by 6pm tomorrow, Tuesday 15th.

Entries will be the same size as club entries and we will be selecting six images from six different people to represent the club.

The link button to enter is on the club Open Competitions Page above the regular club comp buttons.

 

Please get on board with this so we can get off to a good start.  The first round of the Nature Interclub was won by Belmont !!

I want to see images from all three grades please.  You do not have to be a member of PSA and remember it costs you nothing and is only one image so let’s see your best !!

NEW – PSA Interclub Competitions

 

The Photographic Society of America (PSA) Interclub Competitions

 

The Wangi Camera club has just become a club member of PSA with the specific purpose of entering the international interclub competitions run by PSA during the year.

 

Our PSA Membership details are

 

Wangi Workers Camera Club
MEMBER ID: 993439
01/09/2019 – 9 Jan 2019
City: Kilaben Bay, State/Province: NSW, Country: AUSTRALIA
Website: https://wangi.myphotoclub.com.au

 

We are the second club in our area after Belmont 16s to join PSA.

 

I have undertaken the responsibility of being the coordinator for our club and am excited that this will provide a great opportunity for members to enter their images against other clubs from all over the world at no cost to the entrant.

 

There are five interclub digital divisions and I am registering for all of these.

 

Open                                  (Four rounds per year)

Creative                             (Three rounds per year)

Nature                               (Three rounds per year)

Photojournalism               (Four rounds per year)

Photo Travel                     (Three rounds per year)

 

We do not have to participate in all of these as we are joining mid stream so to speak, so we can enter a few to get an idea how it works and then when the PSA Interclub new year commences (usually December), we can decide to go for all of them or maybe just some.

 

In each round, 10% receive awards and 10% receive HM Ribbons.

 

We can only submit six images in each round and these can be by six members or two from one member and four from four members or any other combination as long as one member submits no more than two images.  I would like to see six members submitting in each division but if we are short of images we will allow doubles.  This is how Belmont have set up theirs.

 

I want to encourage as many members to participate as possible and we will work out a selection process to choose our entries and an entry box on our website to submit entries.

 

All members of our club might decide that they enter in one or two divisions or all if they wish but that depends on where the individual members feel their strengths lie.

I will put out a call for images with details of sizes etc when the time comes.

 

I have a new email address  for  PSA dealings and would like any comments, discussion and expressions of interest from members interested in taking part.

Camera Skills Workshops 2019… we need your input for topics

We had great feedback from the Camera Skills Workshops that Mike Martin led last year.  Mike is willing to run some more this year, but before we make arrangements, book venues, line up tutors etc we would like your feedback on what you would like to learn.  

Please think about it.  

Would you like a rerun of the workshops last year for those who missed out… or would you like a repeat to help it all sink in?

Were there topics we ran last year that you would like to explore in more detail?

Or is there something new you would like to learn about your camera technique in a hands on environment?

We’ll want your feedback either by email to Susan (reply to the email notification is fine), or at club night next Monday.  Workshops are likely to be planned for March on Saturdays.

Thanks everyone

2019 competition entries

Our application is now available to accept entries for January and February next year. At this stage only those 2 months will accept entries as Colin is in the process of doing major updates which will come into effect from March. Under the new guidelines EDI entries will close 9 days before the competition. Prints will still be the same which is the Saturday night before the comp night (2 days). This means EDIs for January need to be uploaded before 11pm on the 5th of January

This video shows how the new entry pages will operate in March   ://youtu.be/K-Mrgz1ZfJE

Lightroom Workshop – using two monitors

For those who participated in John Sharple’s Lightroom workshops… and for any other member interested…

A question came up about using Lightroom with two monitors.  John says…

Here is a link to an article describing how to use two monitors in Lightroom. https://www.creative-photographer.com/two-monitors-lightroom/
It describes a number of way to achieve this and how to use it. I have tried it on LR6 and it works so is not restricted to LR CC.
