Photography: last month

August meeting

There were 12 of us at the meeting to-day. The competition subject was Landscapes and we had 10 very good images entered. Winner was Judith with “A Dorset Panorama” (25 pts), Terry was second with “Ominous Henge” (22 pts) and third was Ken with “Across the Bay” (12 pts). Terry’s “Ominous Henge” got Glynne’s Highly Commended while Dennis gave his HC to Jim’s “Mining Country”. As usual, winners and other entries are shown right and below. Well done everyone, but we would like to see a few more entries for September’s “Reflections” subject. We don’t think you will have any trouble finding subject matter?

The second half was a broad overview by Glynne, including up-to-date prices, of 4 of the most popular Digital Editors available for Windows 10, and he followed this up with a demonstration of some of the basic functions of one of them: Corel's Paintshop Pro 2019. It was useful to recap much of what we learned about editing two years ago. If anyone using PaintShop Pro (any version) has any queries, Glynne will be pleased to help. If any member would like a one-to-one introduction to digital editing, please get in touch (contact details above).

Hopefully we will see you all in September.
