Club to hold 2019 to 2020 Annual Print Competition
This week at Greenock Camera Club we hold our 2019-2020 annual print competition which was held over from last season with Judge Peter Demarco from Eastwood Photographic. Peter has his own printing business and is a very talented photographer so is in the best position to give constructive comments on our images. On the evening club members will see the digital versions although Peter has all the prints and will be making his decisions on the quality of image, the quality of the printing, and how it has been displayed on the mount which is a requirement of entering competitions on the print format.
The Annual Print Competition has several sections including Beginners open competition, Open Mono and Open Colour as well as a separate section for Portraits. There is also an award for the best landscape image and the centenary Trophy for the top image in the whole competition
Many people take pictures of everyday subjects as they are out and about. However, the trick is to produce a very good photograph and competition nights, with a high-quality judge, enable the members to see what makes a good picture and how to improve their picture-taking from the judge's constructive comments
This would be of interest to any photographer from the local area who wants to take their pictures to the next level, or just enjoy looks at pictures. So if you want to develop your skills with the Greenock Camera club or enjoy looking at pictures contact us to join and share an interest in Photography with others from your local area. The club's winter season continues this Thursday 5th November our weekly ‘virtual meeting’ being held via WebEx video conferencing technology (similar to Zoom). Whether you are an experienced photographer or just starting out and using a phone camera, you will be made most welcome.

Big thanks to Colin Westgate for his talk “Wild Britain” last week which was very inspiring and taught us all about photographing the landscape with his mantra that you photograph the light not the landscape. It was a very informative evening
