Mount Board and Paper offers,

Good morning all,

Just to let you know that if anyone is after some Mount Board (or Pinnacle paper (there own make)), a company called Paper Spectrum (where I get all my Mount Board from) is offering a 20% discount for this weekend only with the promotion code PS201820.

The prices are really competitive at around £12:00 for 10 Sheets of 500 x 400mm Black and £10:00 for 10 Sheets of White / Off White. + 20% discount.

4 Day delivery is £4:00 for no matter how much you order. Next day etc. is offered at a higher price.

I have just ordered a load myself.

You have from the 17th – 20th March if you want the discount.


18th December Meeting,

Ok, so its decided that tonight (18th December 2017) we will be out and about around the market place in Cirencester to get some Christmas shots and then afterwards into the Fleece for a warming pre-Christmas drink.

Tonight’s theme will be slightly different.

You are restricted to the Market place and Blackjack street (inc. the Swanyard) to get your shots which have to meet the criteria set (we will perhaps review them on the Christmas meal evening with a prize for the best? TBC).

The subjects are, Christmas Tree (s), Christmas Lights, Light Trails (long exposure), a Star (s), a Candle (s), Father Christmas, an Angel (s) and a Christmas reflection.

We will meet at 7:30pm outside the Church (in the Market place) and have 1 hour to get taking photos. Remember your “Basics” lessons. As its night, manual mode will be ideal as you will be able to control the dark and light parts of the photo to get an even exposure balance (auto modes will struggle).

At 8:30, meet in the Fleece for a pre-Christmas drink and chat.

I along with some other experienced members will be on hand to help those that are struggling with some hands on help (be it getting the exposure right or getting a good composition).

Bring your tripod and remote release if you have one?

Hope to see you there!

Christmas meal,

Just a reminder that for those that wish to attend the Christmas meal, please bring along your £10 (partners are also invited at the same cost) before the Christmas break, so Paul Jones / John Spreadbury can confirm the numbers and pay the meal deposit.
If you have any questions, please speak to the Chairman John Spreadbury or Secretary David Wallis about the event.

DPIC image submission

I should have added on Monday that DPIC images are now due in.

Please bring along any images that you believe are good enough for selection on a memory stick on Monday 27th November.

Please resize all images to the usual 1600 x 1200 Pixel resolution in sRGB format (the same as competition entries).

The Committee will choose the images from those supplied for selection and will do there best to select from a variety of members of the club.

If you have any questions, please e-mail Paul Jones (WCPF Rep. for the club) via the website if you don’t have his e-mail address.


Basics of Photography Part 1 and 2

In two weeks we have part three of the Basics of Photography talk.

If anyone wishes to have a copy of Part 1 and 2, please bring in a memory stick at the club on Monday nights and I will copy the presentations onto it (it seems that it is to big for the Web which has a 8mb limit. I tried to break it into chunks and upload it but it doesn’t seem to respond very well due to the file sizes!).
