Summer Update

02nd June 2017
Just a few reminders during the Summer gap between sessions.

Gryffe CC will have a stall at the Houston Show being held on 3rd June.
While there are some willing helpers, feel free to come along and support both the Club and the Show. Keep fingers crossed for good weather.

In advance of the start of the next session, here are a few notable dates to remember.

Postcards/Image Manipulation Night – 13th September
Share your summer adventures with the members. Bring along a memory stick on the night with digital images (format to 1920 x 1200). Be as creative as you wish – add text, use multiple pictures, just like a normal postcard.

Image Manipulation – we are looking for 4-6 volunteers (who will remain anonymous), to process 4 RAW images. Object is to show that we all see images differently. This exercise was well received last year.

Club Exchange Night – 27th September
We are in competition with three other clubs – Vancouver, Canada; Grenoble, Switzerland & Gudelajara, Mexico.
The brief – ‘To showcase Scotland’
Photos to be taken within 100 miles of The Carrick, and can be anything deemed to be Scottish – scapes, people, buildings etc. The only caveat is that you title the photo so our foreign competitors know what/where it is. Format the photo to 1920 x 1200 pixels and submit to by 18th August. 20 prints will be chosen to represent Gryffe and sent to the competing clubs. They will do likewise and we will judge their entries on 27th September. No prizes unfortunately.

League Competition 2 – 1 November
The theme for this competition is ‘Scapes’

League Competition 4 – 7 February
The theme for this competition is ‘Emotions/Five Senses’

3-way Digital Friendly – 13 March
The themes for this competition are Historic Buildings; Triangles; Recreation; Dereliction; Happiness

Straight from the Camera – 21 March
New competition next year. Your technical ability to get the picture correct in camera is required (no sloping horizons etc.), not your ability with Photoshop. There will be minimal use of post-processing allowed. It will be an ‘open’ competition and you will submit a 10” x 8” unmounted print (to keep the cost to a minimum). To prove your lack of Photoshop use, you will also submit the original RAW image on a memory stick. Bill Crookston will judge the entries, and there will be a trophy for the winner. Full details to follow.

Enjoy the Summer and take lots of photographs.
