This Friday at KPS ...

On 25th August Kingswood Photographic Society members are meeting at The Jolly Sailor car park in Saltford at 7.00pm for the last of its summer outings.  If you arrive later we won’t be too far away!

As this is also a bank holiday Friday it seems better to stay close to home rather than anyone risking using the motorways.  With this in mind our Social Secretary, Dave Dimond, has decided we visit Saltford for a stroll along the river or in case of adverse weather a social evening in the Jolly Sailor. 

Location:  The Jolly Sailor Mead Lane, Saltford, Bristol BS31 3ER.

In case you have any queries on the day, please contact Dave Dimond on 07899.

This should be a fun evening and it would be great to see as many members as possible.  Hopefully the weather will be kind to us.

John Long's tip of the week

Clouds are a timeless form of photography and here are 40 examples of interesting pictures many of which depend on the clouds present when the photograph was taken.

This Friday at KPS ...

Kingswood Photographic Society has a Print & DPI Critique Evening on 18th August, when members can receive constructive comments on their images or simply share their photographs with others.

A number of members have indicated that they will be showing either prints or digital images so we know we are in for an excellent evening.  However, as this is always a very popular night, with normally more people wanting to speak than there is time available, we suggest between 10 to 15 images are included in the first instance, leaving our Chairman to judge whether there is space for additional ones.

When members show their photographs, we hope they will explain why they choose to press the shutter when they did and what they wanted to achieve when processing them.  What we are especially hoping to see is work from those who have not been entering competitions, as this is a good occasion for us all to see what type of pictures are taken by members for themselves.  It will also be fascinating to discover just how many were not taken on an SLR camera, as we know good quality images can also be made on simple compacts and with cameras on smart phones.

This type of evening provides us all with the chance to learn what judges are looking for and to improve our photography.  So, please come and enjoy what should be an educational and enthralling evening. 

Visitors are always welcome and this evening in particular gives an excellent opportunity to see members’ work and to hear the feedback offered. Kingswood PS meets Fridays at 7.30pm at St Barnabas Church Hall, Warmley, Bristol BS30 5JJ. The cost for this evening is £3.00.

We hope to see you there.
