The results of the Projected Image Exhibition for 2018 were announced and presented at the meeting on Monday 12 November. The Open Section images were selected by Trish and Alistair McAuslan. They were not present at the meeting, but their comments were read out by Melanie Middlemiss. The Natural History Section images were selected by Craig McKenzie who commented on each of the images as they were projected.
The awards, which are summarised below, were presented by our Patron, Ian Wyllie. Congratulations to all ten members of the Society who had images accepted for the exhibition, and to the six who also received Honours awards. Special recognition went to Andre Koschinowski, who received the Champion Award in the Open category, and to Gary McClintock, who received the Champion Award in the Natural History category. Gary was also awarded the F.H. Williams Memorial Trophy. Special thanks to Trish and Alistair McAuslan and Craig McKenzie for their careful selection and the insightful and constructive comments. Videos of past exhibitions and field trips can be seen here.

Mark Glaler, Adobe Ambassador and Photoshop Guru has put together a tutorial on an effect he calls Multiplicity.
You can find the tutorial here
The trick is to find the correct image to try the effect on, just as Nicola has on the image below. Thanks also to Nicola for suggesting the tutorial as a blog post.
Links below to a BBC documentary you should find interesting. The content is from Youtube so may be removed at some point in the future. If you search for ‘Eamonn McCabe’ it should be hosted somewhere else on YouTube.
‘…Eamonn McCabe celebrates Britain’s greatest photographers, sees how science allowed their art to develop, and explores how they have captured our changing lives and country.’
Episode 3 (footage starts at 30 seconds)
This is a helpful video showing how to mat an artwork/photograph. I don’t have all the different types of tapes that he uses, but I particularly like the way he attaches the picture to the backing board. – Melanie
For those who enjoy the dulcet tones of the bagpipes, then this was the photo walk for you!
If you weren’t able to join us, you can enjoy these images and the sounds of the day in this video.
We always try to have at least one photowalk or field trip each month and when we get back we like to share a selection of photos taken on the trip – to entice other members to join us on the next trip! Here are the slideshows from some recent trips (and a workshop).
