Friday 19 February sees two further digital competitions. The ‘multi-image spread’ competition allows members to put as many images as they like on a single canvas provided the result is a single cohesive whole. In contrast the ‘nature’ competition is looking for single images of natural history subjects taken as record shots with no post processing that alters the truth of the image.
The visiting independent judge is Monica Weller. Monica is a Surrey-based photographer, photographic judge and lecturer. She was awarded a Fellowship of The Royal Photographic Society in 2012 with her panel ‘On the Edge, Dungeness’, shot on an old Olympus Trip film camera.
As a member of the editorial team of The Royal Photographic Society’s PORTFOLIO series of books she interviewed and wrote about a number of eminent photographers including Terry O’Neill, Albert Watson, Joe Cornish and David Bailey. She is a member of The RPS Licentiate panel and sits on the Associate and Fellowship Contemporary panels.
Monica’s current interests centre on photographing people doing ordinary things (which in her eyes are the extraordinary) particularly at the seaside. You can see some of Monica’s work here.
This event is not being recorded so, if you have entered photos, you need to attend the meeting to hear Monica’s comments.
The Club is meeting via Zoom at 7.30pm on Fridays at present. For more details contact us.
