Well it was certainly that. After a few minor windows related teething issuets Graham from the Leicester Forest photographic society recovered skillfully and took us on his”Audio Visual Experience”. The presentation included a selection of his digital audio-visual sequences. Aka Pictures set to music along with a few commentaries and sound effects. A wide selection of subjects to suit most tastes.
You can find out more about Graham on his web site and see his AV’s
Last night we had an open discussion with emphasis in regard to judging and critical image appraisal based on our 3 part process of “Impact”, “Technique” & “Composition”. It was hosted by Andrzej Jablonski and consisted of a review of members submitted PDI images for the themes of “Transport” or “Nature”. Andy gave some quite insight full comments on how well each image met the 3 criteria and also some minor modifications that could be done to improve them.
This week was the MCPF Travelling Portfolio which is made up of prints and PDI images selected from the Photofolio Exhibition held in June. The winning images plus some of the accepted images from this Exhibition go into make up the evening’s entertainment.
You can view the images on the MCPF Website
Last night saw a very informal first meeting of the 2017/18 due to renovations to the usual room the meeting was held in the main bar and basically consisted of a resume of the AGM and the programme for the new season with a question and answer session as well. You can find the full programme on the website and also in the members handbook which is currently available electronically on the home page. There was a good turn out of past members and it was also good to see some potential new members.
Also for the Interactive Critique evening please email 3 or 4 electronic copies of images that meet the themes of either Transport or Nature to email@example.com
