Melbourne Photographic – Whats On

How to Session, 28th Sept 2017

This week’s “How To” Session is based around how to prepare pictures for competitions , and covers all the basics throughout the cycle from cropping, printing and mounting, through to what competitions are all about.  How this all hangs together can sometimes be fairly confusing for many photographers ( Me included ! ) , and the idea is to demystify this, and make this accessible to everyone.

It’s a useful point for all of the members to get some new ideas of how this is done, and the talk is being delivered by some of our most experienced members.

At the end we are going to make the awards for the 2016-17 season, delayed from the Annual Dinner.

The Agenda is

  • Overview and Preparation of Images       Helen – 20 Mins
  • Printing   & Mounting                                     Ian  Practical 30 – 45 Mins
  • So what’s competitions all about               Simon  - 15 Mins
  • 2017 Awards                                                    10 – 15  Minutes

As normal we meet at the Thomas Cook Memorial Hall [TCMH] starting at 7:30 pm. We hope to see you there
