Contemporary Photography June

Monday 19

Starting at 7pm sharp – AV Special Interest Group (SIG).

The AV SIG is stepping into gear with all participants being challenged to start a MINI10 AV to present at this meeting. This is an easy start into AVs as Murray pointed out there's a story in everything, it's just the way it's told that matters.

At this meeting, we'll look at these AVs and discuss ways to refine the edits. Murray will also demonstrate how to assemble an AV using Fotomagico (for Mac but the principles are the same for Windows.) All are welcome.

Starting at 7:45pm sharp – Combined meeting of the new Street Photography SIG and the Critique SIG.

Lisa Kurtz will also be attending to critique one to two of our photos that we submit from the outing on 28 May and give us feedback and pointers. It is very important to gauge how many people would like to attend to decide on how many images people can submit for critique, bearing in mind that the meeting is only two or so hours.

In preparation for the SIG meeting, Tony Watts and Elayne Mitchelson will host an outing for the SIG Street Photography on Sunday 28 May with Lisa Kurtz attending to give advice and assistance. The meeting place is the forecourt in front of GOMA at 2.30pm. The intention is to do the West End to Art Gallery Walk. Please email Elayne Mitchelson (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) to express your interest in attending this event.

Starting at 7:30pm - International SIG

This year the format will be different – any BCG member who is interested in entering images in international or national competitions is welcome to bring along a few images to show to the group and receive critique on those images. We hope this will improve your chances of doing well in those competitions. On 19 June, the critique will be headed by award winning professional photographer Mel Sinclair, with other members of the group, some of whom have had success internationally, also being able to offer their suggestions.

International and national competitions are a very good way to benchmark your work against other photographers, have your images judged by a wider range of judges and this all helps to improve your own photography. So, we encourage you to think about entering some of these competitions, and come along to the next ISIG meeting on Monday 19 June with a few of your images.
