PDI Competition #1 – judged by John Nathan ARPS

For the first time ever at Photocraft we had a new category of competition entry - advisory class. This was so that members who are not competitive or new members who are fresh to camera clubs can enter images (anonymously, if they wish) to receive positive, impartial...

The waiting is over | final Open PDI Competition

The waiting is over | final Open PDI Competition

I don’t quite know how to say this tactfully, but tonight’s judge was quite simply wrong when it came to one of the winning entries. I hope he’ll forgive me for the sheer pedantry on my part, but the word triptych should have been pronounced with a hard ‘k’ sound at...

A reflecting look at Reflection

Well, we seem to have got the hang of this online meeting set-up now and this evening saw our internal theme competition with "Reflection" being the subject matter for us all to try and capture. Making it this rather than "reflections" allowed a wider interpretation...

Chasing the dark ..

Interested in Astronomy Photography?

If you are, I'd recommend you go take a look at the Astronomy Photographer of the Year exhibition at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. The exhibition is open until 26th April and is well worth a visit if you like that genre of photography. More details can be...
