How to Win Prizes for Photography:      21 May 2018

Our chairman Cec welcomed a large audience of members, including some new members, to the Plant Exchange evening and a talk by Jean Holmwood, our Show Photography Judge, on How to Win Prizes for Photographs.

A large number of plants were brought by members for exchange resulting in great activity in this area during the evening.

Our speaker Jean has been interested in photography since the age of 13 and in 2006 was awarded a Credit of the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (CPAGB).

Jean came equipped with a large portfolio of very interesting photographs which she had taken over the years, she then used these to illustrate her talk on some of the main points to be considered in achieving award winning pictures. These points are:

  • Keep it simple – don’t put too much into the picture as it can detract from the main subject.
  • Don’t ‘loose’ or crop tops or bottoms of subjects – when taking pictures of buildings ensure all of the roofs, chimneys, spires, etc., and the bottom of doors are in the pictures; similarly don’t subsequently crop these off.
  • Take subjects from unusual angles – this adds interest to the picture and may reveal some unseen aspect.
  • The Rule of Thirds – mentally divide the picture with two vertical and two horizontal lines, then place the subject near or on a line and not centrally in the picture, in a landscape put the horizon on a line not in the centre; this all makes for a more interesting picture.
  • Lighting – for most pictures front lighting of the subject is best, i.e. with the light source behind the photographer, but back lighting can produce some interesting pictures, particularly for portrait pictures.
  • Abstracts – by getting in very close to subjects unusual pictures can be obtained, focusing on the subject or the background varies the image and makes for more interest.
  • Long exposure – this can make for interesting pictures of subjects, such as moving water, where the rest of the picture items are stationary.
  • Processing effects – many interesting and unusual effects can be achieved by making changes after capture of the picture, such as cropping, going negative, changing colours, sepia, monochrome, etc.

Many thanks to all the committee members and the many volunteers for providing the refreshments and organising the Plant Exchange, and to Jean Holmwood for her talk, all of which made it an enjoyable and interesting evening.
