Photo Exchange with N&DPS in England!

Photo Exchange with N&DPS in England!
Remember, the due date for your photos is coming up: Friday, January 24th!
Please e-mail the photos to me by that date or sooner.
Remember, the photos must be no wider than 1400 pixels, and no higher than 1050 pixels.
That means that a vertical photo still has to be no more than 1050 pixels high.
This rule is different than what we do for RBCC.
If you would like your photos from the RBCC exchange used in the N&DPS  exchange please let me know by Monday January 20thI will make the size adjustments.
If you send photos to me and I do not acknowledge them within 24 hours, please give me a phone call.

Newark & District Photographic Society – January 2013


Happy New Year to all in Lincoln Camera Club from a very wet Newark & District PS.  We have had torrential rain at times, then just rain, but it all accumulates and the River Trent that runs through Newark, and bypasses the tiny village I live in, has burst its banks in several places and there are areas where the river is about half a mile wide.  Water-pumping stations have been flooded by the water they are meant to distribute and we were without water for a few hours as a result.

Rose King, our President, and her husband Paul are in California as I write this column, and they too have had rain.  Clark Springman sent a CD with the images for the inter-club image exchange to Rose in California so as to avoid the Christmas and New Year mail “rush” and sent me a copy as well.  Our thanks are due to Clark for his hard work in gathering LCC’s work for our enjoyment, and for ensuring we get it in good time for our meeting on 7th January.  We originally planned to show the N&EMPF Exhibition CD of images and commentary but as the exhibition doesn’t actually open until 12th January it is not possible to show it, so the LCC/N&DPS Exchange will fill-in very nicely.

December 2012 News from Newark & District Photographic Society


Hello Lincoln Camera Club members.  Here we are at the end of November and Christmas is not far away.  Our Programme for December is quite sparse, with only two meetings and the Christmas social event.

On Monday 3rd December we have Heat 3 of the Photographer of the Year Competition.  This is for Projected Digital Images and our judge is Bob Rowe ARPS, from Nottingham.  Bob is an excellent choice for judge as he is a professional Photoshop tutor and has many years of experience as a photographer, lecturer and judge.

On the 10th Newark hosts the “Manor Trophy”.  This is an inter-club competition for up to five clubs from the area who are selected because of a proven track-record in producing good quality work.  Our own member, Ralph Bennett ARPS will be the judge.

The 17th is the night we have our annual Christmas social and this year we shall return to the same venue as last year, overlooking the River Trent.  The two following Mondays are devoted to Christmas and New Year breaks.
