Backlit Comp Night

[singlepic id=3162 w=320 h=240 float=left]
The theme “Backlit Competition” was proposed by one of our members, S.H.HA, who acted as the judge of this competition held last Monday night (20/8/2012). With his score guidelines (relevancy, artistic merit, technical merit, and bright outlined subject), these special prints and digital competitions were run quite smoothly and successfully. Thanks Mr. S.H. HA. Then, Diane drew from the attending members three judges (Alan, Steve, and Jenny who later was replaced by Andrea due to her early excuse) for the open prints and digital competitions. Although the night lasted a bit late, we did thanks for this group of judges, who gave honest and well taken comments on the photos.

Scotland Club Night

[singlepic id=2829 w=320 h=240 float=left]
After a shaky start of almost being locked out of The Studio from a newly constructed entrance door, we were able to hold one last meeting there before clean out work begins and new tenants move in. Club Member Rick Behl gave a very interesting and informative presentation on his experiences with a UK Landscape Photography Workshop followed by a selection of his medium format 6x7cm slides taken during that workshop of the beautiful areas around Quirang and Eigol Scotland. Rick covered workshop selection, gear, topics, daily activities, technical aspects and setting up the shots. Many questions were asked. We followed that with a short video of of noted New York headshot photographer Peter Hurley and then brief show and tells by Alan, Sammy and Ali and ended up with another historical Group Photo – our last in the Studio.

We were honored to have Gary Tyson , our old friend, to be our judge for this theme (Street Portrait using Kodak disposal camera). Besides showing his photos and gear of his speciality on street photography, he also gave us tips on street portrait photography, which are very helpful to our members.
This evening (18/6/2012) may also signify our final meeting at the Studio, which has been our “home” since early 2007. On John’s short speech, we drank to farewell. We had a group photo afterward.

Aerial Arts Photoshooting

[singlepic id=2750 w=320 h=240 float=left]
The place, which is usually is for women only, was packed with males figures, who carried cameras walking around the rooms on the 10th of June. This is called Pole Divas HK , the place that promotes fitness, femininity, and fun. Organized by our Chairperson, Ali, this aerial arts photoshooting turned out be a really fun and challenging outing for the members. Jady, who is the leader of the team, has diversity in her talent, doing most of the make-up for the line-up. Then the performers Sunny, Jocelyn, Diana, and Flo took turns to hold their gymnastic, elegant, and some difficult poses on the pole, ring, or silk respectively. Surely it was not an easy job since they had to be still for us to take photos.
Go to the Gallery to see the fun part (John Meldrum is credited to this outing photos).
