    Andrea Hargreaves: The Art of Metamorphosis

    Penrith Rugby Club, Winters Park, Penrith, CA11 8RG.

    I begin by showing a brief digital presentation of images showing how I started in club photography and some of which I used to gain my early photographic distinctions.  This is followed by a presentation explaining the route my images take from photo shoot to finished competition entry – showing how I constructed a successful series of images which made up my latest distinction submissions.  The images are mostly Creative / Altered Reality and include female nudity. Time permitting, I show a couple of extra powerpoint presentations where I build up some images layer by layer  - very quick but effective! The talk is digital which is loaded onto my Macbook pro but I also bring prints to supplement the talk and for members to look at during the break if they wish.

    Portfolio of the Year Competition

    7:30 pmFriends Meeting House, Elliot Park, Keswick, CA12 5NZ

    Judge: John Williams, EFIAP/b, MPSA, DPAGB from Penrith & District Camera Club

    The Portfolio Competition will now go ahead as a digital image only competition in view of the potential risks involved in handling prints. In order to make the competition a little more interesting on this occasion as there are no prints, four digital images will now be required instead of three, each from a different genre as listed under the competition rules.

    For those of you that have already entered please ensure that your additional image is submitted to Tricia by Friday 27th March. If you simply want to use one of the digital versions of your print entries then please let Tricia know. If you haven't yet entered but would like to do so then please let Tricia have all four of your entries by next Friday.

    John Williams will then judge the entries and provide brief comments. The images, together with the scores and brief comments will  be put on the KPS web site.
