Attendees 24 March 28.3.23
Last night we had a presentation from Kathy, called Preparing a Panel which is in preparation for a competition we have coming up on May 18th. This is a three club competition and the clubs taking part are Tring (Herts), Leighton Buzzard (Beds) and ImageZ (Bucks) hence the title Three Counties Competition.
Each club will enter a number of panels that have been selected from members entries. These will be shown and judged at Tring Photographic Club where the competition will be held.
Kathy gave us a presentation explaining how to choose images and display them and what makes a good panel. The presentation was informative, giving us detailed information, plus examples of panels that worked and panels that did not work. The members were asked to explain why certain panels did not work, and to explain why others did.
After the break we worked in groups together to make panels from magazine pictures which had been prepared or to choose our own cut-out items from other magazines. This was a fun activity and at the end of the evening the panels were exhibited and discussed. The makers of each panel explained why they had chosen their pictures and what story they wished to portray.
Some examples of this fun exercise are accompanying this blog.
Thank you to Kathy for a fun and informative evening. She will be sending out details on email to all members on creating panels and the entry procedure for this competition.
