2012 PSA Council Challenge

From: NECCC Interclub Competition
Sent: Wednesday, May 16, 2012 11:53 AM
To: NECCC Club Members:
Subject: 2012 PSA Council Challenge

Dear NECCC Club Members,

You are receiving this message because: you sent monochrome images for
possible inclusion in NECCC's entry for the 2012 PSA Council Challenge
Competition; you sent images for other members of your club; or you
were the digital slide interclub rep for the 2011-2012 season.

We have now chosen and submitted the entries for the 2012 Digital Color
and Digital Monochrome Council Challenge categories. The Color category
entries were chosen from among the 1st-, 2nd-, or 3rd-place winners or
HM winners from the three 2011-2012 NECCC Electronic Interclub
Competitions. We had slightly over 100 Pictorial images and a similar
number of nature images from which to make our selection. The
Monochrome entries were chosen from aproximately 200 images sent by
members of NECCC clubs along with a few monochrome winners from the
interclub competitions. We thank all of you who took the trouble to
submit monochrome images for our consideration.

I have attached lists of the images submitted to the challenge for your
information. Please be sure that members of your clubs who had images
chosen are notified. The results of the competition will not be known
until after the PSA convention to be held in San Francisco late in
September. When I know the results I will send out another e-mail to
this same group.

Best regards,

Bill

'Your Gear' workshop May 12th


'Your Gear' workshop

Here's a chance to share with your fellow photographers the photo gear you are most pleased with, be it camera bodies, lenses, flash, or those other little gizmos that really help when making photographs. You can also share things that come under the category of "What WAS I thinking". To discuss larger gear, you might want to bring a photo of it if it would be too large to haul.

For folks who are newer to photography, this is a wonderful opportunity to learn first hand, from folks who really use this equipment, what are must-haves and which sit on the shelf most of the time.
This will also be an opportunity to try to sell gear you are no longer using. Bring it along, with a price tag and your name and we'll put it all on a table for folks to peruse. This will between you and whoever is interested in the gear to work out price, etc.

The workshop will be held on Saturday, May 12th @ 1PM at the photo studio of the Castigliones in North Branford. Address and directions will be sent to those that sign up approximately one week before the workshop.

To sign up, please email Joan at beadnik2@gmail.com.  Please include your name, phone number and email address.

Please note that while anyone can attend our programs and monthly meetings, you must be a paid member in order to attend our workshops and field trips...

Friday, May 4, 2012

The deadline for the next competition is Friday May 11th.

The deadline for the next competition is Friday May 11th. Please see the handbook, the competitions tab on the NHCC Blog and the NHCC Blogpost from 9/18 for more details.

Easy Directions for Filing, Sizing, Titling Images
for Competition

Photographs must be submitted as JPEG images
with the .jpg extension.

Convert the photograph to the sRGB color space. Your images may already be in that color space. If the color of your images seems off when they are projected, you may want to check this.

Our projector requires that images be no more than 1024 WIDE and no more than 768 HIGH. (If you submit a vertical image, it will typically be approximately 500 wide to allow it to be 768 high.) See illustrations.

From looking at the illustrations, you can see that images which are vertical or square will be smaller than horizontal images.

Titles - Please use the following format.

Class$Image Number$LastName$FirstName$Title$Year-month (numeral).jpg

Examples:
B1$Jones$Bill$Red_Skier$2011.09.jpg
B2$Jones$Bill$At_The_Beach$2011.09.jpg
S1$Jones$Bill$Glassware$2011.09.jpg
C1$Jones$Bill$Abstraction$2011-09.jpg

S is used for the assigned subject.
C is used for the new Image Artistry category.

Do not leave any spaces. Use the underline character “_”instead of spaces.

Note: Your computer may automatically put .jpg at the end of the title. If that is the case, you should not put .jpg at the end or you will end up with .jpg.jpg

Look carefully at your completed title to make sure that it is correct.
Have you used the dollar sign $ to separate fields?
Have you used the underline “_” between words in the title?
Are the year and month correct?
Does it end in .jpg ?

Attach your images to an email and send to nhccwin@yahoo.com
Organization Hint: Make a folder for NHCC Possible Comp images. These should be duplicates of your better photographs. Make another folder for NHCC Competition 2011-12. Don’t put anything into this folder unless it is sized correctly and titled correctly. When you open this folder, all of your images will be in the same format and you can simply copy what you have previously done.

Remember, the number of entries per contest has changed this year. Please note the numbers in each category below. (from the NHCC Handbook)
9. Number of entries per contest:

a. Each member may enter a maximum of 2 photographs into the print competition in each of the 8 contests, for a year's total of 16 entries.

b. Each member may enter a maximum of 2 photographs into the open electronic competition in each of the 8 contests, for a year's total of 16 open electronic entries.

c. Each member may enter a maximum of 1 photograph into assigned subject in each of the 8 contests, for a year's total of 8 assigned subject entries.

d. Each member may enter a maximum of 1 photograph into image artistry competition in each of the 8 contests, for a year's total of 8 image artistry entries.

I hope this helps. Paul Peterson

FIELD TRIP ON MAY 10TH


FIELD TRIP ON MAY 10TH
The Trips Committee has arranged a short, local field trip to BLUE HILLS FARM in Hamden.  We will
meet at the commuter parking lot at Exit 10 off I 91 at 6:00 PM on Thursday May 10th.  There are hot houses  with beautiful flowering plants available for photography.  There is no charge, but purchases of flowers would be appreciated (and then the flowers would be at your house for further photography). 
Please RSVP to Ann Yost at ayost4@aol.com or call 203-931-9943.
