This week we enjoyed discussing a selection of prints from the last L&CPU Annual Competition. We also viewed the 2013 RPS Images for Projection International Exhibition and were very impressed by the photographs in the “In Camera” section which was new this year and an attempt to counter the growing number of composite images entered into these competitions. Wisely deciding not to simply ban them the RPS gave them a category of their own ;”altered reality”

We have been impressed by the new free newspaper Photography News produced by Advanced Photographer magazine editor Will Cheung. Yes, it is advertising driven but at least Will is including a lot of club photography orientated items and no other magazine does that. So, well done Mr Cheung!

Adobe made a remarkable offer this week. Photoshop, Lightroom, Behance Membership and 20Gb of storage for under £9 per month. This has been on offer for a while to all who already own earlier versions of Photoshop but, until 2nd December the offer is open to everyone.

Next week (28th November) we have our annual inter-club competition with Alsager CC and we look forward to an exciting contest; 15 PDIs and 15 prints from each club, judged by Graham Johnston ARPS AFIAP of North Cheshire PS.
