Thames Valley Print Exhibition and Joint Meeting
Date: 16th October 11
Time: 10:00AM - 4:00PM
Contact: Mark Buckley-Sharp
Group: Imaging Science
Region: Thames Valley
Thames Valley Region met jointly with the Imaging Science Group at Drake Hall, Community Centre, Chiltern Avenue, Amersham HP6 5AH
In the morning, members brought 3 prints, which were presented to and discussed by our guest selector, Colin Harrison FRPS. All the prints were exhibited for the day, and Colin also chose one from each members to be included in the web gallery.
Members voted for their favourite prints, and the results were:
1st. Bishop Alcock's Chapel, Ely by Ken Keen FRPS
2nd Old Old Friends by Peter Stevens ARPS
3rd White Horses at Sunset by Gill Morgan LRPS
The prize is for these three images to appear on the region's home page for a year.
In the afternoon, Tony Kaye ASIS FRPS of the Imaging Science Group gave two presentations, supported by a variety of display materials:
1) RAW - The advantages/disadvantages of RAW compared to fully rendered JPEG or TIFF images created “in camera”. Different RAW converters can produce very different and at times unexpected results.
2) How many Pixels do you really need? – A discussion on the ability of the eye, on viewing distances, and the thorny issue of how many pixels is equivalent to a 35mm frame of film.
