The 2018 selectors

 

Clive Haynes FRPS

Clive is a past chairman of the RPS Digital Imaging Group and a current RPS Distinctions panel member for Fellowship and Associateship applications.  Clive has considerable experience as a photographer for some sixty years.  Artistically, never standing still he constantly seeks fresh and stimulating ways of expression within our art-form.  He has lectured widely, been a teacher of photography, run photographic courses and digital workshops.  An exponent of both Lightroom and Photoshop, his extensive website contains a wealth of information about Photoshop methods and techniques. www.crhfoto.co.uk

 

 

 
I have been pushing the boundaries of photography for over fifty years and I always have photographic projects on the go. My photographic qualifications have expanded over 30 years, recently being the third person in the country to gain the EFIAP diamond2 distinction which is only achieved by gaining awards in International exhibitions.  
 
Rather than just collecting letters after my name these qualifications  stimulate/develop  my work and give me goals to work to.
Through my qualifications I take every opportunity to help others develop their own photographic skills
 I am still a very active photographer and enjoy photographic all subject matter. I also enjoy judging at all levels and have sat on panels for the RPS and PAGB.

Projected Image Competition Trophy

 

The 'Raymond Wallace Thompson Trophy' for the DI Group's annual Projected Image Competition

Raymond Wallace ThompsonRaymond Wallace Thompson ARPS was a long-time member of the RPS and of the Digital Imaging Group.  His photographic skills brought him recognition and awards from the UK and the USA and beyond. When he died on 20 October 2010, aged 93 years, he kindly left a legacy to the Group. The DIG Committee of the time decided that a fitting way to use this was to commission a trophy for the Group's annual Digital Projected Image Competition.      

The Trophy was presented for the first time for the 2011 competition.
The elegant solid glass etched trophy was designed and made for the Group by Steven le Prevost FRPS.  It bears the words 'In memory of Raymond Wallace Thompson ARPS' above the DI Group logo.  The glass stands on an elegant wooden base on which is a plaque engraved with the RPS crest, as well as the winners' names year on year.

When images are submitted for the Projected Image Competition it is necessary for entrants to convert or embed the correct profile in their images. This is to ensure that the images are viewed in the best possible manner and are reproduced in the catalogue that will be produced, correctly.

Rex Waygood has produced a short document explaining how this is achieved in Phtoshop CC. Click HERE for details.
