I do have to say that Bruce Girdwood did a great job of judging the entries for the Frank Hinchcliff Memorial Trophy on 28 July. The winner was, um, Neil Gordon, for the print “Edge Effect”. Carol Molineux was runner up with her print “Searching for Food” of a Buller’s Mollymawk.
Bruce reminded us that in evaluating images he was looking for Intent, Style, and Technical competence. He went on to update us on his own photographic journey – it is fascinating each year when he visits KCPS to see his own development, and where his image making is going.
For Bruce it is very much not “What am I going to photograph?”, but “Why am I going to photograph?”; he is making a visual diary off his experiences primarily for his own benefit. His imagery is inspiring.
Member’s Exhibition Monday 11 August
Two members – Ian Linning and Hal Gimperson – will talk about their interest in photography and show some of their work at our next KCPS meeting on Monday.
This is also the deadline for your entries for the Winter Salon.
Online entries can be made at https://kcps.org.nz/salon-entry-form/ with a deadline of 5 pm on Monday.
