Our next meeting on Monday night at 7:30 pm will be a Members Exhibition. Three of our members – Teresa Angell, Mike Martin and Hugh Scott – will talk about their passion for photography and show some of their images.
You still have time – just – if you haven’t yet put an entry in for PSNZ’s National Exhibition. Online entries and submission of digital images close on Friday 27 February. If you are submitting prints as part of your entry, it will be OK provided they arrive by 5 pm on Tuesday 3 March. All the details are at http://natex.psnzconvention2015.co.nz.
Early bird registrations for the PSNZ National Convention in Tauranga also close soon – at the end of February. Check out the details and register at http://exploringpixels.nz.
- Registrations are now open for the PSNZ Central Regional Convention – this is being run by the Hutt Camera Club in a very handy location for us, Silverstream, from 7 to 9 November. Check out their website and register early for the best rates and choice of workshops.
- Perfect Effects 8 Premium Edition from onONe Software is currently available free at this link if you want to grab it.
- Want to see if your image will be popular? On Flickr at least. Check out http://popularity.csail.mit.edu. It’s fun to play with. No guarantee of course that your image will do well, when judged for the Autumn Salon!
- Finally, if you’re feeling really ambitious, consider how your images stack up against these 19 most expensive photos ever sold ….
The next PSNZ National Convention will be in Blenheim from 23-27 April. You can find out all about it here. It looks like it’s going to be a fantastic experience with lots of good speakers, workshops and field trips.
Full registration is cheaper for PSNZ members – you’ll save more than your membership fee. So now’s a great time to join up as a member of the Photographic Society of NZ if you aren’t already. You can just go to the PSNZ website at http://photography.org.nz/join.html and join online.
PSNZ members also receive a free copy of NZ Camera, and are the only ones who are eligible to submit photos for this high quality publication that is published in February each year.
KCPS Member Successes
In that regard, I’m pleased to advise that four of our KCPS members have just had images accepted for NZ Camera 2014 – Neil Gordon LPSNZ, Shona Jaray APSNZ, Michael Martin and Alison Viskovic APSNZ. That’s a great result for KCPS – let’s do even better next year with more of our members belonging to PSNZ, and being eligible to submit images.
Registration is now open.Full details are available at http://positivelyphotography.org.nz.
Anybody who has ever attended a PSNZ National convention will tell you that it’s a fantastic time to learn more about photography, renew acquaintances and catch up with old, or not so old, friends.
You’ll be able to hear passionate, international, key-note speakers like Pulitzer prize winner, Liu Heung Shing from China, Pete Dobré from Australia and our very own Amos Chapple, share their stories and experience. You could also attend full workshops that include travelling to the Wairarapa or Kapiti Island, or half-day workshops taking sneak peaks behind the scenes at Te Papa or Imagelab, or catching the ferry to Matiu Somes Island. Places are limited for the workshops, so book soon.
And you’ll get to see the wonderful images accepted for the PSNZ Canon National Exhibition of Photography (NATEX) which KCPS is running.
The venue is in the very heart of Wellington and WPS has secured favourable rates at nearby hotels if you want to stay in town. Check out this list.

Thanks to the sponsors and supporters:
Time to be getting on with your entry for the Audio-Visual Competition for the Jack Sprosen Memorial Trophy.
Entries are now being received for this year’s competition. Entry into this competition is open to all PSNZ members, and to members of clubs affiliated to PSNZ.
Entries close on Friday 16 November 2012. Judging is on 25 November 2012. Winning entries will be shown at the PSNZ National Convention in early May 2013 in Wellington.
Lots more details are available on the PSNZ website, including helpful guidance and where to download entry forms from.
It’s always useful to have a look at some examples when thinking about putting together an AV, but they tend to be hard to find because of concerns over copyright issues, particularly of music.
Here’s a few online AVs I found that you may find useful to look at, which I found via the Wantage Camera Club site. “Morning Has Broken” on Vimeo, “A Night at the Opera” on Youtube, and an AV from 2012 on Vimeo. Enjoy.
PSNZ has launched a new blog. This has worked well for KCPS, and I’m sure it will for PSNZ as well.
Please click on blog.photography.org.nz to read the launch post from the PSNZ President, our own KCPS member Shona, and more posts as well ….
… and subscribe to follow along with the PSNZ blog, as many more posts are added to keep members of PSNZ and affiliated clubs such as KCPS up to date.
It was another great meeting last Monday with the Members’ exhibition. More than 30 of us saw some great images from three of our members Stu, Gavin and Des, and heard about their unique styles and interests in photography.
For those who were able to be there, here’s an image from each as a memento; for those who weren’t, this is just some of what you missed!
See below for details, and give it a try!
