Speaker David Nightingale of chromasia.com spoke on Post Production and Narrative Intent: the role of post production in photography and conceptualisation.
David opened the first part of his presentation with an insight into both his and his wife’s work. His own is a mix of portrait, landscape and ‘street’ photography, with all images involving some measure of post production editing. However, what shone through was that his working method included as much creative decision making before the shot was taken as after.
Speaker John Barton ARPS
Topic 1. A personal look at editing in Photoshop: Colour to Monochrome
Topic 2. Show of a selection of John’s own monochrome prints: ecclesiastical architecture and Hebridean and Orkney Island landscapes.
Alf Myers visited North Fylde PS this week, to give his talk on street photography. He introduced the club to the art of capturing the emotions and feelings in the candid and unexpected happening around us in the urban world.
Morrisons supermarket in Cleveleys arranged to host North Fylde Photographic Society for a clever and challenging competition.

This season 2017-18 has seen a change to some of the rules regarding competition entries. The L&CPU standard sizing has been increased to 1200px by 1600px for digital images, which we have also adopted. In addition to this, and after the success we had last season with the Seasonal PDI competitions, there have been some changes to the number of entries per competition.
The third of this season’s guest presentations was given by Gordon Jenkins APAGB MIoP.
Gordon is a man with many roles and distinctions in the world of photography: President and Treasurer of Chorley Photographic Society, Treasurer and former President of the L&CPU, Chairman of the BPE and, above all, the new President of the PAGB itself. So we were lucky and privileged to have such a busy man in our midst.
There was never a thought to start with about making this image, the whole thing started off as a bit of fun with Jake the day my mum and Zara threw powder all over him.
