Hope you are all having a good week, i’ve been a busy bee as always but finally managed to fit in a trip to Harlow to see the annual EAF exhibition. It was truly inspirational and was very proud to see our very own members images holding their own amongst the very best of the East Anglia region.
Unfortunately we ended up getting rained off on Tuesday, but it didnt stop us all meeting for a swift half and some club related chatter. » Continue reading Only me … Chairman’s update 19 May
As was mentioned in the Herts and Essex Observer we had 4 photos accepted for the EAF exhibition at the Gibberd Gallery in Harlow 2 DPI and 2 prints.
As I was on the club trip to Hereford on Saturday when the Exhibition opened I sallied forth on Tuesday to see what we had been up against. The selection was certainly well worth a look, as was the general impression of what sort of work is going through at this level.
It was largely a Photoshop Exhibition, with lots of very obvious “Oil Paint” filter (CS6 pixel-bender add-on from Adobe Labs), compositing and Topaz Adjust going in to achieve the final results. There was also much less of the extreme grunge from 2-3 years ago, and of course a celebration of last year’s “Summer of Sport.” As is usual for the EAF there were also plenty of Natural History shots, which are of course not retouched
It will take you slightly more than one hour to go round and also look at the slideshow, so go for the 3 hour £1 parking and take your time.

Last Saturday we had a very successful quiz night fundraiser for the Projector Fund. 11 teams battled it out, some concentrating on the quiz, some having more fun building towers of Coke Cans, no matter a good time was had by all.
At half time Emma’s (family) team brought out a splendid ploughman’s supper, . . . → Read More: Quiz night successes
