2021-Photo Competition Results < Photos > 2023-Photo Competition Results results of the 2022 TTC Photo Competition, held 23rd August, judged by James Gilberd


The TTC Photo Competition 2022, held on 23rd August, attracted ?? entries.

The competition was judged by James Gilberd. James presented the competition results at the clubnight. Fiona McKinney and Alan Knowles organised and attended the judging.

Last year’s judge of the Photo competition, James Gilberd of Photospace Gallery, stepped up with another stellar performance at the 2022 judging.

He found something positive to say about every entry but said that having more photos to choose from next year should make for stronger entries. He was complimentary about the sinuous designs in many landscapes that led the eye to a focal point. He urged us to use our eyes to compose our photographs into a cohesive whole and not do it on the tiny camera screen.

‘Once you've found your shot by eye, taking various photos with different exposures and compositions (including horizontal and vertical) can be done rapidly, without getting too far behind your party, provided you know how to operate your camera’, he said. We should exclude elements that distract the eye in the composition. When shooting snow scenes it's helpful to bracket exposures to ensure surface detail is not lost. And he urged us to point the lens towards the light to add drama, although the lens might need to be shaded to avoid flare.

We should take lots of photographs of the chosen scene from different viewpoints and focus settings, then sort the best on our computers. If we want to add mood we should experiment with reducing, or lowering, the exposure.
