January print competition slideshow

The first print competition for the 2011 year was judged by photographer Bob Warren. Slideshow of the meeting is courtesy of HPS member Leslie Stessel. The special assignment theme for the month was “The Narrow View.”

Print competition winners and photos will be posted in the near future once all photos have been received.

Special assignments for 2011

HPS Print Competition Vice President Bob Jump announces the special assignments for 2011.

The special assignment for each month’s print competition is voluntary and every paid member can enter this category. The goal is to challenge our members to interpret the theme thematically and receive input as to whether they “pulled it off” by the guest print judge.

Additional points are awarded for first, second and third place in this category, which goes towards member point totals at the end of the year. The point total determines whether the member can advance to the next group the following year.

  • January – The Narrow View
  • February – Small-town USA
  • March – Ant’s Eye View
  • April – Pinhole Photography
  • May – Signs of Spring
  • June – Abandoned, Deserted, or Left Behind
  • July – Strangers (photograph a stranger)
  • August – Emptiness
  • September – Adverse Weather
  • October – Monumental Task (photograph a monument in a new and unique way)
  • November – Textures

In addition, the first three months for 2012 have also been assigned as follows: January – Twilight: Between Night and Day; February – Silhouette; and March – Picture within a Picture.

January 2011 print competition

HPS Print Competition - June 2010 judge, Kathy Adams

HPS members, don’t forget about the first print competition meeting for 2011 is coming up next Tuesday, Jan. 25th from 7—9 p.m. at the Tracy Gee Community Center.

This month’s special assignment is “The Narrow View.”

Paid members can submit up to two total matted prints of their most recent works in their respective groups. The prints are divided in color and monochrome (or black/white) categories and by skill level (Bronze, Silver, or Gold). New members start off in the Bronze group.

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate in the special assignment category. However, the total of two prints still applies.

Reminder: You must be a PAID HPS member to enter the competition! So, if you haven’t paid for 2011, please don’t forget to bring a check made out with the appropriate membership dues amount to the “Houston Photographic Society” and give it to HPS treasurer Bernie Levy or the president, John Kleb.

See you there!

First Meeting of 2011

The first meeting of 2011 will take place Tuesday, January 11 beginning 7 p.m. It is our Program Meeting and the first January meeting is always comprised of the year-end photo competition awards announcement, the transition of officers, and a potluck dinner.

The year-end judges are invited to speak about why they felt compelled to select the winners so we can learn from their thought process.

So, bring your appetite, a potluck dish (coordinate with Rachel Burychka) and let’s roll in the 2011 HPS year!

As always, visitors are welcome to participate, but please keep in mind that this meeting is a departure from the typical Program Meeting.

Monthly Print Competition – November 2010

WHEN: Tuesday, November 16 from 7–9 p.m.

Join us for the November 2010 print competition. HPS members may bring up to two total prints for review in their respective categories. A special category assignment may be one of the two prints. November’s special assignment is “Plains, Trains and Automobiles“.

PLEASE NOTE: We are meeting the third Thursday instead of the fourth Thursday this month because the Tracy Gee Community Center meeting place is closed the week of Thanksgiving.
