Throughout the year SYPC have a schedule of 6 bi-monthly member competitions.
Brian Swinyard – was our Round 1 external judge for the first of our Bi-Monthly 2019 Competitions. Brian has visited SYPC some 4 times over the years either as a judge or a speaker and is always very welcome. Brian’s constructive review of the prints and digital images was well received drawing on many years of Photographic experience, with words of encouragement and constructive comments for improvement.
Brian reviewed and commented on 86 images (36 prints and 50 digital images). All of Brian’s comments and suggestions were well received we look forward to Brian’s return to SYPC in 2020 as either a speaker or judge.
