Clinics

Trillium Photographic Club executive would like to announce a new procedure for submitting images to clinics.  Uploads page can be found under the “Clinics” menu and the dropdown menu “Upload Clinics” (for quick access click here)

Members can submit up to 5 entries per clinic.  To be considered for photographer of the year, you need 4 Pictorial, 4 Nature but only 2 Creative photographs for the current season,  with no more than half of the same subject matter (birds, flowers, people etc.).  However, the proficiency determination are still based on your top 10 pictures, regardless of category.

Trillium Photographic Club uses a half-point system allowing scores eg:  7.5

The “Creative” photography category is defined as photography that “alters reality in an obvious manner”.  The alterations have to be obvious to someone who has not seen the unaltered photograph and go beyond simply brightening or darkening a portion of it, as burning or dodging is allowed even in the strict “nature” category.

As for “Nature”, titles are not to be “catchy” but simply the scientific or common names of the realistically portrayed and easily identified subject(s).  The definitions of the categories are on p.8 of our Handbook.
