Do you want to find out if SLPS is for you? Come along to one of our Thursday evening meetings at CADWA L16 1JP, 8pm to 10 pm (see MEETINGS page for details/map).
We also have a ‘Development Group’ meeting once a month.
Just turn up at 7.45 or, better still, contact Angelica to let her know you are coming. (No need to bring anything with you.)
Wow! What a great series we had this season. Lots of our newer members joining the party and giving us some splendid images, and some very good final placings as well. Thank you to you all.
In the Colour Print Section, Congratulations go to Barbara Green and Irene Drummond who shared First Place.
In the Mono Print Section, First Place also goes to Irene Drummond.
In the PDI section First Place goes to Alan Shufflebotham.
And I would like to give a Very Big Thank You to William McDonough, who is our Monthly Competition Secretary, for all the hard work he has put in this last few years on the competitions. William is stepping down and we will be looking for a new Organiser for the monthly competitions for the 2015-15 season.
As usual an excellent set of demonstrations at Sunday’s Development Group meeting from Irene Drummond, Ken Dobson and Mike Lawson on Cutting and Mounting images for competitions. A Big Thank You to all three for sharing your expertise, time and your cutters for members to practice cutting there own mounts. (As seen in attached photographs).
A number of members also enjoyed the time to chat about photographic “problems” over a coffee. Good all round meeting.
See you all next month… Joan

Irene has been mixing it up with the top folk in the L&CPU competition.
She has received a commended in the Open Colour Print Section with “Welcome to Portugal” There were 1st, 2nd and 3rd placings and the rest of the awards are commended. So in effect Irene has come 4th. Woo Hoo!!
There are more SLPS members in the awards section as well.
Well done also to Alan Shufflebotham and to Noel George who were flying the SLPS flag for us. Below are the links to the results that have been published.
Individual Category Results
Print Worker of the Year Results
Our judge for the night was none other than the irrepressible, the one and only and our own, Ted Baker FRPS. (I think he favours the girls as the girls are at it again!)
Barbara Green won Best Colour Print, Irene Drummond won Best Mono Print and for the guys, Alan Shufflebotham won the Best PDI Image. Irene also won the Best Overall Image of the Night.
Hardly surprising as Street Photography is a genre easily embraced by the complete beginner or more experienced amongst our membership – easy in terms of camera equipment and opportunities here in Liverpool!
Adding to the excitement of the evening’s critique and judging is the anticipation of which members will win the three coveted awards of Photographer of the Year (for colour print, mono print and digitally projected image). League tables can be viewed here, with potential winners highlighted.
Review and photos by Mal Holmes
The Society welcomed Martin Berry from Warrington Photographic Society, founded in the 1880′s making it one of the oldest Photographic Societies around (LAPA/SLPS was founded in the 1850′s).
Martin gave us a valuable insight into the running and rules of the early Society and included some great early images, of the Warrington Membership of the late 1800′s and early to mid 1900′s.
It was so good to look back to an earlier photographic era in time, and view digitised images of local Social History including the fashions and architecture of the day, through the original ‘lantern slides’ of the Society.
