The Year That Never Was

Like many photo societies, ADAPS has been having weekly Zoom meetings and it's been a great way to keep things alive over 2020, the year that never was. Likewise, after a while I have relented and started to do competition judging over Zoom. It does work in that competitions can be held and judged, but it's not the same as being at a venue in person. One thing is the bandwidth and therefore the resolution of images being shown, so it's a good idea to have the images upfront for a proper viewing under the best conditions. Otherwise images that look blown out, for example, might not be blown out at all.

The other slightly disconcerting thing is that there's no audience feedback, so little potential for gasps of horror or murmers of agreement from the audience. I guess that in TV sudios presenters are well used to talking to a blank wall so to speak, but it does seem strange at first. So the only answer is just to carry on regardless, Still, having the competitions is great in that it helps keep things alive and, hopefully, one day sanity will return and we will all shuffle back to our various clubrooms.

I'm just looking now at some of my own competion entries that I have enjoyed saring. Some have done well, some not, but I've loved them all!
