Print Exchange

Feeling lucky? How would you like to become the owner of a high-quality, possibly award winning print by a TPS member? All you have to do to receive it is send us one of your high-quality, possibly award winning prints. Yes, it's time again for the Texas Photographic Society's Members Print Exchange. We're better than the Lottery, because everybody wins! Your prints should be original and of exhibition quality in size and presentation. The print should be archivally processed, mounted and over-matted, we recommend two inch minimum mat space on each side of the print. TPS acts as the exchange point between TPS members participating in the Print Exchange program. Prints will be accepted at the mailing address given below. All prints received will be randomly reassigned and re-shipped by TPS to those submitting prints. Shipping materials will not be returned, therefore disposable packaging is advised One quick and inexpensive method for packing is to sandwich the matted print between two larger pieces of foam core board and then either tape all edges or wrap everything in kraft paper. (Austin Photographers Prints may be delivered by hand, but shipping materials must still be provided.) Although we at TPS will treat your beloved prints as though they were our own, TPS cannot be responsible for damage due to the well-documented vagaries of the shipping companies. Send your print and a $10.00 check made to TPS (for reshipping fees) by May 15 (postmarked) to: Lemuel Johnson c/o TPS Print Exchange 11913 Hornsby Street Austin TX 78753 Questions?

Practice, Practice, Practice by Richard Newman: Too many times as photographers

we let the camera do the work. "Just put it on automatic, you'll get a picture". When we do this, unless we're trying to make party pictures or just quick snaps, we are not photographers. Photography is one of the most opinionated art forms, you choose where to stand, what lens to use, to blur the background or keep it sharp, oh yea, color or black and white fits into this mix somewhere along the line. The camera does not see the world the same as you do, it flattens everything out, it's a hand holdable time machine. So what do we do with it? Practice, you don't even have to expose a frame, hold it to your eye, move it around, look at the world the way the camera sees. Make photographic practice part of your daily routine, how can any one of us expect to get better at anything without practice? If we wanted to play for the New York symphony, do you think you could do it without dedicating yourself to your instrument. Practice can happen at any time, but one place it can't happen is when you don't carry your camera with you, don't live the "wish I had my camera to get a picture of that" lifestyle, carry your camera and use it. Right now as photographers we've never had so many great tools at our disposal, these tools make our lame excuses for why we don't practice our photography, heck we don't even have to pay for film if we practice with our digital machines, another excuse down the drain. After practice, the rewards start to roll in, goodness we start taking better pictures, pictures we like to look at later. We also start to develop a personal style, our picture start to look like we even know what we're doing, that should be enough reward for any photographer. from your local home improvement store and buy high quality, high CRI Solux bulbs from tlistore. These lights are directional so plan on directing the bulbs towards a wall for indirect lighting, or purchase the Solux diffusers. This higher quality lighting will allow you to perceive finer details in your prints and allow your prints to look more like the image you see on a calibrated display. Photographers that make this switch are ecstatic about the results.

The Digital Column by Scott Martin:

thoughts and tips from digital photography consultant Scott Martin ( Incandescent lighting in digital darkrooms and studios causes all sorts of trouble. It is narrow spectrum, yellow, energy inefficient, and it contributes to eye fatigue. Most importantly incandescent lighting leads to poor print-toscreen color matching as we cannot calibrate displays to completely match the exceptionally poor qualities of incandescent light. Consider purchasing track lighting with MR16 fixtures

speak of the concept of "letting go", I am often assailed and accused of "not being realistic." I hear all about the realities of people's lives and the impossibility of the pursuits of their dreams. It is they, however, who are not realistic. The reality is that they are scared to death! Scared of relinquishing control of their predictable lives, scared of change, scared of the unknown, scared of failing, scared of being laughed at, scared of the future, scared of the past, scared of being wrong. And scared of letting go! Their self-doubt and stubborn insistence wickedly fuel a self-defeating, self-fulfilling prophecy. They have sentenced themselves to life in a hamster cage. Much of our upbringing hinges around a destructive, little, four-letter word, "CAN'T," often followed by potentially detrimental consequences: "You can't do that or you'll get hurt." "You can't wander away or you'll get lost." "You can't wear those strange clothes or people will make fun of you." "You can't make a mistake or you'll let down your teammates." Can't, can't, can't! But the truth--the reality, per se--is that you can, can, can! In Awaken the Giant Within, author, Anthony Robbins writes of an amazing man who became paralyzed from the neck down at the


age of fourteen. Ed Roberts is confined to a wheel chair and breathes through a mechanical device. Robbins expounds, "Facing a multitude of myths about the capabilities of the physically challenged, Ed educated the public and initiated everything from wheelchair access ramps and special parking spaces to grab bars. He became the first quadriplegic to graduate from the University of California, Berkeley, and he eventually held the position of director of the California State Department of Rehabilitation." Ed Roberts swam against that tide and helped millions along the way. Why? How? From the moment of birth, your well-meaning parents and caretakers (hopefully) lovingly protected you from harm of every sort--strategically keeping you on the course of the tried and true. Protection is, after all, a primal instinct. Protection of our physical selves, of our egos, of our possessions, and of course, of our loved ones. However, as we mature, we feel compelled to free ourselves of that proverbial "Can't trap." When you do the work necessary and consciously travel your own path, you grow to realize that many of these rules have worn out their purpose. New, constructive guidelines must be initiated if you are to evolve into a fully realized human being. Pure logic substantiates that that entails letting go. Changing. Growing.
