Hi,
I just signed up with PSS in late Dec 03 and want to gather some feedback from the members of this forum if anyone has attended any of the courses or outing conducted / organized by them?
Is it good ?
Outing
Courses

Beside organized cources and outing, any other benefits, wonder if there is any other benefits gained as a PSS member..

They have a critique session on Fridays in the evenings. Bring yr slides or prints and present them to the more experience photogs n "old birds" for comment. Be prepared for a no holds barred critique session tho. Also go for their LRPS, APPS and FRPS certifications where yr work is judged by external judges from the photographic/imaging industry. Personally I don't think the outings are of much use but look out for their overseas trips.

I joined PSS recently too, although I have not received the membership details yet.

They have courses ranging from basic photography to studio to lighting, etc. (check out www.pss1950.org). I just attended the Creative & Travel photography course in January. It was about 6 classroom lessons plus 2 outings (morning & evening). Well, I'm not sure how one would quantify benefits from the courses, but one thing for sure, photography is a very subjective art. You get 10 photographers to shoot a subject and likelihood is that you may find 10 different images with varying composition or angle. I've seen it from the images we all took during those outings.

personally, what I learnt from the course is how others view or see objects and then I adapt my own style with it.

There are also photo competition which PSS organizes. The 2003 one ran on a bi-monthly basis and I think the last competition is due end Feb 2004. Theme for this month is "People". Competition are fun too... if u're into that kinda fun.

If u're a member and not sure where to start, visit the place at Selegie Arts Ctr. Also, go up to the 3rd floor - they occassionally have exhibits up there. Not sure if the Singapore River monochrome is still there... but good way to learn is to look at others' work.

Don't bother to send emails to them. They hardly reply ;( . If you need info,
Call them its much faster. Also, their operational hours also kind of odd and their staff work on shift patterns.
