Definitions
Black & White Photography (Monochrome - FIAP)
A black and white image is one with tones from very dark grey (black) to very clear grey (white) A black and white image
toned entirely in a single colour will be able to stand in the black & white category and can be reproduced in black &
white in the catalogue. On the other hand a black and white image modified by partial toning or by the addition of one
colour to a part of the image becomes a colour image and should be entered in the colour category. This type of image
will be reproduced in the colour pages of the catalogue.
Definition of Nature Photography (PAGB Feb 2013)
Nature photography is restricted to the use of the photographic process to depict all branches of natural history, except
anthropology and archeology, in such a fashionthat a well- informed person will be able to identify the subject material
and certify its honest presentation. The story telling value of a photograph must be weighed more than the pictorial quality
while maintaining high technical quality. Human elements shall not be present, except where those human elements
are integral parts of the nature story such as nature subjects, like barn owls or storks, adapted to an environment
modified by humans, or where those human elements are in situations depicting natural forces, like hurricanes or tidal
waves. Scientific bands, scientific tags or radio collars on wild animals are permissible. Photographs of human created
hybrid plants, cultivated plants, feral animals, domestic animals, or mounted specimens are ineligible, as is any form of
manipulation that alters the truth of the photographic statement.
No techniques that add, relocate, replace, or remove pictorial elements except by cropping are permitted. Techniques
that enhance the presentation of the photograph with out changing the nature story or the pictorial content, or without
altering the content of the original scene, are permitted including HDR, focus stacking and dodging/burning. Techniques
that remove elements added by the camera, such as dust spots, digital noise, and film scratches, are allowed. Stitched
images are not permitted. All allowed adjustments must appear natural. Color images can be converted to greyscale
monochrome. Infrared images, either direct - captures or derivations, are not allowed.
Images used in Nature Photography competitions may be divided in two classes: Nature and Wildlife. Images entered in
Nature sections meeting the Nature Photography Definition above can have landscapes, geologic formations, weather
phenomena, and extant organisms as the primary subject matter. This includes images taken with the subjects in
controlled conditions, such as zoos, game farms, botanical gardens, aquariums and any enclosure where the subjects
are totally dependent on man for food.
Images entered in Wildlife sections meeting the Nature Photography Definition above are further defined as one or more
extant zoological or botanical organisms free and unrestrained in a natural or adopted habitat. Landscapes, geologic
formations, photographs of zoo or game farm animals or of any extant zoological or botanical species taken under
controlled conditions are not eligible in Wildlife sections. Wildlife is not limited to animals, birds and insects. Marine
subjects and botanical subjects (including fungi and algae) taken in the wild are suitable wildlife subjects, as are carcasses
of extant species.

MCPF ROLL OF HONOUR
TO ALL MCPF CLUB MEMBERS and SECRETARIES.
In 1996 MCPF introduced a Roll of Honour, and the first awards have been made
at the subsequent Annual General Meetings. Recipients to date are listed in the
current Guide and Directory.
This award recognises outstanding service to the Midlands Counties Photographic
Federation, and clubs are invited to nominate individuals whom they consider to
have made a significant contribution.
This can be work in any area, practical or administrative, for instance: lecturing, judging,
setting up a service to the Federation.
It does sometimes happen that work is being done without the knowledge of Council, for a
variety of reasons, and we would really appreciate hearing about any person that you would
like considered for this honour. Please get in touch if you would like to have a chat about
this award.
If your club has a member who has contributed greatly to the MCPF would you please write
to the President or myself, stating your case for that person.
Thank you
Mary Jenkins

NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY in 3D
Saturday 7th February 2015 – 2:30pm
St Barbara's Church Hall, 24 Rochester Road, Earlsdon, Coventry, CV5 6AG
Entrance: £2.50 including refreshments. First time visitors free.
Nature Photography is a popular subject for 3D photographers and can provide some of the
most breathtaking images of the natural world as never seen before. Our meetings use
cinema like large screen 3D projection in glorious full colour 3D providing a glimpse into
the natural world in true dimensions just like being there.
Close up photography of the natural world can provide some surreal images, but in 3D they
are unforgettable, lifelike, mesmerising and when faced with a 6 foot butterfly or a bee the
size of football hovering in the room - even quite scary.
Please join us for an afternoon of amazing 3D images, 3D AV shows and 3D videos,
covering the plant and animal world in public gardens, Hebridean islands and our own back
gardens. Flowers and plants, birds, bees and butterflies - on land, in the air and even
underwater wildlife. For example 3D photographic video and time lapse techniques have
been used to produce AV shows of the life cycles of lepidotera (butterflies and moths).
In the first half of the meeting members of The Stereoscopic Society will talk about how
they take "normal", macro and micro (with a microscope) stereoscopic (3D) photographs,
not only stills but also 3D videos - of the natural world. The technique of putting
photographs and video clips into 3D AV shows using commercial software such as Magix
will also be covered in some detail.
