Goodwood Photo Competition

Post by Roger Pennington » Tue Feb 26, 2019 7:01 pm

I belong to a group called the "Independent Goodwood Photographers' Guild" (IGPG). This is a group based around a closed Facebook group, intended to allow people who take photos at Goodwood to display their work to others, discuss techniques, etc. It's grown steadily and now has over 1000 members (including both amateur and professional photographers). Each year at the end of the year, we hold a photo competition amongst the members, this again has grown over the years and this year attracted some 400 entries from 61 photographers.

There were 10 categories to enter, you could enter one photo in each of 7 categories of your choice. In each category, certificates were awarded for First, Second, Third, and Highly Commended, and points were awarded as well. The points were then added up to decide the overall awards.

On Sunday we held an exhibition of all the entries, after which the results were announced. I was really pleased to hear that I had got first place in the "close-up detail" category (for the shot of the snow-covered Bentley) and second in the "modern Goodwood" category, (for the shot of the electric Nio EP9 kicking up the dust). Finally, I was totally gobsmacked to find that overall I had been awarded the trophy for "IGPG Best Amateur Photographer 2019".

Nice one Roger, always a pleasure to see your photo's, how many hard drives have you filled so far then?

Many thanks for the kind remarks, everyone. :D

Richard, The Cooper's bonnet was already like that when I arrived (honest, officer! :lol: ) I thought it might have happened earlier that day, but I mentioned it to someone else who was already there, and they said they thought it had had a flash fire in the carbs on a previous outing.

Mike, That's an interesting question. I currently use two independent back-up hard drives, both of 2TB capacity. My complete photo archive since I changed to digital in early 2003 takes up 1.5 TB and is mirrored on both those hard drives. In addition the last couple of years current photos (over 500GB), also reside on the HD in the PC - that means I can access recent work without referring to the archive. Then there's the other hard drives that have become obsolete over the years as they're simply not big enough :roll:

It's amazing how much the storage requirement has increased as time has gone on, for several reasons - I can get to more events now, as I'm retired, so I take more pictures, and improvements in technology in cameras mean that the images themselves are much bigger - I've just uploaded some images I shot today, using Raw format for best quality, and each image is almost 30MB in size. So you're always chasing your tail - space gets larger and cheaper, but your need for it increases exponentially! :shock:

Well done, Roger, your photographs always meet the 'excellent' standard and the awards are well deserved. I, too, had missed the original posting so thanks Mikey for bringing it back up.
Roger, have you moved on to self-publishing yet? Since I retired, I find that I am taking fewer photographs but I do enjoy working through my back-catalogue to create a new way of showing my best work. May you continue to dominate...

Congrats Roger! Well done... :D
Some brilliant pics. I particularly like the Jag MK.II's - excellent action shot with the grass coming off the tyres of IVA 400. And the lighting on your Revival Style picture of the Breadvan and Swb is fab.

I am clearly but an amateur photographer, but for what it's worth, here's a link to some of my pics from last years Goodwood Revival: https://viaretro.com/2018/09/twenty-yea ... d-revival/
I like to think that I got lucky and walked away with a couple of decent shots...

great website, loved the narrative and pics. I was lucky enough to start going to Goodwood festival of speed from about 1994 so caught it and the revival early before it got so busy but as you have said its a fantastic event.
