Camera Club Members PLEASE READ:
The October meeting will be held the 2nd Thursday of October, rather than the usual first week. Meeting rooms were unavailable at our normal date.
October 11, Thursday at 6:45PM
In honor of October and Halloween, the assignment is to shoot yourself preferably, in a unique manner or character, sort of like a digital costume if you please. Try to be expressive and creative to use your face and image in a surprising or unique way.
PLEASE BE SELECTIVE IN SHARING IMAGES:
Photo assignments are chosen to help photographers shoot new and different subjects or use various techniques that aren’t their usual every day shooting. It is always hoped that members are creating new images for these assignments and that they are shot with intention to best fit that assignment. We have been fortunate that attendance has been plentiful at meetings. Members frequently enjoy including images of other things they have been shooting during the month that are “off-topic” of the assignment, and we don’t want to discourage that. However, we are viewing such a large number of images at the meeting, the images aren’t able to receive the time and discussion that some warrant. Please limit your images to a maximum of 6 photos that you provide on USB stick for the club to view at that meeting. This helps you wisely select the best images to show that best fit the assignment or your current shooting and each image will make a better impact. Limiting one’s gallery to a select number of images always enhances the hook it makes to the viewer.
RENEW CAMERA CLUB DUES:
Please renew your dues each year as you complete a calendar year of membership. We are so fortunate to not have expenses for meeting rooms and that we are able to digitally deliver the newsletter and content on the website. We are not currently faced with any large expenses to meet, and will continue to allow the funds to grow from memberships for possible future projects. We do not wish to have to send out renewal notices so please, on your own honor, make your yearly contribution of $25 to the club.
MEMBER PHOTO GALLERIES:
At one time, the website designer put your contributed images into a gallery for each member, then later we installed a gallery program to host your images. As things have evolved online, we now LINK to member’s online photo galleries as a way to show the body of works that our members create. It is a great asset to the club when you share your online photo galleries as prospective new members can see the range of shooting styles and subjects that makes up our membership. If you wish to have us link to your online website, photo gallery, Flick’r account, etc., please write down the link and bring it to the next meeting. We will update the links once a month as we receive new requests. If you aren’t currently online with a gallery of your images, you may wish to consider Flick’r as a simple way to do so at no cost. Please remember that sharing Facebook pages, would require you to remove all privacy settings from your Facebook page so that those who aren’t in your Friends list are able to see your images.
FACEBOOK PAGE FOR CLUB:
We do have a Page on Facebook! Please feel free to post crazy new stuff you are shooting or to invite others to join you on a shooting adventure. Please LIKE the page so that your “Friends” on Facebook will see posts on your wall from our club.
SCOTT KELBY PHOTO WALK OCTOBER 13, 2012, 9AM to 11PM:
