May Updates

Hello again…
We have a few things happening in May, and here they are:

Casual Meeting – Image Critiquing – Thursday, May 5th

Date:  Thursday, May 5th @ 7:00pm
Location:  CASA – small meeting room

At these meetings, members can immediate feedback for their images and participate in providing critique for images as prints, digital, or otherwise. The atmosphere is less structured than our regular meetings and intended to be very informal.

For those attending, bring along a few images that you’re stuck on, just aren’t sure about, or ones that you love but would like constructively critiqued by the group. Prints or digital images are welcomed.

Our annual Photo Scavenger Hunt will be held on June 2nd at 6:30pm. The rules are simple, teams are given a film camera and a list of objectives and 2 hours to locate and shoot each item or theme. Use the exposures on the film wisely so you can get all the items on your list. The results will be announced at the annual BBQ and at the June meeting. More details will follow as the date grows nearer.

Please note: this is a member-only event

Year-End Meeting – Thursday, June 16th

Date:  Thursday, June 16th @ 6:30pm
Location:  CASA – ATB Community Room

As June comes along, so does the Club year end. This is our chance to show our best. The monthly theme is handled a bit differently for June, in that you may submit images in up to four categories:

Digital
– single photo of your theme choice, anything goes.
– series of three with a connected theme of your choice.

Print
– single photo of your theme choice, anything goes.
– series of three with a connected theme of your choice.

Your fellow Club members will vote on all categories and there will be a small prize for first in each category.

The results from the Scavenger Hunt will be presented for those that couldn’t make it to the annual BBQ on the 8th.

That’s it for now… as always, more info for events will be sent as their dates draw closer. If you have questions, comments or suggestions, we’re always interested to hear what you think.

Thanks!!
