Welcome to Charlottesville Camera Club

Next meeting

Thursday, June 11, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

The judge is Rachel Wilson

Theme: Beautiful Clouds

Please note that for this month's competition will be lifting the rule about all entries having to be taken within the last year and allowing photos taken within the past two years.

Puffy white clouds against a clear blue sky are beautiful without a doubt. But might you find beauty in the threatening clouds of a coming storm? Or even clouds at night, highlighted by a glowing moon? For this assignment, you might capture clouds alone or clouds as part of a landscape or seascape. Just be sure that clouds are the predominant part of your photo. For tips and inspiration, check out:

Peer Review

Workshop

Saturday, June 27, 2020 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Online Zoom Meeting

Here’s your opportunity to get friendly feedback on your images from your peers. Want some suggestions on how you might improve an image before entering it in a competition? Having some difficulty getting the “look” you want with lighting, composition, or editing? Want to understand more about why a judge may have scored an image as he or she did? Then you’ll find this casual and supportive meeting helpful. And, if you choose to join in evaluating the work of others and contributing your thoughts, you will likely strengthen your own picture-taking skills. Members of all skill levels are welcome, and of course you’re welcome to just attend the meeting and observe.

If you’d like feedback on your photos, bring up to three TIFFs (sized to about 1500 pixels on the longest side) to the meeting on a thumb drive. (JPEGs are OK as well, but any editing we demonstrate on your photos will be more accurate in the TIFF format.)
