Welcome to Charlottesville Camera Club

Next meeting

Thursday, February 13, 2020 - 6:00pm

The judge is Jamie Konarski Davidson

Theme: Black and White

By creating a black and white, or “monochrome” photo, you are bypassing color to emphasize other aspects of a subject, such as form, texture, and contrasting tones. When a potential subject speaks to you through these visual qualities, then all that remains is composing, capturing, and editing to bring out the best the subject has to offer.

Dinner with the judge, at Applebee's on Pantops, 5:00-6:00.  Everyone welcome.          

Meet & Greet - 6:00-6:30.

The judge for our competition will be Jamie Konarski Davdson, from Greenville, NC.  Jamie is an award-winning freelance outdoor & nature photographer with a passion for capturing and sharing the beauty of the natural world.  Her images range from macro and abstracts to intimate, grand and rural landscapes in color and infrared.  She teaches photography classes in Greenville and leads photo workshops throughout the Southeast.  You can view galleries of her work at https://newlifephotos.photoshelter.com/portfolio.  Jamie will present a program titled "Creativity in the Gardens," that includes gardens in general as well as photography of flowers, both regular and macro.

Peer Review

Workshop

Saturday, January 25, 2020 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Northside Library

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.)
