Welcome to Charlottesville Camera Club

Next meeting

Thursday, August 13, 2020 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

The judge is Mary Louise Ravese

Theme: Abstracts and Altered Reality

Entries may be created by one or more of the following methods:

  1.     Camera movement. (Does not include panning to capture moving objects.)
  2.     The use of software, in which a photograph is altered to the point that it no longer reflects reality.
  3.     Photographing a subject in such a way that it becomes isolated from its context and where shapes, colors, lines, patterns, and textures predominate and provide primary interest. The context becomes unrecognizable and irrelevant.

  • Meet & Greet - 6:45 - 7:00.
  • Mary Louise Ravese will be returning to judge our competition this month.  She is an award-winning professional photographer from Raleigh, NC who specializes in nature, travel and creative photography.  Through her company, Bella Vista Photography, she offers instruction in photography and post-processig and leads photo workshops.

Peer Review--Virtual Session

Workshop

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

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, upload up to three JPEGs (sized to about 1500 pixels on the longest side) to PhotoContest Pro. (You'll see the peer review listed among the current competitions.) The deadline for the upload is Friday, July 24, at midnight.

You will receive a Zoom meeting link via e-mail the day before.

Hope to "see" you there!
