Welcome to Charlottesville Camera Club

Next meeting

Thursday, July 11, 2024 - 7:00pm

Theme: Weather

From storm clouds to sunbeams, from downpours to rain puddles, from sunbathing to trudging through snowdrifts. Lightning, ice-covered trees, birds braving a ferocious wind—weather and its effects can be photographed in many fascinating ways. What aspect of weather can you reveal with your camera and creative vision?

Meet and Greet 6:45 PM EDT

Macro Photography Workshop

Workshop

Sunday, June 23, 2024 - 5:00pm to 6:30pm

Ivy Creek

When you “think small” and shoot close-up, you reveal to yourself – and others – a whole new world that often goes unnoticed and unappreciated. But the closer you shoot, the bigger the challenges and the harder it is to get the kinds of quality images you expect. In this class, you’ll learn the essential tools and techniques for shooting close!

Participants should bring cameras, tripods, and any close-up equipment they might have, such as close-up lens attachments, macro lenses, and extension tubes. If you don't have any close-up gear, you can still attend, because you'll learn what you'll need to get into this kind of photography.

You will get the most from this class if you know the basics of how to operate lens aperture, shutter speed, and ISO settings on your camera, as well as how each setting interacts with the others (often called the "exposure triangle").

This workshop will take place in the Education Building, and then outdoors, weather permitting, at Ivy Creek Natural Area and Historic Riverview Farm. Up to 10 supporters of ICNA have been invited to attend, and we're limiting CCC member attendance as well. A CCC Google Groups email announcement will be made several days before the event, and the first 10 to respond will be accepted to this session. Another macro workshop will be announced later in the year for those who miss the cut.

Here’s your opportunity to get friendly feedback on your photos from your fellow club members. Do you just want to learn more about the basics of taking a good photo? Are you having some difficulty getting the “look” you want with lighting and composition? Want to do better in our competitions and juried exhibits? Whatever your level of experience or ability, you’ll find these casual and supportive meetings helpful—and just plain fun!

You’ll get the most from these meetings by posting your own photos. But of course you’re welcome to just show up and observe the photos posted by others.

If you’d like to show us your photos, upload up to two JPEGs (sized to about 2000 pixels on the longest side) to the current photo review entry on the PhotoContest Pro website (www.photocontestpro.com). The deadline is always midnight before the meeting. (If you need help with uploading, check out the information available on the CCC website under Competition Info, or contact Gerry Bishop via email.)
