Welcome to Charlottesville Camera Club

Next meeting

Thursday, March 12, 2020 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

The judge is TBD

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 - 6:00-6:30

Workshop

Saturday, February 29, 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.)

Field Trip to Truck Graveyard

Workshop

Saturday, March 14, 2020 - 7:15am to 12:00pm

The "Truck Graveyard" near Columbia, Virginia, might be the very best venue for old vehicle photography on the East Coast. Word has it that the property will be sold sometime this year, which could mean that the acres of ancient, dilapidated trucks will be removed or the site closed to photographers.

Our club has visited this site several times in the past, and some great photos have been the result. So, don't miss out of what may be your last opportunity to shoot these beautiful of relics of the 1930s, 40s, 50s, and 60s.

If you're interested in taking this trip, PLEASE LET ME KNOW VIA E-MAIL AT LEAST A WEEK BEFORE THE DATE.

We will try to carpool from C'ville, leaving around 6:15 to arrive before sunrise. But you're free to drive on your own and arrive at any time you like. Rain date will be the next day, Sunday.
