Welcome to Charlottesville Camera Club

Next meeting

Thursday, August 12, 2021 - 6:45pm to 8:30pm

The judge is Brian Zwit

Theme: In the Shadows

The subject is not the shadows, but rather something partly or completely within them. The interaction of light and shadow can enhance shape and form to give us clues as to the shape of a subject. The contrast it produces also adds proportion to the subject and emphasizes textures. From streetscape to landscape to portrait to still life and everything in between, shadows are a powerful element in great photography.

Meet & Greet 6:45 PM - 7:00 PM EDT

Brian Zwit will be judging our competition.  Brian lives in Northern Virginia, frequently judges for clubs in that area, and regularly appears as a speaker at the annual Nature's Visions Photo Expo.  He has judged several times for our club.  Brian is highly experienced as an instructor of photography and photo processing and as a leader of photography workshops.

Photo Review

Workshop

Saturday, August 28, 2021 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

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, upload up to three JPEGs (sized to 2000 pixels on the longest side) to the current photo review entry on the PhotoContest Pro website before the deadline.
(If you need help with that, check out the information available on the CCC website under Competition Info.)
