Field trip to Morven Farm

Workshop

Friday, July 15, 2022 - 7:00am to 10:00am

Following a successful field trip to Morven Farm last summer, we've arranged for another visit on Friday, July 15. To catch the good morning light, we will be allowed to arrive at 7:00 am. Parking is allowed ONLY in the field adjacent to the Meeting Barn. CCC police will be stationed on grounds to direct you to the parking area and to the hot photography spots.

The gardens should be beautiful there this time of year, so we hope you can make it. (Sorry that no Saturday mornings were open.)

July Photo Review

Workshop

Saturday, July 30, 2022 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Online Zoom Meeting

Here’s your opportunity to get friendly feedback on your images from your peers. Having some difficulty getting the “look” you want with lighting, composition, or editing? Want some suggestions on how you might improve an image before entering it in a competition? 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 two 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.)
