Welcome to Charlottesville Camera Club

Next meeting

Thursday, March 9, 2017 - 6:00pm

The judge is Mark Buckler

Theme: Black and White

Out of necessity, the pioneers of photography expressed their art in black and white. The keys to good B&W images are strong contrast (pure black and pure white somewhere in the image), a subject with strong form, pattern and texture, and lighting that enhances these qualities. This month we challenge you to learn to “see” in terms of black and white (sepia also acceptable according to Rules of Competition). The following website may be helpful. http:// photography.tutsplus.com/tutorials/mastering-the-art-of-black-and-white- photography--photo-280

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 images, bring up to three TIFFs ( sized to 1080 pixels on the longest side) to the meeting on a thumb drive.

Workshop--Your camera, demystified!

Workshop

Wednesday, March 15, 2017 -

6:30pm to 8:45pm

Northside Library

How do I focus this thing? What's the difference between "Program" and "Auto"? What is "white balance" all about? What's the difference between manual focus and manual exposure? If you're just beginning to use your camera, or if you know the basics of its operation but still have some questions about how best to operate it, then this workshop is for you. We'll have stations set up, each attended by someone knowledgeable about Nikon, Canon, Sony, and other top brands, where you can sit down and have even your most basic questions answered.

We're hoping to open this event to the public as a way to attract more people to our club, so stay tuned for details.
