Welcome to Charlottesville Camera Club

Next meeting

Thursday, November 14, 2019 - 6:00pm

The judge is Mark Buckler

Theme: Print Competition

Please observe the following guidelines for the print competition:

  • You can enter as many as two prints. Each photo will receive a rating score. There is no requirement that the photo was taken within the past year. Photos must not have been entered in a club competition before, as either a print or a projection.
  • Photos can be printed on any media—paper, metal, or canvas—(paper must be matted), and also can be framed. The outside dimensions for the matted photo generally should not exceed 16 by 20 inches, or 400 square inches for square photos or panoramas. Upon request, allowances may be made to accommodate special circumstances.
  • Printing may be done by a commercial source or by another club member, provided that all adjustments affecting the appearance of the photo are made by the photographer.
  • There will be no assigned competition in November.

Our print competition will be judged by Mark Buckler. Mark lives on the Outer Banks of North Carolina and is well known for photographing the natural beauty and wildlife of the seashore. Mark leads photo tours and workshops in the Outer Banks, but also ventures into Alaska, Hawaii, the American Southwest and Iceland. His pursuit of wildlife images builds on his extensive experience as a wildlife field biologist. His work has been printed in dozens of magazines and other publications. Mark will present a program that highlights his work and shares his experiences in the field.

We're trying something new this month.

We'll be presenting a video course about the art of photo composition, by Tony Eveling. We'll go through the course step-by-step, stopping the video at various points to discuss the content and answer any questions you might have about it. The video also suggests some exercises that you can do on your own to improve your sense of photo composition.

The total course runs 110 minutes, so accounting for the time we take with questions and discussion, we will likely be covering the course in two sessions: one this month and one in November. (A workshop on mobile phone photography is scheduled for October.)

You can preview the video at https://www.udemy.com/course/mastering-the-art-of-composition-in-photogr...

So, we hope you'll be able to take part in this new take on club workshops!
