Welcome to Charlottesville Camera Club

Next meeting

Thursday, June 9, 2022 - 7:00pm to 8:15pm

The judge is TBD

Theme: Beams of Light

Beams of light, natural or human-made, shining through clouds or leaves, through doors and windows, within dusty or smoke-filled rooms, and so on. These beams of light are made visible when the air contains sufficient mist, smoke, or dust, and that's what we should be aiming for in this theme. However, because you may not get lucky enough with these conditions to get the photo you want, we're expanding this topic to include objects that are illuminated by narrow beams of light. Examples are a dark street scene with someone standing in a narrow shaft of light, an object on a windowsill isolated by a shaft of sunlight, or the dapples of light on a forest floor, caused by beams of light (visible or not!) filtering through the canopy.

Meet and greet at 6:15 - 6:30

Upcoming Club Events

Photo Review


Saturday, May 28, 2022 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

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.)
Hope to see you at the Zoom session. Watch for the link in your email inbox a few days before the event.
