Welcome to Charlottesville Camera Club

Next meeting

Thursday, May 20, 2021 - 6:45pm to 8:30pm

The judge is Jamie Konarski Davidson

Theme: Spring Garden

Some really nice subjects are right in our own backyards or maybe in a nearby arboretum, park, or botanical garden. Spring flowers, fruits, veggies, structures, or a an entire garden could make a nice subject, using techniques from macro to landscape. The use of natural light is ideal, especially when it is bright but overcast. The soft, diffused light is perfect to reveal detail. Maybe try a diffuser if it’s otherwise too bright, or take your subject indoors if necessary. And please don't forget: This theme is about SPRING gardens and is open to photos taken ONLY in the spring. But the good news is you can use photos taken in the spring of 2019 and 2020 as well as this year.

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

Photo Review

Workshop

Saturday, May 1, 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.)

Please note the new start time for this meeting.
