Welcome to Charlottesville Camera Club

Next meeting

Thursday, March 14, 2024 - 7:00pm

The judge is Mark Buckler

Theme: On the Street

Street photography is a visual documentation of everyday life in society, whether in a busy city or in a small town. Aim for candid shots of people in public places that tell a story or capture a sense of place. But don’t ignore street scenes without people, which also can be evocative. Remember to ask for permission if shooting a child. For adults, permission is not necessary unless the photo is to be used commercially.

Meet and Greet 6:45 PM EDT

Judging for us this month will be Mark Buckler.  In December, Mark served as one of three judges for our year-end photo review.  Mark lives in North Carolina on the Outer Banks and specializes in wildlife and landscape photography.  He conducts photo tours there and at destinations in the US and abroad with wildlife and scenic subjects of interest.  Visit his website at bucklerphoto.com.

Presentation by Adrian Klein

Workshop

Wednesday, March 20, 2024 - 6:45pm to 8:00pm

Adrian Klein is a well-known landscape and nature photographer living in Oregon. He leads photo workshops and tours and gives presentations on various topics. He has worked as a portrait and wedding photographer and has been a contributing member of Professional Photographers of Oregon board of directors and a member of Photo Cascadia. For more information about Adrian and to see some of his beautiful photographs, go to his website at https://www.adrianklein.com/page/about/

Adrian will present a talk via Zoom called "In Search of the Hidden," which he describes here: "Finding compositions that work isn’t always easy, especially when trying to discover the smaller or more abstract scenes from the larger view we are taking in. I will share many examples where I found the photo I was most interested in that might not be apparent at first look due to “noise” from the larger surrounding. Through the photos, stories, and tips I share, photographers will have a glimpse into how I work to find these scenes, which can help them discover what they are interested in when out photographing."

Your club dues make presentations like this possible, so thank you for being a member of the Charlottesville Camera Club!
