Welcome to Charlottesville Camera Club

Next meeting

Thursday, February 14, 2019 - 6:00pm

Theme: Glass in All Its Glory

Glasses to drink from or see through, fractured glass, beaded glass, an hour glass, molten glass, stained glass, buildings, bottles, jars, vases, tubes, fibers . . . the list goes on. Photographing glass requires careful attention to reflections and blown-out highlights. Lighting, important to all categories of photography, plays an especially important role in minimizing or avoiding distracting reflections, although in some cases an interesting reflection may enhance the photograph. However, for this competition, while your picture may include reflections, glass must be the main subject, not just a means of creating a reflection. For helpful information on equipment and techniques search the web on “photographing glass”.

Workshop

Saturday, February 2, 2019 - 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 or JPEGs ( sized to 1080 pixels on the longest side) to the meeting on a thumb drive.
