Welcome to Charlottesville Camera Club

Next meeting

Thursday, August 8, 2019 - 6:00pm

The judge is Randy Asnger

Theme: Keep it Simple

A bare minimum of elements can make a dramatic or moving photo. Photograph a landscape with just a few points of interest; or a simple vase with a single flower. Simplicity is about clarifying your message by excluding useless details. A photographic rule of thumb is to include objects only if they add value to your photograph. But this theme will challenge you to include as few items as possible to create a successful photograph. https://www.picturec...

Workshop

Saturday, July 27, 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 1000 to 2000 pixels on the longest side) to the meeting on a thumb drive.

Workshop--Getting It Sharp!

Workshop

Wednesday, August 21, 2019 - 6:30pm to 9:00pm

Northside Library

Quality of light, artistic composition, and a compelling subject all combine to make a great photo. But another key aspect of almost any successful photo is sharpness.

During this workshop you will learn all you need to know to make every shot you take as sharp as it can possibly be. We'll cover everything from lens quality and aperture settings to controlling camera movement, exact focusing, and using sharpening software. We will demonstrate and discuss techniques, hardware, and software, so you may want to bring your own camera, lenses, and tripod if you have any questions about using them to get the sharpest photos you can.
