Welcome to Charlottesville Camera Club

Next meeting

Thursday, April 13, 2017 - 6:00pm

The judge is Bruce Dale

Theme: Old Paint

Old weathered barns, abandoned trucks and farm equipment, vintage graffiti, car graveyards, antique doors—these are all great places to find beauty in old paint. This assignment might be presented as an abstract, or as a complete object or scene, but must draw the viewer’s eye to the main subject of “old paint.”

The judge for our competition will be Bruce Dale. who has had over two thousand photographs published by National Geographic. Bruce is well known for landscapes taken all over the world. Books of his work include documentary photography done while traveling with gypsies from England to India, photographs of American mountain people, and The American Southwest--all published by National Geographic. Bruce will present a program titled “Beyond the Lens, The Golden Years at National Geographic” You can check out galleries of photographs by Bruce at http://www.brucedale.com/selected_photos/

Workshop--Getting off Auto!

Workshop

Tuesday, April 25, 2017 -

6:30pm to 8:45pm

Northside Library

Today's cameras are technological wonders. Just pick one up, turn it on, set it to "Auto," and SNAP!--most of the time you get a sharp, well-exposed photo. So, hey--isn't that good enough?

Many times it is. But then you see the images created by more experienced photographers and wonder: How did you get that beautiful flowing effect in that waterfall? How did you end up with that nice sharp flower against that soft, etherial background? Why is your running horse so sharp when I get nothing but blur? 

There is, in fact, much to be gained by learning to control you camera in ways that perfectly suit your subject. And that's what this workshop is all about. By the end of the evening you'll know how to take control of your camera's shutter speed, the diameter of the lens aperture, and the sensitivity of your sensor (the ISO)--and why doing so will enable you to "get off auto" and become a much more accomplished photographer.
