Welcome to Charlottesville Camera Club

Next meeting

Thursday, October 8, 2020 - 6:45pm to 8:30pm

The judge is Greg Holden

Theme: Hats

There are hats in stores and hats on heads—hats for protection, for fun, for style. There are rain hats, sun hats, baby hats, and granny hats. There mundane hats and those that make a bold statement. And don’t forget helmets, hardhats, and even headdresses.  Can you use an everyday item to tell a good story?

Meet & Greet - 6:45 - 7:00

The photo competition at our upcoming meeting will be judged by Greg Holden.  Greg lives in Denver, having moved there in 2019 from Bethesda, MD.  Greg is an aerospace engineer who finds an artistic outlet through photography.  He particularly enjoys finding interesting shapes and juxtapositions in nature while hiking. Little scenes that are easily overlooked help fuel his photographic creativity.  On October 20, Greg will give a presentation titled "Learning to See in B&W.”

Peer Review

Workshop

Saturday, October 31, 2020 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

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 peer 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.)

Hope to see you at the Zoom session on Saturday. Watch for the link in your e-mail inbox.
