Welcome to Charlottesville Camera Club

Next meeting

Theme: Beautiful Blur

Although abstracts caused by camera motion are not usually allowed in the Assigned category, this month we are making an exception. The photo must be blurred either through the motion of your camera or the motion of the subject, not as a result of computer manipulation. Create a blurred background to pinpoint a bicyclist, or keep the background sharp and blur the bicycle—either way will suggest movement and speed. Capture moving water/waves with a slow shutter speed, artistically blur a scene by moving your camera horizontally or vertically, catch an athlete in the midst of a shot . . . We live in a world of motion, and there are endless ways of showing this through photography.Try the following website, or Google “motion blur in photography.” http://digital-photography-school.com/13-places-to-practice-taking-beaut... motion-blur-images/

Peer Review

Workshop

Saturday, May 27, 2017 -

2:00pm to 3:45pm

Northside Library

Our Peer Review sessions are great opportunities 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.
