Welcome to Charlottesville Camera Club

Next meeting

Thursday, November 11, 2021 - 6:45pm to 8:30pm

The judge is Jim Hamel

Theme: Photos After Dark

Nighttime can be creepy--think Halloween! But it offers unusual photo ops. First, our cameras detect colors in dim light far better than our eyes do. Take a long exposure in moonlight and you’ll be astounded. But shooting at night also offers opportunities for interesting photos that just can’t happen in daylight. Pack your tripod and a flashlight if you want to do some creative light painting to your subject.

Meet & Greet 6:45 PM - 7:00 PM EDT

Jim Hamel will judge our competition.  Jim captures outstanding images across a wide range of subjects but especially enjoys night photography and "scapes"--land, sea and urban.  For the last three years, his photographs received a gold medal in the International Photography Competition conducted by the Professional Photographers of America.  Jim leads photo tours in Ireland and France.  He created a course in night photography for the Digital Photography School and in October presented a program on night photography for CCC.  Galleries of his work can be viewed at https://jimhamel.smugmug.com/browse.

October Photo Review

Workshop

Saturday, October 30, 2021 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Online Zoom Meeting

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 photo 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.
