Welcome to Charlottesville Camera Club

Next meeting

Thursday, May 9, 2019 - 6:00pm

The judge is Jon Golden

Theme: From Highways to Byways

There are many ways to take photographs of paths and roads. They are a great way to incorporate leading lines into your images. Roads, trails, or paths are inherently leading because they go somewhere, give us a feeling of motion, and the lines often point so far inwards that they reach a vanishing point – the place where two or more lines converge into theoretical infinity. When leading lines, such as roads, connect the foreground to the background of a scene, they help to create depth and dimensionality that draws the viewer into the image. But perhaps you can come up with an original way to photograph highways or byways.

Judging and presenting in May will be Jon Golden. Jon is a UVA graduate and a resident of Charlottesville. But his professional assignments have taken him to more than 40 countries and he will be presenting work from his travels.

Peer Review

Workshop

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

"Basics" Workshop

Workshop

Wednesday, May 15, 2019 - 6:30pm to 8:45pm

Northside Library

Following up on our first basics workshop in January, we'll be introducing beginning photographers to the fundamentals of photo composition. All more experienced photographers are welcome to come for a "refresher" or to contribute their knowledge to the learning experience.

We'll look at 13 guidelines ("rules") for composition and how they aid in the design of a good photo. We'll also point out where it pays to break them.
