Welcome to Charlottesville Camera Club

Next meeting

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

The judge is Greg Holden

Theme: Black and White

As we learned from Greg Holden in a presentation last October, black and white photography is an interpretation of the world, rather than a copy. In black and white photography, the absence of color fosters the full display of other powerful factors: light and shadow, shape and texture, mood and mystery. So, go on a search for scenes that allow you to use these factors to the maximum. Or go back through your collection of color photos taken at any time and find one that can be transformed into a new, powerful, black and white interpretation of the subject.

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

Greg Holden will judge the competition. Greg is a photographer from Longmont, Colorado who uses his photography to share with others how he sees the world. He enjoys being outside hiking in parks and looking for nature’s creations to photograph.  He looks for interesting patterns or textures in trees and rocks to form creative photos that make the viewer think. Although he won’t pass by a chance to photograph a beautiful landscape or a tranquil sunset, he’d rather be exploring abandoned places and capturing the details of the layers of paint and rust on a discarded automobile. Greg is president of his camera club in Colorado.  He enjoys teaching others and sharing his passion for photography and continues to speak and judge, virtually, at clubs throughout the MD and VA areas.You can see Greg’s work on his website imagesunderfoot.com

Continuing to See in Black and White
Colorado photographer Greg Holden will discuss how he seeks out and creates his monochromatic images. This is a follow-on to his presentation entitled “How to See in B&W” and will begin with a brief summary of that material before diving more in-depth to how Greg previsualizes his monochrome images and the choices he makes in post-protection to achieve his vision for each. Greg will show side-by-side color and B&W versions of his images to explain why he felt that image looked best in monochrome. He will also share his thoughts for other monochrome conversions such as sepia, selenium (blue tone) and bi-color grading in Adobe Lightroom.
