Main Activities

Photography Meetings

Each month from September to April we have two meetings, one for digital images and one for mounted prints. A week before the meeting, the images are submitted digitally. Formatting requirements are explained inside the members’ area.

Our club invites a local professional or experienced photographer to provide feedback, to critique, and to score the submitted pictures. We call this judging, but it really means we ask for his or her feedback and advice on our work.

The judge previews the images, then presents his opinions at our meetings. The feedback comes in the form of some constructive comments and a three-part score. Up to five points are awarded each for composition, impact, and technical merits. A score of three is considered good, four means very good, and five is excellent for a possible total of 15.

At the digital meeting, members view all the submissions on a screen while our judge comments and gives scores. On print night, all photos are displayed on viewing racks and then each photo is placed on an easel for the judge to review. Results are recorded on this website in the members’ section.

At the end of the year, we celebrate our work with friends and family at Salon, a banquet and awards ceremony. We send information and entry forms to all members starting in early spring.

Training and Education

One or two meetings a month focus on various aspects of
photography education and techniques, such as Photoshop
or Lightroom, etc., as well as camera techniques and tips,
through formal presentations or hands-on workshops.

 

Field Trips

Organized fields trips take place three or four times
throughout the year to photograph scenic
landscapes, interesting events, historical landmarks or
other subjects of interest to members.
