Event Description

Bob Primes, an internationally acclaimed cinematographer and photographer* is a part time resident of Salt Spring Island.  He has graciously offered to give a private presentation to the club on both his work and his techniques.  He plans to show us how to utilized parts of Lightroom and Photoshop that may have mystified many of us.

Our special evening with Bob will be on Wednesday, July 19, 7:00 PM at Portlock Park.  He will be using two monitors in order to both show the image and how he got there.

Currently Bob's images are on display at Steffich Gallery in Grace Point.  Please try to stop by Steffich's before the July 19 club gathering with him at Portlock.

This group will infuse some new energy and direction into the Club. Feedback from club members indicates that people would like more interactive educational activities (workshops, classes, small field trips etc.) and maybe a schedule of educational opportunities ahead of time so that people can plan to attend.

The Victoria Camera Club has an external speaker every month and are willing to share their list of speakers so we can participate, at a cost of $5 a person. The club has funds to cover this at the moment. This would require using the  Zoom format (which has worked so well during this Pandemic).

Club meetings will resume in October, giving this new group time to work out their ideas for new directions.

Some people are cautious about in person meetings (because of health issues) and others are ready and able to jump back in. Maybe in person meetings and Zoom meetings can co-exist. Something to talk about.

Maureen has offered to look into a monthly newsletter with, possibly, more coverage than the website offers such as emails, using facebook etc.

Avril would like to see an improved use of the website: more posts, more comments, more helpful critiquing. We might need a refresher course to remind us how to give constructive feedback.

Doug has a show about Covid in September at the library -  in the Community Program Room. He will give a talk on September 7th at Noon. This will be previously unseen material, not the triptychs we have seen on the website.

Photosynthesis has a virtual show coming up, starting on August 31st. Some club members also belong to this photography group.

There is no theme yet for the photography challenge in October but when that is decided it will be communicated to everyone.
