Photographic Events in the Time of COVID

Doug McMillin at the Library

Doug looks at the years 2020-2021, keeping his distance. The exhibition, titled "COVID FACES", runs throughout September and addresses the changes we have got used to in the faces around us, by pasting real masks on candid 'street' photographs of locals.

Maggie Vancek at Country Grocer Café

Maggie has gifted us with five of her cheerful images of nature, showing now at the Country Grocer Café and throughout September. It's a bright, convenient venue. We invite you to drop by.

PHOTOSYNTHESIS 2021

"The Entry" by Anette Schrage

Salt Spring's 'other' Photography Club has posted their virtual show for 2021. As always, the results are in the 100% category and well-worth more than a single visit. Click HERE.

ECLECTIC VISIONS 2021

"Urban Landplates" by timmy gibbon

The Salt Spring Photography Club's annual June event, Eclectic Visions, is being held online as a 'virtual' exhibition again this year, 2021. Click HERE to visit.

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.

ITEMS OF INTEREST

Speaker From 2019
Three years ago, 16-year-old Lucas Morton presented his work to the Club. His work and his presentation were amazing.
Now 19 he is still at it and was recently interviewed by the Lake Cowichan Gazette.
It would be interesting to have him speak to us again now that he has three more years under his belt.
