DECEMBER 2021 NEWSLETTER

          SaltSpring Photography Club December Newsletter

NOVEMBER MEETING NOTES:

  • Standing in for Simon, Wendy led last month's meeting.
  • Ellen reported that she is unable to do the slideshow for January and asked for a volunteer replacement. Avril is taking that on.
  • The Club is looking for a replacement for Doug McMillan's role in organizing the Country Grocer deli/coffee shop displays for 2022. This wall space is shared with the SS Painter's Guild so the Club has the space every second month- 6 times a year.
  • November’s presentation by Clive Jones was arranged by Kahsia Hartwell. Thank you Kahsia for your work in bringing this engaging presenter to the Photo Club. Jones’ December presentation focussed on  “Minimalist Photography” and he will be returning in January for a second presentation. In this upcoming presentation, Jones will discuss working with colour, common presentation traps and how to avoid them, and post-processing and printing your work.

   JANUARY EVENTS:

   ANNUAL ARTSPRING LOBBY SHOW:

   The Photo Club's annual ArtSpring Lobby Show 2022 is rapidly approaching. The hanging date is Tuesday,       January 4th at 10:00 am

   This show is an opportunity for Photo Club members to submit any image the photographer wants to exhibit,    without the constraints of size or subject matter.  Some members submit their most unusual, most beautiful, most interesting or most technically challenged image of the preceding year. Some submit their most comical, studious, colourful or accomplished composition.  Some simply submit their favourite image or one that caused deeper thought in themselves or their peers.

 

   Most of the images are offered for sale, some are not and are just for ‘show’; this is the artist’s choice.  Contact information is provided on the information tags for each image.

 

   If you are interested in submitting your work for the show please email Wendy Rosier at wrosier@gmail.com.

 

   The information needed is as follows and is due by December 31st so that tags can be printed.

   Title:

   Your name:

   Price:

   Contact Information (Email or Phone number):

 

   As usual, there is no charge for entering the show but so far we have only six photographers submitting work so there is room for more.

   We are looking forward to seeing what you all have been creatively seeing in this past year.

 

   MONTHLY SLIDESHOW:

   The challenge is the relationship between NEGATIVE and POSITIVE space in a photograph. Your slides will need to be in by Monday, January 10th. Please put the order you'd like them to be shown and your name in the file name, as in Negspace, Avril, #1. And sent to:  ssiphotoclubslideshow@gmail.com 

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Using examples of his own work Guy will illustrate his philosophy of how photography can express concepts and emotions beyond the recording of visual experience.
