Thus little guy is so shy. I had to act quickly. I think it may be a bit blurry.

Sounds like an interesting club, Trudy.

Doug I was just getting used to my new camera the Olympus OMD EM-1 micro 4/3

We are very social. There are education nights the second Wednesday of the month that now includes members photo telling a story and members slide of photos they want to share. The member has to talk about these photos. It seems to have a good effect as the members get to know each other better. The Fourth Wednesday meeting is the Competition and Challenge. The Competition winner gets a 16X20 frame and matt with a gift certificate from London Drugs for a print. The First, Second and Third winners tell about the photo they entered. The Challenge is a small prize and all names go into a draw.

Good to know your club offers you those options Trudy. Victoria club also has active special interest groups and regular field trips but Salt Spring has still opted to remain more casual/social than be structured.

There is a new emerging group who get together early Monday mornings to go on a 'shoot' together, so I hope that will develop over time.

My Camera was set to S1/1600  ISO 1250   F11  300mm

I think I have a problem with my computer too. My colours come out different some times.

I looked at it again and I will have to lighten it in Light room.

Yes it is fab. I am very busy with the camera club here. We go on field trips a lot, up and down the Island. I also belong to two SIG (Special Interest Groups) The Available light and Nature and Landscape. It is a lot of fun when you have a small group of 10 to 12 with the same interest.

Thank you both.

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.
