As you know we meet monthly at The Crofton Room at Harbour House on the 2nd Wednesday of the month. The meeting usually has a few minutes of club related issues followed by a short presentation on technical issues. This is followed by a a critique session based on photos taken by club members on a theme decided upon at the previous months meeting. (This month’s theme is Festive.) We also have an informal weekly coffee gatherings at the Currently at Salt Spring Inn - 10am Monday mornings.
Feel free to post a blog, start a discussion on the forum or post images for critique.
In the interest of view-ability the club limits the posting of one photo per day. If you have a series of images, post the first one in photos and then place the others in comments.
All photos posted to an album will also appear on the main page, so do add one image a day to your albums.
Thanks for joining and I hope that it proves useful to you. Don't forget to wade in on the critique, and post your two-bits worth of commentary on others photos.

Pierre introduced the new team who will help shape the Club in the future.
Plus returning executive members:
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.
