Another Perspective of Photography... Underwater... WOW !!!!

I have just finished looking at a book from the library entitled "Beneath the Cold Seas" by David Hall --- it is photographs of the underwater wilderness of the Pacific Northwest.... it is wonderful the exotic creatures that are out there in the deep and suprisingly the colours...   His lighting is amazing as is his composition... 

www.seaphotos.com   -- is the website.... enjoy 

Cheers.. MCB

Photo Shoot Plans

April 26, 2012

I have agreed to try my hand at coordinating some Photo Shoots in the near future. Our first Target” shoot is at the Raptor Center in Duncan. Curt has made an on-site visit and given them my name for contact but before I proceed any further I really need to know which of our members might be interested in this kind of activity.  In addition I will then need to know when the interested parties would prefer to attend – Weekdays or Weekends. I have asked around a little…

August minutes

Pierre introduced the new team who will help shape the Club in the future.

Simon Henson

Larry Citra

Maggie Vancik

Roger Brooks

Maureen Milburn

Ellen Vesterdal

Justene Tedder

Plus returning executive members:

Pat Page

Kahsia Hartwell

Wendy Rosier

Anna McColm

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.
