Amazing Presentation by the Keoughs!

Last night we were treated to the amazing works and life story of Pat and Rosemarie Keough! 

Pat and Rosemarie are a vibrant outgoing couple whose love for photography, wilderness and adventure brought them together. They are wonderfully entertaining speakers who managed to compress 30 odd years into two insightful hours.

They taught themselves the craft of photography (yes, there is hope for the rest of us), starting with a natural eye and an instinct for a good shot and have…

Message From Greg

To All,
This will be my last official communication to the photo club.
Due to irreconcilable differences between myself and club president, Curt Firestone, I have no option but to leave the club effective immediately.
I wish you all the best,
Greg Klassen

Wikipedia defines Negative Space

Negative space, in art, is the space around and between the subject(s) of an image. Negative space may be most evident when the space around a subject, and not the subject itself, forms an interesting or artistically relevant shape, and such space is occasionally used to artistic effect as the "real" subject of an image. The use of negative space is a key element of artistic composition. The …

Vacation photo project

Zoe Grindea, an Israeli Photographer facing school holidays, engaged her children in a project to create one photo a day that will express that day's experience. The children took to it enthusiastically, devising props and contributing ideas.  

The project can be seen it two parts. The text is in Hebrew that may look weird on your screen; just ignore it and scroll down to see the photos.

Part 1: …

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.
