2 new members, Carol and Elizabeth, were welcomed and introduced to the group.

Bob Rogers mentioned that at next months meeting we will discuss whether to proceed with the $15 monthly fee for renting a projector and screen or whether the club should buy a screen. Doug and Judy will look into the sources used by the school and the Film Festival....possibly cheaper.

There was no speaker for this meeting.

There was some further discussion on backing up our images, including the fact that if you're using Lightroom or Aperture you can transfer your images to other media as you work on them.

Bill Gardam proposed that Black and White be our theme for next month and gave a short presentation.Colour can be overwhelming and a distraction and it's a good exercise to learn to ignore it. B&W can make you more aware of other aspects in the image, such as shape, texture and tonal differences.

Greg Klassen talked briefly about his upcoming workshop this weekend. His course is less about the camera per se and more about perception.There are three basic theories of perception. Greg had looked through the clubs photos and saw that each photographer shoots inside one of these three categories. To find out what they are you have to attend his workshop!

Then we sat back and enjoyed the show.

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.
