Change to agenda for the November meeting

Posted on October 21, 2017 at 10:12pm 3 Comments

I've just learned that next month's speaker will be Seth Berkowitz instead of Pierre, who has kindly stepped aside until February. Seth will talk about portraiture and an idea that has come up involving both Photosynthesis and the club.

Photography Exhibition

Posted on June 5, 2017 at 11:55am 1 Comment

An exhibition of images from South America, by Stasia Garraway is opening at the Salty Pear Gallery this week, Friday June 9th 5 to 10 PM. The gallery is at 270 Rainbow Road (across from the Rainbow road pool). Stasia is a lovely young woman  whom I met recently. An excellent photographer, this will be her first show and will be well worthwhile taking in. The show runs until September 30th.

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.
