There were 20 participants for may's zoom Club meeting.

The deadline for submitting photos to this year's Eclectic Visions virtual show has come and gone! It was May 15th but I'm sure there's still time to beg an entry if the dates slipped your mind.

On May 25th the Victoria Camera Club has organized a talk on macro photography with Don Komarechka. Kahsia highly recommends him and, since Macro is our next month's challenge, it is a pertinent subject to look in to. You…

I just wanted to tell you how blown away I was (as was Maureen) by your contest submission image. Absolutely stunning. Well done. -- Sam

Hi Anna. The racoons were certainly there and checked out anything that was left out but we used the food locker and that seemed to do it. It is a really nice campsite isn't it? - but I wouldn't want to go in the summer when it is full of motorboats and sailboats. From the number of buoys, looks like there could be quite a crowd.

Hi Anna, Are you here on Jan 2nd?  We are going to Bowen and wondered if you could take my two photos to Artspring for hanging.  Please let me know.  And hope you have a great Christmas!

Hi Anna. I actually got the whole NIK package on line. Please note that this is a plugin. You need to have Aperture or Photoshop or Lightroom - best check this. I am not sure whether Silver FX can be bought separately from the others. The whole package is $149 however - not too bad. And some of the other plugins are useful also - the one on noise reduction is very good.

Hope that helps. Let me know if you are at the next meeting.

Thanks Anna, I better put some pix on this site soon! See you tomorrow, Bernadette

Hi Anna,
The stretch of beach was just north of where Nininat River (?) from Nininat Lake empties into the Pacific. Must be quite a hike in to this....I was in a helicopter, so distance is probably further than I think.

Lovely photo Anna--one of the best I've seen of you.

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.
