The meeting comes early this month on Wednesday, February 1, 6:30 pm, and it will be a good one. Our first competition salon of the year was judged by J. Arthur Anderson, an accomplished nature and event photographer. He is often called upon to judge for local camera clubs. John will comment as the images are projected, explaining his reasoning for the scores and will include ideas for improvement. I’ve been a member of WWPC for over five years now and I always look forward to these salons. I’ve learned something new every time, whether it is specific to one of my own shots or if it concerns other images. And every time I am inspired by many of the images that are shown. Don’t forget to bring up to two prints 15 minutes before the meeting begins so they can be included in the judging.
The February meeting is also a good time to pay your 2017 dues. Here is a graphic that shows how our money was spent in 2016. The biggest piece of the pie went to speakers in our continuing effort to bring quality learning opportunities to the members.
TCACCC Interclub Competition Entry Deadline is Sunday, February 5
If you are entering prints in the Interclub Competition, (up to four color prints and 4 monochrome prints) bring those to the meeting, too. I will get them delivered to the drop off location by the entry deadline. If you haven’t already, please consider entering this contest, either prints or digital images or both. It is one of the benefits of our club belonging to the Twin Cities Area Council of Camera Clubs, and is free. Everything you need to know can be found here. Galleries of past award winners from out club is here.
One of the questions I get asked about the Interclub competition is whether they can enter the same image that was entered in N4C or our own club competitions. The only images that cannot be entered are ones that received an Interclub acceptance in prior years and the same image cannot be entered in more than one category. If you have other questions, bring them up at the meeting or complete our contact form.
N4C Award Winners
After the break we will be treated to more inspiration and information. Several of our members will tell us about their vision, and the capture and processing details that went into their award winning shots.
Just for Fun
