At our 5/17 meeting we finalized the cancellation of our September show. Because we have no upcoming expenses except for the website (around $50 in November) we decided to extend the dues year through December. The 2021 dues (amount to be determined) will be due on January 1.

Our theme this month is “movement”. Send photos to ukiahphotoclub@comcast.net for posting on the website and then I will forward them to Chris Pugh for the meeting (we still haven’t entirely figured out screen sharing so this looks like the best way to do it). Since our photo opportunities are currently limited you may need to reach back into your archives or just ignore the theme.

A reminder of our upcoming themes:

  • July – postcard (does anyone remember exactly what we meant be this?)
  • August – night
  • September – black & white
  • October – downtown Ukiah
  • November – people
  • December – best/favorite (past year and ever)

If there are other things you would like to talk about at the meeting, add them to the comments below. And there are lots of great photos on the Photographs page waiting for critiques.


UPC May 17 Zoom meeting

Sunday, May 17, 2020, 11:00 AM

Join us for our second online meeting to talk all things photography. The date means we will be straddling two themes – May’s “something out of your comfort zone” and June’s “movement”. As always, these are for you to interpret or ignore as you choose. You should continue to send your photos to ukiahphotoclub@comcast.net for posting on this website. If you are comfortable with Zoom screen sharing you can present your photos for critique during the meeting (have them ready so you don’t have to search for them), but as a backup I’ll have them also (assuming I don’t get kicked out of the meeting). We should have more clarity by this time on the advisability of going through with our September show

Ukiah High School 2020 Annual Student Photography Show – Shelter in Place

Through May 30, 2020

Kimberly Carver

“Shelter in Place”, the 11th Annual Ukiah High School Student Photography Show, is available for your viewing here or by looking through the windows of the Corner Gallery, 201 S. State St. Over 500 photographs focus on the effect the current health crisis has had on students lives.


My first camera

Here’s your chance to tell us about your first camera. Get technical. Get nostalgic. Embelish! What was it called? Give us a link to a picture of it. Do you still have it? What kind of film did it use (or how many megapixels)? How did you acquire it (gift, purchase, hand-me-down)? What did it mean to you? Is there a path between this camera and the one you shoot now (we know that Park still uses a fifty year old lens)? Or, perhaps, do you not remember or not care? I’ll start it off with my own in the comments below (hint: that’s it above).


Photography under shelter-in-place

Can’t get out for that perfect shot of Half Dome or the Golden Gate Bridge? Here are some ideas to help you maintain and even develop your photographic skills from the comfort of your home.

James Tocchino’s article, Quarantined? Here Are Five Photography Projects You Can Do From Home at CasualPhotophile, is directed at both film and digital photographers. I can see us doing a future theme of self portraits (not selfies), and, seriously, would it kill you to dust off your old film camera?

A similar article, How to Be a Productive Photographer When You’re Stuck at Home, comes from Luca Eandi at keh.com.

Want to contribute to scientific research? Check out What’s Happening to the Monarch Butterfly Population? in the New York Times. I think I saw one in my yard yesterday but by the time I grabbed my camera it was gone.

And of course, keep the photos coming in to ukiahphotoclub@comcast.net and your comments to ukiahphoto.club.
