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 email@example.com 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.
“On the Mat” by Eagle Peak Middle School seventh-grader A.J. Bass won the Grand Prize in the Jostens Yearbook 2020 Photo Contest. Three other Eagle Peak students were also honored for their photographs: Beyanah Boek, Davin Friedland, and Dakota Hill. Read about it here and see the photographs here. Congratulations to these talented young photographers!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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
“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.
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).
