Saturday, May 7, 2022, 10:00 AM; in person at Medium and online at  https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89991857512?pwd=U3pDamxueVFFRysvMzJIaTJHdmN3dz09

Our theme this month is “shapes”. We will have a presentation from Sarah McPheeters, Park’s daughter, about her portrait business, which can be previewed here. We will hear about the Mendocino photoshoot and continue our discussion about the August-September show. We’ll also keep our fingers crossed that the microphone problem has been solved. Submit images in advance at ukiahphotoclub@comcast.net.


2022 Themes

JanuaryDutch angle – intentionally tilting the camera to throw off the verticles and horizontals.  It can create a sense of tension or unease.

FebruarySomething important in your life.  Family, job, hobby, politics or religion (we will all be respectful).

MarchColor.  Photos where the defining characteristic is color – limited palette, rainbow of color, complimentary or contrasting colors, etc.

AprilNature – in all its wonder.

MayShapes (works especially well in black & white).

JuneWater – waves, waterfall, dripping faucet, etc. 

JulyStreets, trails, paths.



OctoberRule of thirds.

November – This is the one that caused the most uncertainty and confusion.  Garbage.  Or ugly.  Or a contrast between ugly and beautiful.  Or maybe beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

DecemberBest/favorite, year and ever.

Bonus – To be worked in sometime during the year:  everyone photograph same scene.
