Our first meeting on September 9th was an excellent presentation of compositional factors which rely on the phenomenon of perspective. We plan to make a video of that presentation available shortly. Stay tuned.
We also held a members-only Shoot-Out on Saturday, September 12th, involving locations in area parks. Because of the problems related to gathering members at a single site, these event are available to anyone shooting from a location of their choice. Following the shoot-out, members submitted copies of their favorite images for viewing and constructive comments by members.
Because we have so many new members, each month we will feature one of our members to help all of us to get to know each other.
A Bit of History
Our club traces its roots to the late 1800's, but with the onset of WW I, the group suspended activities. They later were resumed in 1937, and then incorporated shortly thereafter. A famous early member was Willard Seiberling, son of F. A. Seiberling, founder of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber company. He would host wonderful photo outings at Stan Hywet Hall, his family home.
After holding our meetings for several decades in Cuyahoga Falls, we had relocated to the Judith A. Resnik Community Learning Center in Akron. We were encouraged by the results of recent efforts to expand our membership in this new location. Unfortunately, Covid-19 has forced the suspension of in-person meetings.
Over time, we have evolved from film to the digital era, and are mostly active in projected media, with an occasional local display of prints at public locations. Our most recent exhibit was at the Western Reserve Hospital in 2019.
