Member Photo Review - Wednesday, Jan 11 at 7:00 pm via ZOOM

Member Photo Review - Wednesday, Mar 22 at 7:00 pm via ZOOM

 

This your opportunity to share some of the photos you have been taking recently and see what your fellow photographers have been up to.  Some of you may have traveled lately or been inspired to get out there and take some winter photos. This is an open category so any subject is acceptable.  Photos taken within the last year are preferable. 

 

As a member, you may submit up to six [6] of your photos to be seen and reviewed by other members who will offer their appreciation, helpful hints or comments for your efforts. Feel free to submit them even if you are not completely satisfied with them since you may receive ideas of how they could be improved and made better!  A review by your fellow club members tends to help both you and them.  

 

We will view each photo (as time permits) and give members an opportunity to comment and offer suggestions or ways to improve the image through post processing, changes to camera settings or perspective.  Even if we don’t have time to view every photo submitted, everyone will be given equal time for review of their photos. Be assured, only constructive criticism will be offered.  It is up to the photographer to identify himself and allow for questions.  

 

Email your photos to memberreview@akroncameraclub.org by Tuesday, January 10, 2023 at 11:59 pm.  Please include a title and your initials at the beginning of the file name in the following format:  ‘photoname iii.jpg’ photoname can be up to a 15 digits and ‘iii’ is your initials.  For example: ‘bird on a tree DEL.jpg’.

Jan Bell:  Presentation - Wednesday, February 22 at 7:00 pm via Zoom

Over the past two decades, photographer Jan Bell has traveled thousands of miles to capture luminous visions of nature. He’s sojourned with his camera in the Pacific Northwest, American Southwest, and the shores of Lake Superior bringing home images that he massages using Photoshop to bring out emotionally resonant undertones, creating visual meditations on water, rock, and desert plants.
His work has evolved over the years as he’s concentrated more on nature. Bell now shoots exclusively in black and white. While attending a workshop at Yosemite National Park where he was immersed in the work of Ansel Adams, his appreciation of the power of black and white photography took hold.
“We all see in color on a daily basis,” Bell said. “Black and white takes you out of that real world and transcends more into the fine art world.”  Also, he said, “composition is incredibly important to me. There’s no man-made element in any of my photographs. I tend to go tightly in a scene and only capture what I want you to see.”

Jon Theobald:  Presentation - Wednesday, February 22 at 7:00 pm, in person

 

Jon Theobald will present his love of Street Photography. His candid and unstaged photos, which are taken both locally and internationally, are not meant to capture the traditionally beautiful subjects most photographers shoot for. Instead, he attempts to capture life in our contemporary world and the human condition in pictures that are not always pretty or technically perfect. Jon will explore what Street Photography is...and is not, what makes a street photo more than just a snapshot, what equipment to use, techniques at capturing these moments and the variety of types of images that Street Photography can capture. Is street photography legal or ethical? Where are the best places to go for street photography? And what can you do, or not do, in post-production? This presentation will try to answer these questions and more.

 

Our first virtual meeting, June 23!

The loss of one opportunity has led to the creation of a new process for us to share in one of the favorite activities of our club, namely participating and observing the process of competition and critiquing of our images, a vital learning process for our members!

This June 23rd we had a Zoom meeting, where our judge for the event was able to discuss each image submitted, give a constructive critique so that all of us could learn, and then provide a score for each image.  As a result, even while we were staying home, we could still all see and hear the comments of our judge who provided his expertise for this event!  Attendance was relatively low, but most folks felt that the process was very productive, and they were glad to have participated in it!
