Shoot-Outs Are Continuing Throughout The Year!

Club members gatherings are continuing through out the year at various locations to capture creative images.  The gatherings have been followed by on-line Zoom meetings for members to share some of their photographs.  We provide constructive ideas for approaching their subjects in various ways and also for diverse ways of editing their images.  See below for some of the images created at the locations we have visited so far.

Our first ever virtual meeting, June 23, 2020!

    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!  On June 23rd, 2020 in the early stages of the Covid Pandemic, we had a Zoom meeting where a 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!  Members felt that the process was very productive, and they were glad to have participated in it!  Top scoring images from our recent Zoom Critque meeting are displayed below:

Our first "Shoot-Out" of 2019

Several members of the club visited the Metroparaks Cascade Overlook trail in North Akron.  This 1-mile easy trek leads to a remarkable view of the Cuyahoga River near the historic Signal Tree, with a view high above the river. Members also used every opportunity to look for those little extra things along the way that make for interesting photos!

Holiday Party 2019

Our annual holiday party turned out to ba a most enjoyable, social event!  A fantastic selection of hearty snacks and desert treats greeted eveyone, and several members also brought materials and equipment to explore table-top and macro photography.  One fascinating process was focus stackiing, in which several images are acquired at slightly different focus settings, then merged in-camera to produce an image with great depth of field over the subject.  Other set-ups allowed exploration of various lighting equipment and backdrops
