2021 Spring Photo Challenge Results

Spring stars – Bloodroot by Ann Williams

Members of the KSCCC had a successful year with the 2021 Spring Photo Challenge. This year we challenged ourselves to create a photographic project focused on “Spring: A time of New Beginnings”. Each photographer submitted a short portfolio of 4-6 images. A total of 12 photographers submitted approximately 70 photographs on topics ranging from Canada geese keeping a close watch on their newborn goslings to spring flowers and landscapes. Congratulations to all photographers!

Here’s slideshow of the photographic projects:

The galleries of all photographs are here.

iPhone Camera Apps

This article The Best iPhone Camera Apps of 2021 from the PetaPixel blog details 7 of the best photography apps in the following categories:

  • Professional iPhone Camera App
  • All-in-One iPhone Camera App
  • Free iPhone Camera App
  • iPhone Camera App for Filters
  • iPhone Photo Editing App
  • iPhone Accessory App for Stills and Video
  • iPhone Camera App for Filmmaking

Club member Anne Jones agrees that these are all useful apps but says:

I have looked up each of the apps in the App Store. It’s not a pretty picture. Almost all the reviews are poor, not because of the app itself but because of the ever increasing Subscription model. This is what I have found also. I guess this is why I go less and less to the outside apps. You are either constantly bothered with ads or features won’t work unless you PAY UP!!

Links from March 5th Meeting

In Manfred’s presentation he mentioned this paper on Evaluating the Rule of Thirds in Photographs and Paintings.

Sue Carey sent along this excerpt from Freeman Patterson’s newsletter:

I’d also like to draw your attention to www.earthisourwitness.com, produced by Parimal Deshpande and hosted by him and the internationally-renowned photographer, Art Wolfe, both from Seattle. This is a series of stimulating conversations with photographers from around the world, selected by Art and centred on some of their images. The series is a work-in-progress; you can view those already filmed and there are more to come. Don’t miss the compelling conversation with Wade Davis, the Canadian anthropologist and photographer, who was explorer-in-residence at National Geographic for several years. (My conversation on SYMBOLS and MEANING will be recorded March 2.
