Monthly Challenge for June

PaTtErNs Trees by Thomas Illing

The Camera Club will not be meeting in the month of June, however, members can still submit pictures for the June Monthly Challenge – Patterns – The primary aim of pattern photography is repetition.  The repetition of lines, shapes, colours, or values can result in unique photographs. Try capturing images where pattern is the main subject of the image or where pattern is used to enhance the main subject.

COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS AND PHOTOGRAPHY

Because of the current and potentially on-going restrictions surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, it may be difficult for KSCCC members to take photographs within our usual six-month assignment timeline. In those cases where you are unable take photos in public spaces, you may submit previously taken photos. The only requirements are that your photos are in line with the monthly assignment, and you perform some form of post-processing on your photos during the month of May.

Your images for the June Challenge must be emailed by noon on Friday, May 29th to be included in the slideshow. For details on how to submit photos, including formats and titles, go to our Pictures/How to Submit page.

Your Executive has been working hard creating a program for member meetings for FY 2020/21. A list of Monthly Assignments for next fiscal year will be posted shortly.

Don’t Visit the Tulips

Tulips by Amy Lo

During the Covid-19 Pandemic you should follow all public health directives and avoid all non-essential travel.  To reduce the spread of Covid-19 we are being encouraged to walk through parks only in our neighbourhood and are being discouraged from stopping along the way to take pictures, including tulips which will be in full bloom shortly.

Please review the following posts from CBC and NCC:

No tiptoeing through the tulips this year as festival goes online
