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 submitted photos are in line with the monthly assignment, and you perform some form of post-processing on your photos in that particular month.

Special thank you to Ron Pierce and other members of the executive for putting these challenges together.

Have a safe summer and we hope to be able to meet again in September.

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.

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
