With our current season winding down, we are busy planning for our new 2021/22 season. This includes identifying interesting and challenging topics for our monthly challenges, as well as searching for speakers who are willing to give presentations to our members at our monthly meetings.
With the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, planning for our new season is proving to be challenging. It is too soon to know if we will have in-person meetings starting this September or whether we will need to continue with virtual meetings.
However, we thought that members would like to have a “sneak peek” at the topics for our monthly challenges for the new season. For those photographers who like to get a jump start on their photography, the following is the list of topics.
The monthly meeting will be held online on May 7th at 9:15 a.m. using Google Meet. For information on how to use Google Meet for our meetings go here. A link to the meeting will be posted on our website the morning of May 6th.
Our June meeting is our Member’s Day and it is dedicated to you, our members. For this meeting we will have Ask a Question and be presenting Member Slideshows. We are all looking forward to seeing your photographs and videos, and to your continued active participation in the activities of our club.
Ask a Question
We are going to attempt something a little different for part of our June meeting. It’s your turn to “Ask a Question”. Perhaps you have a question such as “What is an f/stop and why should I care?”, “What is dodge and burn and how to I use it?”, “How do I photograph the milky way?”, “Where is the best place to photograph orchids?”, “How can I help make our club even better?”
Ramin Izadpanah will be giving an inspiring presentation entitled “Confessions of a Photographer”, chronicling his personal journey as a photographer.
Ramin is a well known, accomplished photographer, having spent many years perfecting his personal style in several photographic genres. His accomplishments include local and national publications, Canadian Geographic Awards, judging photographic submission for the City of Ottawa Art Gallery, as well as judging for local photography clubs.
Do you think you could be a featured presenter at one of our camera club meetings? Do you know anyone who might like to volunteer to present at one of our meetings?
At this time every year, the Executive of the Kanata Seniors’ Centre Camera Club looks for presenters for Member Meetings for the following year. It gets more difficult each year to find speakers who wish to volunteer their time to speak to our camera club. As we try to put together a series of interesting and educational club meetings, we are always on the lookout for new materials and presenters.
If you know of someone, or if you would do a presentation yourself, please forward an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with details.
The Spring Photo Challenge this year is Spring: a Time of New Beginnings. To participate in this challenge you need to take 4-6 photos plus a title slide, or select photos from your photo collections, on a specific theme related to the topic that interests you or perhaps challenges your photographic skills.
The deadline for this challenge is noon, Friday, April 23rd, 2021. Update: Deadline extended to noon, Friday, May 14, 2021.
