As hot, humid days of August make way for hopefully cooler days of September, the Kanata Seniors’ Centre Camera Club (KSCCC) is busy getting organized for our 2021/22 season.
With the ongoing restrictions concerning the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be meeting virtually for the foreseeable future. We hope that as soon as it is safe to do so, we will reconvene our in-person meetings.
Our upcoming season promises to be interesting for all our Club members, with presentations by a range of external speakers and Club members, monthly photo challenges, special photographic topics and plenty of opportunities to share our experiences, as well as learn and practice new photographic and photo editing techniques.
Here are some details for our first meeting of the new season:
Date and Time: Friday, September 10th, 2021 at 9:15 a.m. Venue: Virtual using the Google Meet platform Presenter: Javier Frutos, Creative Director, Photographer and Photo Editor at Canadian Geographic & The Royal Canadian Geographical Society
Don’t forget to send in your photos for the KSCCC Summer Challenge “Canada, eh!”. Your submissions are due by noon, September 3rd, 2021.
Additional details of the meeting on September 10th will be sent out shortly.
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!
The monthly meeting will be held online on June 4th 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 June 3rd.
The agenda for the meeting is:
Review online meeting procedures
Slideshow of Member Images from the April assignment on Wet/Water
Overview of Monthly Challenges 2021/22
Member Slideshow Part 1
Spring Challenge Slideshow
Project Challenge on Camera Techniques – Introduction
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!!
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.
