The main toopic of this presentation is to explain the rules involved in a Nature Photography Competition such as the George Glennie Competition sponsored by the Merrimack Valley Camera Club.  We will address questions such as define "nature photo", editing, image size, number of images per member and so on.  We hope to have examples of the top entries from last year to use as examples.

This should be entertaining as well as informative in the process of entering a competition of national / world wide scale.

We will meet at Viles Arboretum 153 Hospital Street, Augusta from 7Pm till 9PM. As always the door open at 6:30 for a half hour informal chat before the meeting starts.

Due to the predicted waether conditions the Jan 8th meeting at the Renaissance Gallery in Farmingdale has been rescheduled to Jan 29th.  More later

119 1902The December 18th meeting is is a very casual affair. Nembers will bring in some "finger food" for munching.  A couple of videos for entertainment. Also we will set aside some time for members to bring in their prints for discussion.  As always we are open to the public so join us.

We have survived another hectic holiday season of crowded stores and arranging schedules to be together with family and friends. Now we settle back to the quiet inconvenient routine of winter. Well it is Maine you have to expect the cold and snow.

 The meeting schedule for January has a slight twist so be aware. The first meeting in January is not January 1st. We will meet January 8th at Renaissance Gallery in Farmingdale for a program on mounting and framing your prints. For those who do not know where Renaissance Gallery is the address is on Main Ave Farmingdale next to Dunkin Donuts. (If you have a folding chair please bring it.)

December 4th we will try again to present “the world in Black And White”. With our members bringing in images either digital or print to demonstrate their vision of the world in B&W. There may be demonstrations on how the color to B&W conversions were made. This should be an interesting and learning presentation .

 

The CACC members photography exhibit is now open to the public at the Maine General Hospital.  It is displayed along one wall in the cafeteria area (down stairs from the main entrance).  There are a very wide variety of topics in the images presented.  Certainly a "must see" event.  The exhibition will be on display through the month of December.
