Dates to Shoot for!
The Oshawa Camera Club, 2014-2015 season is off to a great start. I would like to welcome our new and returning club members.
2014-2015 Club Executive
I am thrilled to be the incoming president of the club for the next two years. It was only six years ago that I was the newbie, knowing very little about DSLR cameras and photography. I could not have imagined, as I was being introduced as that new member, that I would be president in such a short length of time. Our club is volunteer based, so giving back, in any way, is what we do.
Our four regular competitions will, once again, include a ‘Special’ category, which will be chosen from the Annual Club Competition (ACC) categories. Bill Peel has put together a very interesting program for the season, which will include a live judging, member presentations, several guest speakers and workshops.
I would like to encourage all members to submit photographs for the competitions. Getting feedback from judges, is an incredible way to improve your photographic skills. You may not always agree with the judge’s comments, but if you use them constructively, your images will improve exponentially. Submit as many pictures (five maximum for each of the first four competitions and eighteen for the Annual Club Competition) as you feel comfortable. To start, submit in categories that you are familiar capturing. Pictures submitted for the ACC competition, are included in the year end salon. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a minimum of one photograph from each member in the show? It is a great way to show off your accomplishments to family and friends when they attend the salon with you.
Bharat Mistry and his technology committee, are busy improving our club website to make it secure and allow for easy access to club information and activity enrolment.
The year will conclude with two events; our annual Club Salon and Club Banquet. Have a great year and if you have any questions, please contact myself or a member of the executive.
There have been some changes made with the addition of the “Members Only” page. Returning Members and New Members will be informed by email with login info once the membership has been finalized. There will be a briefing on the new features and procedures at the first meeting.
Emails have been sent to all members with user ids and login info. Please check your inbox (and also your junk folder just incase you don’t see it). If you still don’t have it, contact Bharat Mistry.
