Parkland Photography Club September 2003

Greenwater - Wednesday, October 8, 2003 - by: Gerald Crawford

September 23rd, 2003: There were fifteen members at the September meeting of Parkland Photography Club, including new member Albert Orban. A warm welcome to you, Albert!

Darlene went through correspondence, and a review of the various PRPA competitions we can enter.

The Tisdale Arts Group have asked us to participate with them in a show of our work at the Tisdale Mall in November. Alan and Harry are looking into methods of displaying our work.

The Club's point system had been reviewed by a committee of three, who brought their recommendations to this meeting. Basically, the system was simplified by awarding points mainly for participation in club and PRPA activities, instead of activities outside the club. The new system was approved unanimously.

There were thirteen photos entered in our monthly "Theme Shoot". Wes Swan won first with his photo of a window in an old shack; Alan Caithcart took second with his photo of a church spire, titled "Spiritual Beacon;" tied for second was Darlene McCullough's photo of a school bell in a cupola on an old school building. Runners-up were Dorothy Wark's photo of porch steps, titled "Stepping Through Summer", and Jerry Crawford's photo of a church spire. Great participation, guys!

This year, we want to put more emphasis on people photography than we have in the past. It was suggested that members bring any questions they may have to our October meeting; from them, we can build a framework for a mini-seminar. Bring cameras, questions, and samples of portrait work you have done.

Since Malcolm (Fairlight Studio) is on the road a lot, it was suggested that we find new accommodations for our meetings. The most promising suggestion was the Kin Hall, just north across the street from Saan Store. Also, instead of having our meetings on the last Tuesday of the month, we will have it on the fourth Tuesday (which will usually be the same thing!)

For PRPA's Attanyi Print Competition, our members submitted 12 prints and we judged them on a scale of 1 to 10 points. Chosen to be sent in to the competition were prints from Doreen, Jenny, Darlene, and Dorothy.

It is time to start building another Club Slide Show for showing this winter. Members are asked to bring up to 20 slides each to the October meeting. If all goes well, we can view the slide show at our November meeting.

Next meeting: Tuesday, October 28th, 7 PM at the Kin Hall unless we notify you differently.
