NECCC Spring Pandemic Photo Showcase

 

Get your cameras out!

 Upload your photos from April 5-21, then choose your favorite in each category from April 22-30. Fan favorites will be announced on May 4. 

All individual members of any of the New England Camera Club Council (NECCC) camera clubs are invited to participate in a fun and free Pandemic Inspired Photo Showcase! This event is designed so everyone can participate from their own homes. There are five categories and only one photo may be entered in each. You can enter photos in as many categories as you like, from just one to all five, however, you can’t enter the same photo in more than one category. All photos must have been taken in 2021.

 

Categories

  • Pandemic Partners
  • In the Safety Zone 
  • Mealtime
  • Games
  • My Life in Black and White

 

This is your chance to get creative! A category’s “meaning” is open to your interpretation! Let’s have some fun with this! Everyone who participates and enters at least one photo will then be eligible to select their top favorite in each category. The one catch is you can’t choose your own entry.

 

Even though this showcase is focused on individual participants, the NECCC camera club with the greatest percentage of members participating will be recognized. Encourage your fellow members to submit their photos too!

 

Find more details and the complete timeline at https://photo.NECCC.org

 

It will be fun to see what everyone comes up with!

March 8 -- How to create dozens of colorful, abstract works of art from a single photograph by Phil Atiyeh


PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:  Explore your artistic side by creating dozens of colorful, abstract images from a single photograph.  The presentation will take you step-by-step through the process where a select array of Photoshop tools are used to create a large, colorful master file – or tapestry – where images are ultimately extracted.


 

 

 

BIO: Phil joined the NHCC four years ago after seeing how much his wife, Colleen, enjoyed photography and being part of the club. His past life in helping companies develop and launch new products has offered a natural path into photography where similar technical and aesthetic elements must work together.

"Creative Choices for Close-Up Photography – Backgrounds and Lighting" by Dennis Goulet April 5th Via Zoom

 

Part of a more comprehensive program on close-up tools and techniques, this program explores techniques to manage how the background is captured to ensure that the subject is the most important element in the image. Seeing and eliminating distracting elements, taking advantage of local conditions, and even using studio techniques to completely control the environment behind the subject.

Many of our best subjects are either in too much light, or too little light, to capture the image we envision. Techniques for controlling the light we have and adding light will be discussed along with remedies for harsh lighting, and using LED lights and off camera flash to put light where we need it, or to solve motion blurring due to long exposures.

Dennis Goulet's Bio 

A member of Photographic Society of Rhode Island, Dennis Goulet concentrates his photographic endeavors on nature and landscape subjects. He is a past president and past chairman of the board of New England Camera Club Council (NECCC) and currently a vice president. He gives presentations on photographic technique at camera clubs, has presented seven times at NECCC annual photography conference, and was the General Chairman of the NECCC 2013 and 2014 annual photography conferences.

Dennis’ images have appeared in several magazines including Audubon, Nature’s Best Photography, Wild Bird, Birder’s World, Rhode Island Monthly, Outdoor Photographer and Sierra, as well as on the websites of Audubon and National Wildlife Magazine. His image of a Green-breasted Mango was selected Grand Prize Winner of Audubon magazine’s 2010 Birds-In-Focus photography contest.

"Lensball Photography" by Marie Altenburg March 8th via Zoom

  Using a crystal ball is not just for fairy tale princesses.  Many photographers use such a device to capture an inverted version of a scene that's in the background.  But in this presentation, you’ll learn how to create unique graphic designs that will almost pop off the page.  And they can be created indoors in your home or office.




    Marie Altenburg’s Bio, in her own words:

When I left classroom teaching, my career did not end. Photography, which I have always enjoyed, has now become a major part of my life. Photography is a wonderful way to continue teaching while expressing my artistic side using all the new tools available to photographers. Not only do I create photographic art but I also teach and give presentations on the techniques I use. I have given these presentations in various locales around the country - on both the eastern and western coasts of the United States and from the north to the south. I look forward to each one and to the photographers I meet – either in person or virtually. Camera clubs, photographic conventions, and other organizations of interest to photographers are always welcome to contact me for this purpose. I enjoy meeting people and sharing my photographic techniques. I also judge camera club competitions and offer positive critiques to help others improve their photography. I am considered a master photographer although that term seems daunting because I am always learning new techniques and expanding my photographic vision.

I have volunteered my services in various venues, including a summer camp for children experiencing the devastation of cancer.

My photographs have received awards in salons and galleries throughout the country, have appeared in magazines, and have been sold in museum gift shops.

NHCC Member Needs Help With Exposures.

 


NHCC Member Needs Help!!!

 

A member needs help with exposure.  Read about her concerns below.  If you can help, let Jan know and she will connect you. jmdteach@comcast.net

 

“I have a Nikon D3500, some pictures I can tell looking at them in camera that they are too dark or too light, but others look good in camera but then when I put them on the computer, they are too dark or too light.”

 

“Is there someone in the club who can help me figure this out?”
