No Meeting on the 4th Tuesday of November

Please note that we will not be having a meeting on the 4th Tuesday of this month so members can enjoy their Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends. 

Our next scheduled meeting will be Honors Night December 8, 2015.

Digital Submissions

Largely as a result of feedback from responses to our membership survey taken earlier this year, there will be a new photo category available to members on the upcoming Honors Night - "Digital".  The implementation of this category has taken quite a few months, during which time the necessary equipment was procured and tested. The rules and procedures have been finalized, and now, at last, we are ready to go with Digital submissions for September's Honors Night.
It is my hope that having a Digital submissions option on Honors Night will increase participation by allowing members who don't have printers or access to printers to submit photos when they couldn't easily do so before. I feel that the more of our photos we share among the club membership, the more we all benefit.
I have attached the Rules for Digital submissions in a PDF format, and Doug will be posting them in an article on the website soon.  Feel free to contact me with any questions you have about Digital submissions or any other club topic, and I'll be glad to help!
Best regards, and happy shooting!

Honors Night Assignments and Open Entries for 2015

 Bay Area Photo Club

2015 Assignments and Open Entries 

Here is the list of Honors Night assignments for 2015.  As always assignment images must be shot during the 3 months preceding the Honors Night monthly meeting that they are listed for.

February          Out of Context

March             Winter

April                Environmental Portrait

May                 Performance

Also remember that in 2015 we will be scoring the Open entries as well and awarding a prize at the end of the year.  

As we announced in our meeting in August, we are looking to expand our pool of judges next year.  There are no specific qualifications except that you would need to go through a process of learning the judging criteria and Honors Night protocols.  Following that you will want to sit in on 1 or 2 sessions judging off the record.  Once you are comfortable, you can join the action.  

Let me know if you are interested in judging.  We need the help.




Color Scheme Designer

There was some discussion at our December 5 meeting about the upcoming assignment “complementary colors” for January. Steve Schuenke mentioned a web-based tool called Color Scheme Designer, an interactive color wheel. Below is the link to the web site along with a tutorial on complementary colors where it is used on Phlearn.
