We’re Now Meeting on ZOOM!

Due to COVID-19,  in-person meetings of the Olympia Camera Club are canceled until further notice.  We are now scheduling virtual OCC meetings and will be releasing meeting information as it becomes available.  Watch this space.

HOLIDAY SECRET SANTA – CLICK HERE

Tuesday, November 24, 7:00 p.m. – General Meeting – This month our meeting will be a critique and help session. We all have both images we have finished and are happy with and would like be to critiqued and others we know could be better if we could figure out what to do with them. So if possible come prepared with two images you are finished with and one problem child to present to the club. I would like to do this using screen sharing, so have them cued up in your editor on screen in the backround. This will enable you to have access to all the metedata, allow you to make changes in real time and we can all practice screen sharing.

Tuesday, December 8, 7:00 p.m. – Practical Photography – Program TBA

Tuesday, December 15, 7:00 p.m. – Member Sharing – Topic TBA

 

All meetings are at 7:00 p.m. using

Virtual Field Trips

No field trips are scheduled at this time due to COVID-19.  Instead we will conduct a series of virtual field trips in the monthly newsletter and with Field Trip Galleries.

-Gratitude-
A Holiday Reflection in the Time of Covid

This is a more personal thematic virtual Field trip. What are you thankful for this holiday month? Take a moment to reflect on the last year, and share with us a photograph, or up to five photographs of what you are grateful for this year. You may already have photos from this year, but if you haven’t taken many photos, this is an opportunity for you to look back and pause, and photograph what you are thankful for this holiday.

The pandemic has changed all of our lives. Yet, we are still here, we are still a club, and I bet there are many things that you can photograph to express your gratitude. Maybe a snapshot of a family Zoom meeting. Maybe you were able to visit something or someone this year. Maybe you are just thankful that the holiday did arrive, despite the pandemic. Some things never change. Photograph it and share with fellow OCC members.

GUIDELINES for IMAGES:
Images are due by December  3, 2020.  Members may contribute up to 5 images per person to the newsletter for each virtual field trip, but you may also upload up to 10 of your images to the club’s website gallery by logging into the website and choosing ‘ADD IMAGES TO GALLERIES’ from the Member’s Only Area.

Please size your images to 2048 pixels on the long side and reduce the file size to 2MB or less. Put a watermark on the image and title each image. Example for the title: Milky Way over Mt Rainier_Pam Hoaglund. Please send the images as an attachment to an email to [email protected]

The purpose of the Olympia Camera Club is to learn how to be better photographers through sharing, teaching, guest speakers, and field trips.

Our club includes photographers of different skill levels and with varied interests.  You will enjoy the camaraderie of interacting with those at your own skill level or with similar interests.  You’ll also have opportunities to grow and learn from club members who have more advanced skills.

We have three regular meetings each month to meet varied interests and skill levels.  Members are also invited to attend monthly field trips and other club events.  Take a look at our Calendar to see what’s coming up in the near future.

MONTHLY MEETINGS

You are invited to attend any and all of our meetings.  See the calendar for details.

The Olympia Camera Club is a member of the Northwest Council of Camera Clubs (NWCCC) and the Photographic Society of America (PSA).
