Visitors happily welcomed!

Next Meeting:

April 12, 2018 at 7 p.m.

Main Program:

Nicole Boughton - Life in a Land of Attachment and Ambition

Speaker

At our April 12 meeting, Nicole Boughton will present photos from her dual careers of being both behind the camera as a photographer and in front of the camera as an actress in Los Angles during the mid-1990s.

Nicole views her photos as a creative integration of her life and her craft, saying:

My photos show my refined “honest” portraiture style, capturing my experience of Hollywood from a young struggling creative’s point-of-view, in a fine art photojournalistic fashion.  Photography for me is a teaching tool for relationship expansion.  It’s about getting in touch with the inner emotional truth with my subject and me.  I call it a 15 minute marriage where the subject and I can experience a unique connection, maximize it with style and tailor it for marketing goals.”
 
Join us to learn more about how Nicole brings her unique vision to shooting portraits.

We are always looking for programs to present at our monthly meeting. If you have a topic related to photography that you’d like to present, please contact Rob Muller.

Show and Tell

Every meeting showcases a Main Program and a
Field Trip Show featuring photos taken by our members at a recent outing. "Show and Tell" follows, where each member may bring up to 3 images on the subject of our Monthly Challenge (your interpretation!) or any subject, whether to ask for some ideas on how to make them better or just to show us what you've been up to.

Submissions For "Field Trip Shows" & "Show and Tell"

Digital images (JPGs only) must be submitted on a CD or Flash Drive clearly marked with your name. Images must be in the sRGB color space and sized to at least 1024x768 pixels and no larger than 1800 pixels on the longest side of the image. Use your name as the first part of the file name. An example of naming your image files would be as follows: if your name is Mary Smith, then you would name your files: marysmith1.jpg, marysmith2.jpg, etc. For more assistance, see our tutorial on How to Prepare Digital Images for Projection.

People attending a Club field trip may submit up to 15 images to the field trip coordinator at the next meeting after the trip (unless a different number is specifically requested). Show and Tell images should be provided to the Equipment Chair at least 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the General Meeting in which they'll be shown.

Each month, a SLOCC member volunteers to put the Field Trip show together and also selects an image from the show to be awarded "Image of the Month." The Field Trip Show is presented one month after the images are turned in. It will be 10-15 minutes in length and every submitter will be included. The winning "Image of the Month" is featured on the Club Website (hint: look in the top left corner!).

Volunteer to put a Field Trip Show together! It's fun, and other Club members will help you.
