We hope you’ve had a chance to get out and enjoy our spring weather and all the spring photo opportunities!
As you know, the 17th Annual Naturescapes Photography Contest and Exhibition is open for business! Entries are currently being accepted, so it’s time to start going through your favorite nature photos from the past year. Changes from last year include the new SMGA award and Barbra Riley will be the juror.
Our members-only companion exhibit to Naturescapes is receiving entries through July 15th. The subject is Curves, Circles, Spirals, or Spheres. You’re free to put whatever interpretation you want on that, but the subject of the photo has to beCurves, Circles, Spirals, or Spheres. Within this theme, be sure the image does not look like it could be a part of the Naturescapes Exhibit. In other words, no nature or landscape photos. No entry fee.
As you know, we have two Facebook Pages — Public and Members Only. Since we don’t currently meet in person, the Members Only page is the best way for our club to stay in touch, interact, and share photos, It’s an active page, and you can post your photos and ask for advice, feedback, or a critique. (If you’re a new member, you’ll need to request access to the group.) The Facebook photo theme for the month of May is “Flight”! Planes, birds, insects, kites, etc.
If you have any news or stories you’d like to have included in the newsletter, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
