Hillcrest Camera Club - First Meeting of 2013 - Tues 22 Jan 2013

Posted by Hillcrest Camera Club on Monday, January 21, 2013 Under: Meetings

Hi everyone

Welcome back to an exciting 2013! We have some challenging Set Subjects and Outings ahead of us and we are going to continue our Beginner's Outing to help all of the newcomers to the club. We can't wait to get started!

1. Photo Sharing

Your Holiday Photos - We hope that everyone had a brilliant festive season with lots of time to make great photos. Show us what you have been doing photographically, i.e. travel, projects, etc, over the holiday break and submit your best photos to share with everyone else. For this month only we will allow three photos to be submitted for this category.

You can also submit in the Open and Troubleshooting categories, but only one photo per category.


Please submit your photos by email to:
hillcrestcameraclub@gmail.com, or bring 8x10 prints.
Email submission closes 8pm on Monday, 21 January 2013.
You can submit photos for either/or Holiday or Open categories. 
Size - Maximum of 1024 x 768 pixels, and not more than 600KB per photo. Please do not exceed this limit!!!!
Format - Jpeg or Tiff
Labelling - the file name of each photo must follow this format: Category - Your Name & Surname - Title of Photo e.g. Outing - John Swannell - Sir Roy Strong: An Elizabethan Reverie.
Please make the subject line of the email "January photo submissions". This will make it easier for Andre to identify the emails and ensure that your photos will be added.
Please note: If your photo is incorrectly labelled, or named, and there is no subject line for the email, or it is sent after the deadline it will not be shown.

If you miss the deadline for emailing, you can submit photos at the meeting on a virus free memory stick. However, please be considerate and come early. Out of consideration to those who have submitted timely, we will no longer be accepting submissions after 7PM, once the meeting begins.

If you pay in cash - as a cash deposit, or at the club, please add on R20 for bank charges. Every cash deposit attracts fees of R20, which the club paid in the past. However, we cannot continue to bear that cost. Please rather make EFT payments as these do not attract high bank charges.

4. Exhibition Opening at artSPACE - Phoneography 2

From the artSPACE notice:

“Phoneography 2” – a group exhibition of smartphone camera images


Taking pictures with a smartphone (or a cellphone that has a camera) has become so popular, it even has its own name: iPhoneography, or smartphoneography for those who do not own an Apple mobile phone. Users have been taking a lot of cool pix on their phones and now would like others to see them besides on Instagram and other sites and have a chance to sell them in a gallery environment.
We coined the term "phoneography" to open the field up to all cellphone with cameras (aka Androids) users.
The blocks are either 12x12cm or 12x24cm this year. And there will be a prize for the most voted for piece on show of R500.

See you on Tuesday, 22 January at 7pm!
