Berrien Springs Camera Club Meeting
The Berrien Springs Camera Club will meet Wednesday, Feb. 5, at 7 p.m. in the Berrien Springs Public Library at Cass (Old 31) and Union. This month’s program consists of a competition of prints and digital images submitted by members. The selected topics for the month include: 1) Patterns and 2) Shadows. Three additional categories are appropriate for all of our competitions: 1) Nature (nothing domesticated, nothing of a human origin), 2) Portraits, and 3) Open (any other subject).
Photographers and other artists like to find patterns in what they observe. These might be the parallel veins of a leaf, or boats lined up neatly at a marina, or the center of a sunflower. Many options are possible, and it is fun to see what patterns others find in everyday things. Shadows also can bring out creativity—how a subject is positioned in relation to the sun, maybe a whole picture of just an elongated shadow.
Prints, at least 5" x 7" in size, should be mounted, with the title and photographer's name on the back. Instructions for submitting images in digital form are available on the club’s Website: http://photoclub.berrienspringsmi.us/
All are welcome, either to observe or to join. Anyone who wishes to join may submit photos to the competition, up to 10 projected images and/or 10 prints. Refreshments will be served.
