October Submissions Night – “Out of Place”

Red Curtain

“Red Curtain” by Sylvana Bobowik

It was interesting to see how people worked with the concept of “Out of Place”, such as with this photo that establishes a strong pattern, broken by one element.

September 2018 Submissions Night

Welcome back to another year at photo club! Each month, we have a submissions night where members can submit photos and then everyone there votes on the best of the evening. It is always a great learning experience, with helpful discussion about what goes into creating a strong image.

January’s Submissions Night

January’s submissions night saw record numbers, with over 80 digital submissions! Maybe “Night Photography” was a popular theme, or maybe people are just getting a lot of out of the process. We heard about three club members in a sort of special spotlight on getting to know each other. We also had a brief, info-packed presentation from Jeff Wallace on astrophotography.
