Happy New Year everyone! May 2021 bring you and your loved ones health and happiness.

We started the year bringing a wonderful speaker to our online meetings. Liron Gertsman had some important planning information and was an inspiration with his photography. Two categories this month will echo the topics Liron touched on: landscape photography and astrophotography. To quote; “Landscape photography is the art of capturing pictures of nature and the outdoors in a way that brings your viewer into the scene.”

I’ve included two additional categories. The first comes from Pantone who announced its color(s) of the year for 2021: PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating (a vibrant yellow). To quote Pantone these two colours represent: “A marriage of color conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting.” These colours can be found many places in landscape and urban photography. With our recent rainy Vancouver weather, one can easily find the grey backdrop for the colour yellow.

Our other category is designed to stimulate your creativity and to reflect a past workshop topic on story telling. This category I’m calling ‘body parts’. What I’m thinking of is story telling through things like hands, feet, eyes, paws, hooves, jaws etc. The body parts aren’t restricted to human, they can be animal or maybe even insect. The key component here is the story that is told when you see the photograph of the body part(s). To quote a famous saying: “The eyes are the window to the soul.” and hands can tell a person’s story. Get creative!

Last but not least is our ‘Open’ category where you can submit any image you’d like to discuss or get feedback on.Categories are: Landscape (Land), Astrophotography (Astro), Pantone’s Grey & Yellow (GY), Body Parts (BP) and Open.

Note: Each member can submit up to 3 images for each of the 5 categories.

Members can also send short slideshows or videos.
