Virtual DPC Digital Night is Wednesday, July 29, 2020

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! We’re hosting a virtual digital night in the summer! We have had such a great response from club members so why not have a summer opportunity to share what club members are photographing during this unusual time.

This month we have four categories that are all about what has been happening this Spring and Summer. The photographic categories are: Lightbox challenge-Photographing Fences; Red/White and Canada Day (shortened to RW); Explore BC (shortened to ExBC), and an Open category.

The photographic focus provided by the Lightbox Photography cards Karoline Cullen has kindly shared with us is all about photographing fences. As shown on the card, fences can be a strong composition element. On the DPC outing to Deas Island Park this past Sunday there were a number of opportunities to photograph fences. They were a great backdrop to the beautiful flowers growing in the fields.

The second theme this month is photographing Red & White and Canada Day. We just celebrated Canada Day and it’s often shown in red and white – representative of our Canadian flag. Think Canada Day but also think about red and white in your photography. We’ll enjoy the contrast between the two colours and possibly feel a sense of community with the Canada Day photos.

As we’ve been asked to either ‘stay in place’ or ‘vacation at home’, let’s share what that means to us British Columbians. The ‘Explore BC’ category is all about what we see in our province. What comes to my mind are flowers that are blooming, birds I see in the sky or animals that I see wandering about. But, that isn’t everything wonderful about our province. What about our water, forest and mountain landscapes? Anything about beautiful BC is what can be submitted for this category.

The last category is Open, to allow members to share images that may not fit into other categories.

Categories are: Fences; RW (for Red & White and Canada Day); ExBC (for Explore BC) and Open.

Note: Each member can submit up to 5 images for each of the 4 regular categories.

Members can also send short slideshows or videos.
