DPC Photo Night is Wednesday, February 16, 2022

Hello fellow photographers. It’s time to show off your images! Send them in and share what you’ve been photographing or photoshoping.

This month’s themes should provide you with an opportunity to show a variety of your work. First one is Fog. We get a fair bit of marine fog this time of year in the lower mainland, so I hope you had a chance to capture some of those great images. Our second theme is appropos for the month of February. You’ve seen lots of symbolism around our theme of Love is in the Air. Much of the symbolism is hearts and the colour red, but we challenge you to think outside the box and maybe find heart shapes or the colour red in nature or still life. Think love, passion and heartfelt emotion. Our next theme is Declutter or simplicity. What does declutter or simplicity look or feel like for you? Will others feel the same when looking at your images? Then we come to our last structured theme of photographs which is Concept; an expression of emotion, concept, story, within an image or images. This has been an ongoing theme for many of the speakers our club has had the pleasure of seeing this past year, the most recent being Guy Tal. We ask you to show us photographs that evoke a feeling, tell a story or depict a specific concept. The last category, of course, is Open for those images that don’t fit into this month’s themes. We will show these images as time permits.

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

Challenge categories are: Fog, Love us n the Air (LA), Declutter, Concept and Open.

Members can also send short slideshows or videos.

As a reminder we have a year long photography challenge where members are challenged to take an image of the same location, space, or item, in all four (4) of our seasons. The idea is that this location/space/item will change with the seasons and therefore represent all the changes that come each time our season and weather changes. This challenge was introduced last spring and will culminate in a presentation of member’s images Spring 2022. Note: the image you take this season (winter) isn’t shown this photo night, but will become a project/image you will share of all 4 images next spring.

Please check your email with subject “Virtual DPC Photo Night, February 16” to see the Zoom meeting details and for the link to upload your images to. Images should be uploaded by 12:00pm, noon on Wednesday, February 16, 2022. Videos and slideshows are best to be sent via a free program such as ‘We Transfer’, and submitted to photonight@deltaphotoclub.com

Remember, for the best display quality, images should be resized to a maximum width of 1920 pixels and a maximum height of 1080 pixels. This may not be possible with cell/tablet images so please send us the largest image possible, up to the limits indicated above.
