DPC Photo Night is Wednesday, October 13, 2021

Fall is definitely here with the cooling temperatures and the falling leaves. So many photo opportunities!

If the cooler temperatures and the changing foliage doesn’t attract you outdoors what better time is there to peruse all the photographs you’ve taken. Now that the sunshine and fun summer activities aren’t distracting you, you may have time to find some great images you’d like to share. There is the perfect opportunity coming up next week to do just that, with DPC’s Photo Night.

This month’s themes are varied, with the first one building on our first workshop of the year, which was all about Portraits. But, I’d like to challenge you further and suggest self-portraits too. Google self portraits online and you’ll find some fascinating and inventive photographs. Get imaginative!

We have three additional topics for you to think about as well. The first came to mind when I thought of the changes Fall brings after summer and a bridging of two different seasons….it could also be in recognition of many students and staff commuting again now that schools and workplaces are open. The topic is all about Bridges and whatever that means to you. The next is Buildings. We’ve spent a lot of time in them over the past while. The last topic reflects the change in seasons and the rain that brings to the lower mainland. It’s Wherever the Rain Goes (or WTRG)  If there is an image that doesn’t fit into the above categories, submit it under Open. Time permitting, we’ll show those as well.

Challenge categories are: Portraits, Bridges, Buildings, Wherever the Rain Goes (WTRG) and Open

Note: Each member can submit up to 2 images for each of the challenge categories

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 (summer or fall) isn’t shown this photo night, but will become a project/image you will share of all 4 images next spring.

Members can also send short slideshows or videos.

Zoom meeting details are included in the week’s email: Virtual DPC Photo Night, October 13
