Virtual DPC Photo Night

DPC Photo Night is Wednesday, April 14, 2021

Spring has finally arrived with it’s new life. Our trees are budding, flowers are blooming; and the birds are either nesting or in some cases already feeding their young. Great opportunities to photograph new life beginning.

With our upcoming Black and White competition, on April 21st we’ll have a Black and White category. This is your opportunity to share your images and get feedback if you desire or just try your hand at black and white.

The third category is Rita’s suggestion in response to our guest speaker Cole Thompson. During his presentation on April 7th he led us to his main theme of taking images with a purpose in mind. He called it his vision. On his website he shows his ‘eye versus vision‘ images. He shows the image his eye saw and then the image he had as a vision for the photograph. This month we’re asking you to submit your before image (what you saw) under the ‘eye’ category; and then submit your after image (what you envisioned) under the ‘vision’ category. Please note that the naming is important in this category so that your images are presented in sequence.As we only have four categories this month I thought to expand the Open category to allow a submission of up to 5 images.

Categories are: Black and White (BW); Before and After (Eye; Vision); Spring and Open.

Note: Each member can submit up to 3 images for each of the Black and White and Spring categories; up to 3 pairs of images in the Eye and Vision category and up to 5 images for the Open category.

Members can also send short slideshows or videos.
