Subject: CBPC Upcoming club dates until end of January 2018
Hello All Members:
Here is a run down of the next few meetings which takes us up to the end of January 2018—-
Wednesday-JANUARY 3rd 2018–——Our first club meeting of the New Year —we will be having a members night—Sheldon Boles will be doing a presentation on Light Room—-Birt Nord will have a new slide show and Brian Kilpatrick will show us the slide show from Christmas on the Peninsula. If you have an idea for a presentation, or if you have a slide show or photographs that you would like to discuss and have members give you feedback on, or anything you would like to discuss photographically, please just give me a heads up and I will try to fit everyone who wants into the evenings program. It should be a casual but informative night. We may also be showing the images submitted for the capa black and white digital competition, but only briefly, as they will be judged off site at a later date.
Wednesday January 17th 2018—-We have a guest presenter, Derek Carlin , who will walk us through creating slide shows—-he calls it “Create better slideshows with digital storytelling” . This is the way Derek describes his evening—-
The presentation goes over some key elements I have found common to “good” slideshows (the ones where you’re not falling asleep by the end) based on 20+ years now of trying to become a better storyteller — and also gives a condensed talk about the importance of consistent workflow which lets you focus on content rather than fighting the tools (people often complain they struggle with ProShow itself, and that most of the time building a show is trying to get ProShow to do what they want). I demonstrate how my workflow allows me to quickly assemble a show (which I screen at the end). Along the way I have 2 or 3 short shows I run that demonstrate some of the elements discussed — so there’s some “entertainment” mixed in with the dull talking part. 🙂
This sounds like an informative evening and I am looking forward to it!!!!!!
Wednesday January 31st 2018—-We will be judging digital entries for the North Shore Challenge, we will have two judges who will discuss and score images—-this is an “open theme” competition which takes place every year at the North Shore Photo Club and our Thomas Dethlefson will be giving you more information about submission dates to him etc. We will also be judging print entries for Capa’s Pacific Zone Print Challenge, held in Coquitlam every year.
****Please note that the two competitions above are open for anyone to attend and there is usually quite a crowd.
The Pacific Zone Print Challenge will take place on Saturday, 17 February 2018 in the Gymnasium of Eagle Ridge Bible Fellowship, 1160 Lansdowne Drive, Coquitlam BC. V3B 5V8
• Judging will start promptly at 12:30 PM. Members of all clubs and the public are welcome.
The North Shore Photo Challenge takes place on Saturday March 17th 2018 at 7pm at The Kay Meek Centre for the Performing Arts—1700 Mathers Avenue, West Vancouver BC—tickets will be available from Thomas at our club (or he will let us know where or who)——
See you this Wednesday December 13th—-Lynne Kelman/President CBPC
