  3. Theme
    Be Your Self(ie): Creative Self PortraitsSubmissions due Jun 18, 2017

    This theme is all about you. You can be featured as clearly as you want in the photo or you can be hidden. You must appear in there somewhere, but you don't need to be recognizable. Photos can be manipulated in software or not.

    To get a few ideas on how to approach this theme, check out this link and view some of the samples: https://photography.tutsplus.com/articles/100-seriously-cool-self-portraits-and-tips-to-shoot-your-own--photo-5689.

    If you prefer to be anonymous, feel free to leave your face out of the photo.

    Experiment and have fun with this one!

  4. Outing

    We will start the day by shooting pictures at Shannon Falls and continue to the adjacent Stawamus Chief. We can stay and shoot pictures in the area for 1-1.5 hours and then move to Downtown Squamish to grab a snack or lunch and then continue shooting pictures of the Squamish Docks and surrounding areas.


    Details:

    Shannon Falls in Squamish, BC is located 58 kilometers from Vancouver. The park covers an area of 210 acres, and is the third highest waterfall in BC, where the water falls from a height of 335 metres. The falls are named after William Shannon who first settled the property in 1889 and made bricks in the area. The falls and adjoining woods are commonly used in television and film production.


    Logistics:

    Located 83 kms north of New Westminster, travel along Columbia Street, Brunette Street and enter Highway #1 going North. Follow the highway and merge onto Highway #99 when in West Vancouver, and continue on Highway #99 until you arrive at the falls. They will be on your right.

    Transit Users: Sorry, but there aren’t any convenient transit options to get out to this venue. This is where arrangements should be made amongst the photo club members to carpool out to the venue. My car fills up fast, so please don’t wait until the last minute to find transportation. Please talk it up at upcoming club meetings. This is a great opportunity to meet up with other club members.

    RSVP to outings@nwphoto.org so I know how many people are attending. Please be aware that carpooling arrangements should be made ahead of time. We should be on the road by no later than 8:30am as it takes a little over an hour to get to the falls, find parking, and assemble by the concession stand/info booth by 10am.

  5. Outing

    The opening reception for our exhibit at The Gallery at Queen's Park is on Wednesday, JULY 5th from 6:00 to 8:00 PM.

    As well, club members will be staffing the gallery on weekends throughout the month. We'll "focus" on this in lieu of a separate July outing.

  6. Outing
    We will be shooting images at the Powell Street Festival around Oppenheimer Park.

    Details:

This year's extravaganza includes a new interpretive installation entitled "Macro Maki", a special presentation on Japan's Third gender, a panel with two of Haruki Murakami's top translators, and a performance by the dynamic duo George and Noriko - a Japanese blues cowboy and Tsugaru samisen player from Melbourne, Australia.
    Logistics:
