Next Meeting set for August 11

Eve Turek, an award-winning wildlife and landscape photographer, will be the guest speaker of the Coastal Carolina Camera Club August 11, 2022, 7pm at the Shallotte Presbyterian Church. As a mindful nature photographer, Eve listens, envisions and shares the connections she experiences, and always in gratitude by saying “thank you” after clicking the shutter. Eve’s photographic practice include emotions of serenity, connection, and elation. Eve will share how her feelings of being present, whether through
weather or light or wildlife or the land itself, complete the photo’s story.

The club has been invited to display photos at the Southwest Brunswick Co. Library this September. If you have a mounted photo ready for display, please bring it to the August meeting and give it to Carol Nowicki.

The theme for the August slide show is "Pathways".  Please send up to 5 images to me at no later than the end of the day 4 August.
