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 firstname.lastname@example.org
no later than the end of the day 4 August.
As always the images are to be sized to no more than 1400 pixels wide and no more than 1050 pixels tall.

Recap of June 9 Meeting
We viewed member slide show on "American Pasttimes." We also heard critiques of our monthly competition submissions, which was under the theme "Fences and Walls." Our program was a very informative video on tips to improve photos with post processing techniques in Lightroom and Photoshop.

The selections and comments are made by a judge from another Photographic Society of America (PSA) chapter. There are two divisions: Div A is for the more experienced members and Div B is for our newer members. Placing first in Division A was Mogens Hermansen for "Modern Viewing Platform." Second place was awarded to John Farr for "It's My Beach" and third went to Michelle Tinger for Dune Fences. In Division B, first place was awarded to Jeff Hanke for "Come Lost Souls."
