2016 Dec. 7: Competition – Decay

Our next competition will be this Wednesday, December 7, 2016. Due to Christmas holiday we will have all three contests (e.g., digital, color prints, and monochrome prints). You may enter three in each.

The theme this month is Decay. Decay can be defined as to decline from a sound or prosperous condition, to fall into ruin, or to decline in health, strength, or vigor. Your challenge is to create images that document or convey the sense of decay. Click here to find examples of images of decay here.

Competition rules, which include how to prepare your print entries are also posted on our website http://arundelcameraclub.org/rules-summary/

  • Mono and Color Prints– Prints must be matted. The print and mat assembly may not exceed 20”in size on the longest edge. The contestant’s name, picture title, category, class, and contest date (month/year) must appear on the back of each print.  PLEASE include an arrow on the back of the image to reflect orientation.
  • Digital
    • Email your digital entries in by Tuesday, at noon. Remember that the email address to send your digital entries to is contests@arundelcameraclub.org.
    • Send your images as email attachments. Mac users need to put their images in a zip file and attach the zip file to the email.
    • Resize your images to 1024 pixels on the long side (1024 x ??? or ??? x 1024).
    • Files should be named according to the following convention:
      • A class identifier, ‘n’ for novice or ‘u’ for unlimited, should prepend the file name and be followed by an underscore.
      • The image name should appear next. For multi-word titles, it is helpful to either capitalize the first letter of each word or separate each word with an underscore. Although most mechanisms of uploading/transferring/emailing files handle spaces in titles, this is not universal. If you have problems sending files with space-separated titles, try the methods mentioned above instead.
      • An underscore and the owner’s first and last initials should follow the title.
      • Finally, make sure the file extension (.jpg) exists.
      • Examples: Here are file name samples using the above convention:
        • u_BridgeOnTheRiverKwai_cb.jpg
        • u_bridge_on_the_river_kwai_cb.jpg
        • n_thistitleisveryhardtoread_cb.jpg
        • n_some have trouble with this_cb.jpg
    • We will send you an email to confirm we have received your images and that they are named and sized appropriately. If you do not receive a confirmation, please contact the contest chairman at contests@arundelcameraclub.org.
    • If all else fails, you may bring your images to the meeting on a USB drive, but we may not be able to put them into the contest.

2016 Oct. 19: Competition *scapes

Our next competition will be this Wednesday, October 19, 2016. Due to holiday school closing, we will have all three contests (e.g., digital, color prints, and monochrome prints) tonight. You may enter three each.

The theme this month is *Scapes (e.g., landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes).

Photographs of land, water, groups of buildings, clouds or a combination of these. The image should not be a close up. An image of a single tree or flower is not a landscape but a photograph of a forest or field of flowers is. A landscape photograph may include people, man-made objects, and wildlife but these should complement the scene and not be the primary subject of the photograph. Also includes cityscapes and seascapes. Click here for examples of LandscapesCityscapes, and Seascapes.

2016 Oct. 12: School Closed – Fells Point Photo Walk

ACC Members,

Sunset is around 6:36 pm these days and ideal twilight is 6:53 pm So 6:30 pm would be a good time to meet. If you come later, no problem you can catch up to the rest of us.

Parking cost seems to be $9 for three hours.

http://baltimoreparking.com/parking-lot/caroline-street-garage-parking

FYI: On Weekends you can park there for about $5 all Day.

Note there are two garages on Caroline St. one further South i.e. closer to Fells point is more expensive and it not the one described here.

You will come to cheaper one (i.e. listed here) first if you head south on Caroline St.

2016 Oct. 23: Photo Opportunity – Renaissance Festival – Day of Wrong

Fellow camera club members,

As many of you know I have been working at the Ren Fest this fall and I heard about something that I thought you might be interested in. Apparently the very last day of Ren Fest, which this year is Oct 23rd, is also known as the Day of Wrong. As if the Ren Fest wasn’t already a fabulous place to people watch, on  the Day of Wrong all bets are off. From what my coworkers have told me you’ll see all manner of silliness – from men dressed as women in elaborate ball gowns, to Star Wars Storm Troopers, to Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman, the Joker, Furries and Plushies, and all manner of other ridiculousness alongside people dressed in traditional Ren Fair outfits. We do have a humor contest later on this year, I’m thinking a photo of a Storm Trooper having beers with a Furry would be pretty funny.

Chris
