FREDERICKSBURG PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB
Minutes of May 2020 Virtual Club Meeting
The club held its May meeting via the Zoom app. Members were sent a link via e-mail that they could click on to join the meeting. All together twenty-four people participated. The meeting started at 7:00PM with remarks from our President, Judy LaFratta. Judy thanked Anne McGrath for her invaluable assistance in setting up the Zoom app and sending the link to members. The topic for the next issue of SHUTTERTALK will be “Emotion”. Submissions should be sent to Norma Woodward by May 26. Members were reminded to let the club when they have been selected to be in a show. David Boyd had two of his photographs accepted by Nature Photographer Magazine.
Our 2020 Photo Show was cancelled and May 2021 was chosen as the date for next year. With reference to our annual show for July and
August at the Fredericksburg Visitor Center, it was decided that photographs submitted will be on the theme of “Fredericksburg”, and the photographs will be up for the entire two months. Mike Fleckenstein wanted to remind members that they can showcase their images on the club website in the Club Member Gallery. Liberty Towne Arts Workshop will have a show in June entitled “Hidden Fredericksburg.”. Members were reminded about the upcoming webinar by Mollie Isaacs on Lightroom.
There was a discussion about the themes for our upcoming meetings, specifically June and July. It was decided that the theme for June would be “My Small World” with reference to what you are seeing during this quarantine. The June meeting will also be held on Zoom, on the 9th at 7:00PM. The theme for the July meeting presentation will be “Abstracts - A Different View From The World Of Norma Woodward”, looking at common things from an uncommon perspective. While the Zoom format seemed to work, feedback from members on the temporary virtual Zoom format would be appreciated.
After the discussion portion of the meeting ended, the critique portion began. There were a lot of photographs submitted, and they were organized into a PowerPoint presentation by Mike Fleckenstein and moderated by Judy. When a photograph appeared on the screen, the person who took it talked about it and then members offered feedback. Everyone agreed that all the photographs were really well done but, since there was no outside critic, this meeting ended up being more of a show and tell. Before the meeting ended, members were encouraged to look at our website to keep up with current news and upcoming events.
