Macro/Close-Up Competition – May 18, 2021 - 6:00 p.m.

On May 18th, at 6:00 p.m., Lancaster Photography is hosting a Macro/Close-up competition for its members. It is the last competition before the End of the Year competition.

The deadline for entries is May 11th. Click here to enter.

All members can enter. The entry fee is only $5.00 and you may enter up to three images. If you came to our recent Macro/Close-up workshop, you definitely have images you can enter!

DEFINITION OF MACRO/CLOSE-UP: Photographs of small subjects or close up views of sections of large subjects. Think of this Class as “close up” to the subject. A photo of a faraway galaxy appears closer using a telescope, but it’s not a close-up image. A close-up on a face is good, but maybe better is a close up of an eye. This class is expecting some level of magnification.

Our judge is Robin Stern. Caught by the “photography bug” she joined two photography clubs in the Southern California Association of Camera Clubs: Photonaturalists and Poly Photo, and became active in both clubs and in SCACC. She is currently the SCACC Interclub Chair and secretary of Poly Photo Club.

Her first year entering the San Diego County Fair, she won two 4th Place Ribbons and went on from there to win first place ribbons in 2015 and 2016. In 2016, she also won Best of Show. In 2016., she won Interclub Image of the Year from SCACC and received an Honorable Mention for the same image in PSA Council Challenge last year.

Hello to everyone! LPA’s Board of Directors has discussed our response to California’s ongoing Stay At Home orders. We have suspended all face-to-face activities, which includes our meetings twice a month. Board meetings and webinars are being held by Zoom. We will have occasional field trips as the quarantine guidelines allow. We will let you know as soon as we are ready to resume regular meetings when it is safe and the Senior Center reopens

If you have any ideas for our on-line Zoom meetings, please feel free to contact our president, Kathy Newman at We would love your ideas! We would also love ideas on how to keep our members engaged and active in photography despite the tough situation we find ourselves in. We encourage you to upload a Member Gallery to our website under Galleries->Member Galleries. We have been having occasional FB challenges in our Facebook group to encourage you to continue your photography at home. We invite you to check that out at

Thanks so much for your patience and understanding!

Kathy Newman
LPA President
