S4C Report - October 19

S4C News

The first S4C Competition was October 13th and LPA Interclub did very well.

In the A Level:  Sharna Lee received an Award for her “Here’s Looking At You” and Wayne Staley received an Award for his “Red and White Dahlia.”

In the AA Level: William Sutton received an HM for his “The Visitor” and David Wilkins received an Award for his “King Penguins OnThe Beach.”

The second competition will open on Oct 20th and close on Nov 3rd. The judging will take place on Nov 10 in Riverside. If you would like to enter in the Individual and don’t know where to start….call me and I will help you. We are looking for good images to submit this competition year for both A and AA levels. Make sure you don’t plan on using the images for S4C Individual competition or haven’t done so in the past competitions. If you have used the images in PSA competitions, there are no problems.

by Bonnie J Matthews-Franke

Bonnie has been taking pictures since she was a little girl, but she didn�t get into digital photography until about four years ago, just before she joined the club.

Matthews finds the club to be very beneficial to her. “The interaction with other members, being able to ask questions, the workshops and the knowledge that I take away from the club is phenomenal.”

She is very active, attending most of the workshops and field trips. She has missed only a few workshops the last few years and has attended about 70% of the field trips. The fall color trip is one she�s really looking forward to.

When asked what kind of photography she prefers, she said landscapes. She just finished a vacation trip to Oregon where she photographed lighthouses, old barns and covered bridges. “I really like old structures,” she said. She now loves portraits and has her own studio.

Matthews has a Canon 5D MKII and a variety of lenses and accessories. Her favorite lens is a 28-135mm ,70-200mm. & 100mm.

Matthews is our new secretary of the club and has made many changes – to help us grow. One improvement she hopes to make, however, is to archive the meeting notes she takes so new members can have access to them online.

“I�m really proud that the club is growing like it is, and that the workshops are so great.
