S4C Report - November, 2012

S4C News

The second S4C Competition was held on November 10th  S4C in Riverside and the entries submitted were: A- Brent Bremer, Lee Garner, Wes Burcham, Cory Matthews and AA- Dwight Franke, Sue Craft,  Arliss Dawson, P. Dale Ware.  Dwight Franke received a HM with his image “Pass and Review.”

The third competition will open on Nov 17th and close on Dec 1st. The judging will take place on Dec 8th.  We are looking for good images to submit this competition year for both A and AA levels. December and January competitions are both going to be remote judging with no Delegate or Board meetings.

The next Delegate, Board and print competition will be February 9th. I was asked to encourage LPA members to attend the next competition as a field trip (like we have done in the past). I will try to put this together. Since there were only 4 exhibitors in the print competition this past weekend, I will try and push harder to get our members to participate in the February print competition. Since I have been offering to help our members and sent emails out to individuals with UEN’s, I have only received one request for help.

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.
