S4C Report - August 2013


S4C News

Even though S4C is on break until Oct, keep those pictures coming in to me. LPA did real good last year and I’d like to see us start the 2013-2014 year with a lot of fresh, new images to be considered for Interclub competitions. For S4C Interclub and to participate as an Individual, you MUST have a UEN to enter. If you do not have one, please go to the S4C website and request yours today (just takes about 5 min)! The first competition is October 13th with the entry opening Sept 15th and closing Oct 4th.

Judging just finished for the AV Fair and on August16th the fair opens…BUT for those who entered in the AV Fair, our members entered a lot of very nice images and did a very nice job at the fair. If everyone who entered in the fair would send me 2 or 3 images, I would have a nice pool of images to last a few months to choose from. When sending an image, please send me your UEN. If you have any questions about S4C or wish to send me images, please email me at bonniejmatthews@hotmail.com.


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.
