Plan Ahead! “The Southern California Council of Camera Clubs bestows honors on individuals who qualify through active participation in a wide variety of photographic and S4C-related activities. The purpose of the honors is to encourage and acknowledge service to S4C and to member clubs. Honors are on the basis of points an applicant has earned in accordance with the point schedule set in out below. Applications must be received by the Honors Committee not later than April 1, each year. It is urged that applications be submitted earlier than this if possible.” The procedures and application can be found at: http://www.s4c-photo.org/honors/honors.html (info taken from S4C website). If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

For S4C Interclub and to participate as an Individual, Everyone 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)! 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.
