S4C Board Report-November 2014

S4C News

The first & second S4C Competition will be held on November 15th in Riverside along with a Delegates meeting and Board meeting. Since there were too few entries in Oct to allow for a viable Interclub competition, those entries were carried over to November’s competition.

I’d like to thank the following members who sent me their images to be used for Interclub competition. Level A: Douglass Wade (Milky_Way), Ron Yagi (Bird of Paradise), Matt Mahowald (Piute Morning), Rock Myers (Yosemite Falls), Sharna Lee (Jethawks 5), Wayne Staley (Sisters _1095), Darren Cole (Daisy) and S. Airov-Bieling (Baby Jake colored). Level AA: Dwight Franke (Sadie), Dale Ware ( Beauty Wasting Away), Sue Craft (Resurection_Bay_Alaska), Holly Peskin ( Horseshoe Bend), Arliss Dawson (Pronghorn), William sutton (Sail Boat), Kurtiss Humphreys (Edwards Desert) and Don Bennett (Bee In Crocus). The results will be announced at the General meeting November 18th.

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)! 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.

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.
