Macro July 2016 Competition


Archives

The deadline to enter is July 12th at 11:59pm. Please remember, even if only entering prints you need to upload digital images of the print entries so they can be displayed for everyone to see during the judging.

Our judge is TBD. Please contact Bonnie Matthews-Franke at competition@lpaphotography.org if you have any questions.

MACRO photography is extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size. In practice, this usually means the subject is smaller than 2”x2”.


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.
