S4C Report-August 2014

S4C News

I have not been notified of any changes to the competition rules as of this date. We do know there will be changes coming soon.

PSA Council Challenge (S4C) participated

The Southern California Council of Camera Clubs (S4C) entered the Photographic Society of America’s (PSA) Council Challenge again in 2014.  Joanne Stolte, FPSA, MPSA, is the S4C Council Rep and chose the entries for this year’s competition.

The Council Challenge was judged this year by the St. Louis Camera Club.

Sue Liberto won an Honorable Mention with her image “Tall Ships” in the Color Digital Section.

Other LPA member’s images entered were the following:
“California Poppy 9801”                  Nan Carder, EPSA
“Sail Away”                                        Holly Peskin

In the Monochrome Digital Section, LPA member images entered were the following:
“Oldest House in Owens Valley”      Pat Ware
“Tiger 7341”                                     Nan Carder, EPSA

S4C was third in the Color Digital Section. Images are selected from the S4C competitions held yearly.

Congratulations to EVERYONE!

For those entering in the AV Fair, if you have winners and for those that feel they have excellent images, please send me your images with your UEN so I can begin the process of entering the LPA in the Inter-club competitions. If you have any questions about S4C, or wish to send my images, please email Bonnie Matthews at S4C@lpaphotography.org.

Bonnie J. Matthews

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.
