Charles Needle Zoom Presentation
Mindful Photography: Seeing in a Different Light
Mark your calendar for July 20th at 7:00 p.m.
Award-winning Colorado-based fine art photographer, Charles Needle, will teach you how to approach any subject with fresh eyes and learn to see on a much deeper level in this webinar presentation, exclusively for SLCC and MoNEP members. Drawing upon inspiring quotations and images from other photographers who have most profoundly influenced his work, as well as his own personal "Zen moments" in the field, Charles will share ways in which you can engage your mind, eye and heart so they are all in perfect synchronization, making you a better photographer and more in tune with your subject. Note: Please “bring” one uneaten raisin to this online presentation, if you would like to participate in an optional experiential exercise during this session.
2020-2021 CLUB YEAR
The Board of Directors met via ZOOM on June 29th to discuss presentations and competitions for 2020-2021. The following is a summary of the various points dealt with:
The Ethical Society will be closed until at least the end of 2020 and, if and when they open, their social distancing requirements will only allow a maximum of 25 people in our regular meeting room.
For the foreseeable future, there will be no in-person events for the club.
All programs/presentations will be held over platforms such as ZOOM.
For all sections except prints, competitions will be conducted as usual under existing rules.
Results of competitions and comments by judges will be held over platforms such as ZOOM.
For prints, the board discussed how to accommodate holding competitions. Some tentative conclusions were reached, but will need to be refined.
Details of all the above will have to be worked out by the Competition Manager, Print section heads, Projection Team, and Technology Team.
The board is sensitive to members who are not familiar with sharing platforms such as ZOOM and will provide “mentors” to help those who want/need assistance.
Image of the Year Results - 2019-2020
The Image of the Year Competition results have been announced. View the summary page, or browse the gallery here (look up and to the right) that is scrolling on the home page.
The Open Digital, Nature, Photo Travel and Photojournalism sections were judged and as usual four images were chosen in each: one first place and three HM’s. Since the Color Print and Monochrome competitions were cancelled, it was decided that all images that qualified for image of the Year consideration would be included in next years competition. Because of this, there was no overall Image of the Year chosen.
In lieu of the Annual Awards Ceremony, a PDF of the Powerpoint that would have been used at the ceremony is available here.
