Member Share:

  • August's Topic: Below The Knee
  • Interpret "Below the Knee" any way you want to, but I originally thought of it this way:
    Capture people in action with one or both feet off of the ground. Put yourself in a people traffic place. A street, shopping area, or event. If possible, locate a comfortable place you can watch multiple opportunities for a good shot. Be careful to minimize distracting intrusions or backgrounds. Wait to let things unfold for you.

    "Photography is a major force in explaining man to man." Edward Steichen

    Techniques to consider:
    • Pre-focus on an interesting area where you predict action.
    • Use a normal prime lens or phone without zooming.

    Example composition: Foot about to touch down from a curb.

    What story or vision will you share?

Message from the Show Coordinator...

It's time for our 21st Annual NCPS Members' Photographic Exhibition!

Once again it will hang at the Encinitas Library, Community Room, for five weeks, September 21 - October 29, 2016.

IMPORTANT! There are a couple changes this year. First, dates have been moved up one month. That means entries are due September 1, 2016. Second, there will be only ONE take-in date, Sunday, September 18, 2016, at the library from 10 am-1 pm.

Unfortunately, as a result of the timing, I will be out of town during most of the preparation and execution of the exhibit. Nancy Jennings will be taking over all show duties when I leave late August. She will be your main contact for questions and can be reached at treasurer@nc-photo.org or by calling 760-445-9596.

The prospectus and entry form can be found in the July issue of our newsletter or your can click here Show Prospectus
Make sure to carefully read the prospectus for important dates & times, size limitations, category descriptions, and other pertinent submission guidelines.

A note for our new members ... our annual show is FREE for all members as long as your dues are current. You are allowed to enter two images in a choice of eight categories. You are guaranteed to hang. All images will be professionally judged by two photo industry professionals and awarded ribbons.

Our Artist's Reception is scheduled for Saturday, September 24th from 1-4 PM. One party you won't want to miss!

This is a learning opportunity for some who have not entered a show before and it is a great opportunity to get involved. Whether you are new to photography or a seasoned enthusiast, we encourage you to share your talent! You will be surprised at the support and knowledge our club can offer!
