It's our members' turn to shine!
While many folks are welcoming the end of a trying year, PPC is planning on taking a look at the positive things we experienced this year. December’s meeting will feature a retrospective look at our transition from public meetings to Zoom, the expanding of our Shoot Outs from physical to virtual, the speakers who inspired us, members who made a difference, photographers who were featured as our Photographer of the Month, and how some of us found new ways to develop our photography without leaving the safe haven of our homes. We’ll also spend time sharing pictures from the past or current year and why they are meaningful to us. And although we won’t be able to share those Christmas goodies in person, we’re encouraging everyone to have a cup of their favorite holiday beverage and a plate of holiday goodies by the computer when the meeting starts.
HOW TO SHARE YOUR PHOTOS AT DECEMBER'S MEETING:
This year as we celebrate the Holiday Season on Zoom, we'd like you to submit one-to-three of your favorite pictures (past or present) to share with your fellow Pocono Photo Club members in a group picture showing during our annual holiday meeting. This is a great way to get to know your fellow members and for them to get to know you!
What kind of pictures should you submit? Here are some possibilities...
- Pictures that show your evolution as a photographer
- A personal or family event that that stands out in your life
- Pictures that, for whatever reason, hold special meaning to you in your life
- Pictures that tell a unique or interesting story
- Pictures that have a funny or interesting story about how they came to be
- A photo that turned out completely different from what you intended - for the better
- One of those photos that occurred when the stars were aligned to result in a one-in-a-million result
- Pictures that taught you something about technique - after you took them
- Or, pictures that you just like and keep coming back to
There are two ways to submit your special pictures:
You may send them as email attachments to Bob Hare at firstname.lastname@example.org
Drop them off at a private Dropbox site (no Dropbox membership required): 2020 Favorite Pictures
Remember, your images do not have to have been taken in 2020 - they just have to be your favorites now. And they can be your favorites for your personal reasons - any reasons. As with all of our activities, please avoid pictures with political or other controversial topics.
Image Sizes: Please submit your images in a .jpg or .png format with the longest edge at least 2000 pixels so that they will look their best on Zoom. If your pride and joy is smaller than that size, submit the largest image you have. The total image file size should not exceed 10 megabytes, and will be downsized if it exceeds that.
Filename: Please create a filename that includes your name and "2020 Favorites" and a number to sequence the pictures in the order that you desire.
Example: "Sam Shutter-2020 Favorites-1" the final number will determine the order of presentation for your images. Spaces in the filename are fine.
Last Submission Date: Please submit your images no later than Sunday, December 13th. Due to workloads, images submitted after that date may not be included in the event. Earlier is better than later.
