November Meeting in Retrospect
At Sunday's meeting we were treated to a cross country whirlwind trip that displayed Canada's wildlife at it's finest. Kyle Blaney showed us images captured on his 20,000km camping trip this past Spring which started close to home – in Belleville - and ended up in Vancouver via the Northwest Territories. Rare birds and encounters with confused bears and angry otters were but a part of his very enjoyable presentation. Kyle also discussed his role as outreach coordinator for the Shad enrichment program for gifted teens prior to their entry to our universities and encouraged more local representation in this program.
We also reviewed the results of our Sept 24th LightPainting workshop that was held on the Belleville waterfront and led by Glen Dobson.
Three slideshows completed the evening's events, including a Glimpse of the Island and People of Cuba (by James Archbold & Kathryn MacDonald), our Ameliasburgh outing slideshow and the monthly theme A Splash of Colour show. The images from the later two slideshows have been uploaded to our Facebook page for your viewing pleasure.
The meeting was well attended and we had great member participation in submitting material for the meeting with 32 individuals sharing their work for our collective review. Thanks to all who participated.
The theme challenge for November is Rule of Thirds & Variants (images due at the end of November). The theme for December will be Member's Choice - to be shown at our January meeting. These Choice images can be from your portfolio of past images on any subject of your choosing.
Our outing for November will be held on lucky Friday November 13th. It will be a night shoot of the lighting of the festive lights in downtown Napanee. There will be a large street party with musicians and the like – lots to shoot.
Next meeting (Sunday, Dec 6th) is our annual CFC Awards Night & Gala with gormet pot-luck dining and great comeraderie.
Thanks again and happy shooting!
