Our next online Sackville Photography Club meeting is this Wednesday, March 3rd.
Meteorologists mark spring as arriving March 1st, however the vernal equinox (astronomical spring) arrives Saturday, March 20th at 6:37am Atlantic time. We can only hope spring weather is just over two weeks away! Covid cases are on the rise again here in HRM impacting many photographers, both hobbyists and professionals. As spring settles in and our current “circuit breaker” takes hold with vaccines being administered to the general public starting with the elderly, lets keep the faith that late spring and early summer may see the return of the “Atlantic bubble”.
We have a very full meeting planned and are pleased to be hosting Patricia Bourque, as our Guest Speaker with her presentation “My Two Worlds”. Patricia, a Mi’kmaw First Nation member of Lennox Island First Nation, PEI is a multi genre photographer. Her culture and heritage shine through in her body of work, and, in respect of diversity and inclusion, her story is an important one to see and hear.
Hugh Chisholm has the February Showcase “Macro” ready and we will introduce the March theme “Intentional Camera Movement” (ICM). As a added bonus, we have Craig Brown from Burlington, Ontario zooming in to give us a Tech Talk on “Intentional Camera Movement”. Ian Proctor will provide an update on Field Trips, Kevin Hall will update the Mentoring program, Chris Wheeler will give us a quick intro to our Annual Photo Contest and Chris Briand will take us through Club Business.
Monthly Theme images for the March Showcase: “Intentional Camera Movement” (ICM) will be due Saturday, April 3rd to firstname.lastname@example.org .
We look forward to you joining us online this Wednesday, March 3rd at 7pm from the comfort of your home. You don’t want to miss this!!!! The Zoom meeting invite will be posted as an EVENT in the Members Facebook group.
