    • We have borrowed an idea from DPS (Digital Photography School)
    • “Singular, non plural. ‘Shoe’
    • When given a very simple object, can we stop and think about a way to photograph that object with some extra interest, some interesting lighting, a very random perspective? Photograph a shoe in a way that it’s not been photographed before?
    • “Shoe” It’s likely most of us have one or two (or a load more!) but how will we photograph it? (Just one, not the pair)”
    • Bring to the meeting on a USB drive

Bryan Peterson - Understanding Contrast: Going Beyond Light and Shadow
  • Friday, November 18. 2022, 7-9 PM PT (Zoom opens: 6:30)
    This event moderated by: Harbour City Photography Club
  • Are you having trouble ‘seeing’?  Do you often find yourself heading out the door with the intention of capturing some really compelling image only to come back empty-handed? What is the most common problem EVERY photographer faces in everyday composition? Bryan Peterson is convinced that inside your camera bag a virtual gold mine of compelling compositions awaits, once you fully embrace the unique vision of each of your lenses and begin to apply ALL that exists in the world of contrast! As you will discover, ANY subject can be turned into a compelling shot, no matter how mundane.
Speaker and topic to be confirmed
  • Friday, January 13, 2023, 7-9 PM PT (Zoom opens: 6:30)
    This event moderated by: Comox Valley Photographic Society

Dianne Bos - Alternative Photography Techniques
  • Friday, February 24, 2023, 7-9 PM PT (Zoom opens: 6:30)
  • This event moderated by: Victoria Camera Club
  • Dianne Bos has been exhibiting her photo based work for over 40 years. She has evolved various thematic bodies of work, and merged technical innovations to create new visual hybrids: her innovative uses of pinhole, film, camera obscura, photogram, installation, and cyanotype all explore the world around us. Dianne says, “The excitement, for me, lies not in photographing and reproducing something I can see, but in revealing the imperceptible (and maybe only the imagined) using the physics of light and time and traditional darkroom techniques.”
Craig Blacklock - Light Waves
  • Friday, April 14, 2023, 7-9 PM PT (Zoom opens: 6:30)
    This event moderated by: SaltSpring Island Photography Club
  • Most photographers have one recognizable style they apply to varied subjects throughout their lives. Conversely, Craig Blacklock, has devoted his life’s work to depicting the interface of land and water in wilderness areas, specifically, Lake Superior, where he is constantly exploring new ways to express our relationship with the natural world. For his latest project, Light Waves, Blacklock travelled by kayak gathering images that unlock a portal into an astonishing universe where light dances with water,  creating the illusion of three-dimensional objects and spaces.
After Registration
  • Once an individual has registered, they will automatically receive a Zoom meeting connection to each presentation they have registered for. A week before each presentation and the day before a presentation, a reminder email, with Zoom meeting connection, will be sent to each registrant.
Cheers, TCPC Executive Committee
