President's Message

"The Earth is Art, The Photographer is only a Witness." 

Yann Arthus-Bertrand, Earth from Above

It is hard to believe we are almost to March already.  Time goes by so fast.  The quote above struck me in a different light this past week with the passing of my amazingly sweet father-in-law.  While reminiscing, we combed through old photographs looking for the perfect shots to represent the great life he led.  We are mere witnesses to time and history behind the camera.  The pictures we take today may be cherished one day as the "once-in-a-lifetime" shot of a family member, friend, or even a complete stranger...  Thank you for sharing your passion for photography with us.

See you soon.  Vallie

Larry Gray will present on panoramic photography. The presentation will look at the camera, lens, and techniques with and without a tripod. He will cover the full spectrum 360/180 degree and partial panoramics.  Finally, Larry will discuss software and presentation.

General Meeting - March 19

Photo Review

                 Monday, March 19
                             7 - 9 pm

Bring 5-7 photos from recent events or any other pictures you would like to share. If you have photos that you would like help with, bring them with you!  If there is time, our club members can give you pointers on what to do.  Be sure to use a  labeled folder with the date on a thumb drive to store the photos you want to share.  It will make it easier for our projectionist.

City Hall Gallery Entries
Due March 21 

Our theme for the next round of photos in City Hall is "Four Legged Friends." The deadline for submissions is March 21, 2018 at midnight

The Oviedo Photo Club has proudly displayed photographs in the Oviedo City Hall since 2014.  Our curator will select five new photos for City Hall. The five oldest photos in City Hall will be moved to the Annex building to replace five of the photos there. 

Submissions are handled via Dropbox.  Send an email to the club to let us know you wish to participate.  You will be provided a link to a Dropbox folder to upload your photos.  All files submitted should be suitable for printing a 16 x 20 print.  All photos will be renamed to be anonymous and submitted to our curator for the selection process.  You will receive a confirmation email after the photos are renamed and submitted so you can verify they have all been provided to the curator.  If your photograph is selected, there is a $25 printing and matting charge.  All photos will be printed by the club for a consistent appearance and returned to you in the mat after they have been displayed in City Hall and the Annex building.
