News and Information
Our next meeting is on June 20, 2019, and will feature a special guest all the way from Miami. Maria Alejandra Cardona will join us to talk about taking photos from the heart: how to shoot emotion and tell stories with your images. Her work has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, REUTERS, Chicago Sun-Times, the Associated Press, and more. Check out her work on her website, and invite your friends to this meeting. You won’t want to miss it!! Join us at 7:00 PM at Glynn Visual Arts, 106 Island Drive, Saint Simons Island, Georgia.
Thanks to everyone who came out to our May meeting! Bob Kelterborn talked to us about post processing: how to edit photos in Adobe Raw Converter (all the toys of Lightroom but with a white background!) and Photoshop.
Our homework assignment for the month: "Before and After." Using tips from Bob’s presentation, submit two photos (a before and after) to show us your editing techniques. Find more information about the assignment and how to submit your photos here.
EXHIBITS: More details are now available about the Big Photo Show, the Best of the Best, and a new opportunity for 2019: a special exhibit at a gallery in historic Brunswick, “The Big Photo Show Too!” Open to CPG members only, these are three great opportunities to share your work with the public and see it displayed somewhere other than a computer screen. Get the scoop on the details here. And now you can pay your entry fee online!
The Great Book of Faces. Have you joined our Facebook group yet? Our weekly challenges have been a blast! From doors to shoes to the color red, come see what other photographers are sharing. We’ve also updated our rules to make it a little more accessible to people who might be interested in the Guild but don’t yet know what we’re all about. If you have any local photographer friends who might be interested, invite them to join the group! We want to keep it local (Golden Isles residents or frequent visitors), but we also want people to be able to get to know us before they’re ready to make the leap to come to a meeting or become a guild member.
