New Club outing just added to the calendar

Those who know me would agree that I write long emails – especially if you read them on your phone.  My incoming email comes to my workstation and I read it on a large monitor, and that is how I picture someone who gets an email from me.  My apology to the majority of you who read email on your phone. Communicating ideas, plans and objectives is what i do for a living, and it just takes more words to add proper context to get my job done. 

Photography is one place where words can be left to a bare minimum, if any words are needed at all.  Those who study communication scientifically observe that the vast majority of communication is non verbal (70-93% is what the current studies suggest), which is one major reason the Club is trying to do as much as possible in person. If you want to really connect with fellow Club members, meeting face to face at an outing is one of the best ways to get that done.  My goal for the Club is that members will begin to invite Club friends to join them, and the Club can serve as support.  It might be just the introduction to your next friend, or maybe the club can publicize the details of a great place to take photos.  The formal Outings program is where we start, and the brief details appear below, with the full details listed on our website accessed through the Calendar listing.  Do consider joining us when you can- even if a location doesn’t excite you at first- getting together with friends will be worth the trip.

The Tidewater Camera Club is proud to announce yet another upcoming outing for the purpose of some education, photography, and camaraderie.

This guided outing by David Blecman will take place on Saturday morning, July 29th, at 8 am at Centreville Wharf Park. 

There is a parking lot at the location.

When David did a brief scouting of the area, he saw a blue heron, osprey, eagle, and a small toddler. Yes, there is wildlife there, not to mention some great waterscapes.

David recommends bringing a circular polarizing filter as well as a wide and telephoto lens (or an “all-in-one”).

We also request that everyone meets in the parking lot at 8 am please, even if you arrived early and started wandering around. Meeting and getting to know one another is an important aspect of these outings. Feel free to stay as long or as short as you’d like.

If for any reason the weather is questionable, this event on the Tidewater Camera Club Calendar will be Clearly Updated and Marked CANCELLED no later than 6:30 am. Otherwise, it’s a go!
