Fiorina shading eyes watermark 1-1Join us for our next meeting on January 12th when SCC Vice President Renee Giffroy presents “The Power of the Personal Photographic Project”.

Renee will share her favorite images from her current project – Photographing the Presidential Candidates on the Trail in NH – as she discusses the many aspects of executing a personal photographic project. She will discuss why you should adopt a personal project and talk about the process of selecting your project and defining the objectives. She will also share tips on defining a ‘shot’ list, utilizing available resources, and selecting the final images that will most effectively tell the project story. In addition, Renee will share some of both the fun and the challenging moments she experienced over the course of the project and will highlight some of the many benefits that resulted from it.

Renee is a seacoast based photographer who enjoys photographing a wide variety of subjects. She is VP of the Seacoast Camera Club, a juried member of the New Hampshire Art Association (NHAA), a member of the Seacoast Art Association and member of the New Hampshire Society of Photographic Artists. In addition she just accepted a position on the board of the NHAA.

As always, all of our Seacoast Camera Club meetings are free and open to the public. Drop in to see what we’re all about. We meet at the Urban Forestry Center (45 Elwyn Road, Portsmouth, New Hampshire) from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

Mayflower II – Dave Thompsen

We just wrapped up our club’s print exhibition at the Portsmouth Library. Thanks to all who participated. We received some wonderful feedback on the show.

Dave Thompsen just opened his Stamp Treks exhibit, Images Inspired by Our Nation’s Postage Stamps, at the same Portsmouth Library gallery. This coincides with the presentation he will be giving at our next meeting on Tuesday Dec 8th (6-8 PM), but note that the meeting is back at our usual venue, the Urban Forestry Center. Remember to bring food and/or drinks for our pot-luck holiday dinner!

Also of note, club member Tom Lavoie is exhibiting a collection of street photography images titled Mardi Gras Through the Lens at River Stones Framing in Rochester, NH.
