Extra Event – Special Set Subject Event
Sep 2 @ 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM

The July-August Monthly Special Subject
is:
“Summertime and the Living is Easy”
Show & Tell Evening is Scheduled for
Monday 2nd September 2024

The next monthly special subject will run over July and August
The subject is
“Summertime and the Living is Easy”
Upload images to the website by 3pm on 2nd September.
Upload your images here:
https://www.bonaccordcameraclub.co.uk/special-set-subject-july-august-2024/At the moment we are still running the show & tell meetings on Zoom.
Join here:
MEETING ID. 878 6355 2284
PASS CODE;  325044
LINK: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87863552284?pwd=taLI89ZbNMaoCTHRiOCKEIZ8BmlvTn.1

The meeting room should open at 6:30pm so there is time to test your connection and maybe have a chat before we start at 7:00pm

Photos should have to be taken within one month of the project evening.
In order to take part you need to submit up to 6 images to the online meeting.
Upload them to the website as described below or share them at the meeting.

The maximum number of images per member is SIX but less than six is OK!
All images should have been taken in the current month!
(The idea being to get folk to go take pictures with their interpretation of the theme in mind rather than just looking through their back catalogue).

Upload your images on the club website where the drop-down menu now has an item for “Special Set Subjects”
Here is a shortcut:
https://www.bonaccordcameraclub.co.uk/special-set-subject/
Please load up your images before 15:00 on the day so I there is time to sort them out for displaying….
Some members would like to show their own images by screen-sharing on the meeting night rather than upload them to the website.
That’s OK. Just have your images loaded and ready for display so you don’t keep others waiting!

This is not a competition, it’s an informal “show and tell” project, but it may help you improve and  build up some competition material.
Be prepared to give a brief description of your interpretation of the subject and a give a bit of information about how you image was captured, adjusted, etc.
Get constructive comments from other members.
The idea is to go out (or stay in!) and take new pictures.
So photos should have to be taken within one month of the project evening.

Only a few rules but here they are:
A random subject is chosen.
You take some photos based on your interpretation of the subject.
Upload at least one (max 6) images to the current Special Subject web gallery page.
Then join in on the Zoom project evening and show what you have done, how you did it give comments and get feedback.
Digital images should be JPEG format (Max 1600px wide, 1200px high, sRGB) as for club competition projection.

For upload you will need a user name and password.
If you haven’t already got one then you need to register.
https://www.bonaccordcameraclub.co.uk/register/
To do that you will need a six-figure PIN Code – 270420
Your user name should be firstname(dot)surname in small letters.

If you have any suggestions to help improve the online experience please let us know.
Join in and  meet up!
Enjoy!
