On November 5 2019 we are holding our annual National/International Travel Night. Presenters will be speaking about a specific country, province or region to which they travelled and will describe what attracted them to that specific region and/or country. We will hear about the stories behind the photos and the challenges involved in planning the trip and getting those special photos or the series of photographs.
Many people wear a lifetime of experiences on their face, yet who that person is and what they have experienced often remains a mystery. In this talk, Wayne will present a collection of portraits accompanied by individual stories of inspiration, tragedy, humanitarianism and heroism. The atmosphere and mood of his portraits are often crafted with multiple studio lights on location. He will also discuss technical aspects of his portraits and his approach to lighting.
Captis Photos is an Ottawa based photo cooperative with a wide range of interests and experience. The three photographers involved with Captis, Brendan Montgomery, Jaclyn McRae-Sadik and Connor Evans, will discuss the cooperative and present some of their photography, particularly their photojournalism work and their travel photography in some less travelled places like Chernobyl, Jordan, Peru and elsewhere.
Each year the Camera Club of Ottawa (CCO), le Club de photographie polarisé de l’Outaouais (CPPO), the Orléans Photo Club (OPC), and the RA Photo Club (RAPC) hold an Interclub AV Showcase which this year will be held on December 3, 2019, in Clark Hall at the RA Centre (2451 Riverside Drive, Ottawa). Members of all four clubs are encouraged to contribute audio-visual (AV) productions to this evening.
This year marks the 125th anniversary of the Camera Club of Ottawa. To help celebrate this significant anniversary, CCO will present two retrospective shows highlighting its history, and will host the evening.
There will also be an open bar starting at 6:30 p.m. which will be available until the conclusion of the intermission.
Two presentations will explore current trends in photographic activity. Mike Vuckovic, Ottawa Manager, VISTEK, will showcase photographic equipment developments such as new flash units, studio lighting systems, technology narrowing the gap between DSLRs and mirrorless cameras, and the increased presence of video, iPhones, medium format digital cameras, etc; & Jamie Johnson, one of the RAPC’s in-house software ‘experts’. will focus on pros and cons in developments of various processing softwares.
Every year, the Social Committee hosts a Dinner and Party on the last meeting of the calendar year. It is usually themed. In the past we have had themes such as Christmas , a Viking Yule, Santa Claus, Ancient Roman Brunalia..... We have yet to put on our thinking hats and decide on a place and theme for this year's celebration. Stay tuned!
