What Are Your Photo Plans for the New Year? Some thoughts so far…

Mark and Cathy Pemberton:We have big plans for 2014. We plan to visit Japan and Brazil and hopefully Yellowstone and maybe Bosque del Apache. We had pretty good success last year with our conservation themed blog “One World” and hope to expand our reach with it (http://pembertonphoto.wordpress.com). We use the blog to explore conservation issues as well as photographic subjects. We invite everyone in DVCC to check it out and follow us. We will also attempt to mount a private, conservation themed, gallery show of our work in 2014. And finally we plan to resume our work in portrait photography and develop our skills in people travel photography.

Now, we’d love to hear what the rest of you DVCC’ers are planning. Can we help each other? Send us an email with any questions or comments.

Kathryn Stelljes: My family is off to Kauai so I’ll be shooting rainforests and beaches. I’ll also be visiting colleges with my daughter so I hope to get some good architecture and people photos. I’ve started a coaching business for artists and scientists and when my website is complete (http://www.freshviewcoaching.com), I’ll be featuring photos and other art, especially of patterns…if you’ve got something you want to share, let me know!

Let Us Know your plans and activities…some of us know each other well, but many of us don’t!

General and Competition Meeting Schedules are updated on the website for 2014. Let me know if you see any errors or have additions/changes. Standings are also up-to-date.

DVCC January Competition

On January 22, we had 53 images and the judge was Wayne Miller, a Certified Professional Photographer. He expressed his belief that each photographer should help others grow and improve, and he gave lots of helpful comments on each image.
