Minutes April 8, 2014

Members of the Bridgewater Photo Club were welcomed to the April 8 meeting by thier president, Sara Harley.

– our wrap up dinner and awards night is May 29th. The price will be $15 per person. Please pay Debbie Black by the first meeting in May if you plan to attend.
– yearbook orders are being taken by Sara Harley. Books are $40, and you must bring your payment to the April 22nd meeting…cash or cheque payable to the club.
– if you haven’t filled out a club survey, you can still email your ideas to Sara. The program committee and field trip committee will be using your ideas to plan next year’s program.

Several from the club had been on a field trip to the Dublin Shore Wharf, Bush Island and Little Harbour wharf last month. A slide show of images taken – costal scenes, details of weather-worn buildings, fishing equipment were shown.

The competition was the sight and sound essays. Judges were Charlene Morton, Dave Collins, and guest speaker Barry Burgess. A high quality of work was evident in these musical slide shows. There were 6 entries: Ecclesiastical Architecture UK, Bare Bones, Folk Harbour Festival, Free Admission to the Country Fair, As Winter Ends Along the Chester Trail, and One C.U.C. Please. The winning Sight & Sound Essay will be announced at the year end awards dinner.

The evening’s guest speaker was Barry Burgess, a member of the Photographic Guild of Nova Scotia. For years, Barry has hiked through the forests of Nova Scotia to photograph various waterfalls in each of the four seasons. His work has resulted in a sizable collection of beautiful images.

The Bridgewater Photographic Society will meet again on April 22, when Keith Michael Cossey will give a presentation on “Dropology: Liquid Art Photography”. Also, this year’s new members will enter their work for competition.

Meetings for the club wrap up in May.
