Bridgewater Photo Club Minutes
October 13, 2015
Submitted by Julie Naas

Our rainy evening meeting on October 13,2015 opened with our president John, and club announcements.

Nancy Johnson then introduced our guest speaker for the evening, Darryl Robertson, a published photographer for Photo Life magazine. His sight and sound of Birds In My Spruce Tree showed us that things to photograph are right outside our doors. Darryl then spoke on infrared photography, explaining the how-to’s of this beautiful technique.

Charlene Morton informed us about our up-coming field trip to Lahave Islands and Crousetown dam on Saturday.

The club executive has decided to renew the club’s liability insurance, but without the equipment coverage, which had a $500 deductible per item. This should reduce our premium by around $100 per year.

The executive has decided NOT to change Regulation 13a (competition scoring). Accordingly, our point system will continue to be from 2 to 5, and NOT up to 5.5 as had been previously announced. However, the executive has decided to try allowing half-points in scoring for this season (2.5, 3.5, 4.5).

The executive has decided to change Regulation 8 (re-entry of images in competition). The changed regulation will read as follows:

Any one image can be entered once into print or digital image competitions which contribute to the photographer of the year. Images may be re-used in essay competitions.

Members were asked to follow the image guide lines as sent, rather than refer to Appendix F of the Bylaws. This makes for less work on the part of our projectionist.

Members were encouraged to volunteer to judge our photo competitions.

The upcoming floral competition has 31 entries. The deadline for floral print submissions is Oct. 24/15.

Slide shows of the Eastern Passage field trip and last year’s honour awards finished our meeting .

Next meeting is Tuesday October 27, 2015, at 7:oo p.m. Everyone welcome.
