The DCC emphasizes club competition as a learning process. Importance is placed on helping the beginner, or new member, feel at ease, ask questions, learn and participate.

From Photographic Tourist to Explorer
by Alan Whiteside
(More)

Alan believes people tend to photograph in one of two modes: either as a tourist or an explorer. Neither mode is “right,” and it’s OK to switch back and forth—as long as it’s a conscious decision. When thinking about his own images, he considers images made in explorer mode to be more compelling—meaning they convey something he thought or felt when he was making them—or they’re worth more than just a quick glance before being filed away.

               

 

This Week's DCC Stay at Home Challenge

DCC Lock Down Activity #8 Foto Family Fun

To tie these two ideas from this week together, for our next photographic challenge, I am proposing the topic, “Family Foto Fun”. Please select and send up to 6 “snapshots” of your family to share. The photos may be of anyone from anytime and anywhere; no need to make new images. We are not looking for contest entries, we are seeking examples of what photography does so well, the preservation and sharing of precious memories. Go into what passes for a digital shoebox and find some family snapshots. Please share some of yours with the rest of us. No one will be judging you. Your submissions may include your name if you wish. The photos should be sent in as an email attachment (lpetterborg@gmail.com) by Saturday, June 6th. There will not be a new photo challenge the following week because of our contest meeting via Zoom.
