Candlewood Camera Club Newsletter for May 31, 2021

What is Candlewood Camera Club doing during the pandemic? 

Hello members, visitors and friends.   

Like many others we have switched to an online virtual meeting format. So, until further notice, there will no longer be in person meetings or print competitions ( which have also been temporary cancelled by NECCC).

We will still have monthly digital competitions. These competitions will consist of Assigned Subject, Open Color and Black & White categories. Members will be permitted to submit 2 digital images per category for a maximum of 6 entries: 

  • Assigned Subject = 1 Color and 1 B&W
  • Open Color = 2
  • Black & White = 2 

The Club is looking to do the following this fall: 

  • Continue with Virtual meetings
    a. Competitions
    b. Programs
  • Plan and schedule outings and events where members can get together, following social distancing, wear face masks, and exercising other safe practices while taking photos of interesting and photogenic locations.
  • Examples may include The Bronx Zoo, Botanical Gardens, etc.
  • Members can help us out by suggesting other photo and location ideas.
