Hello PCC Members, I have been receiving emails regarding the upcoming Spring Salon. I am the new CICCA rep, so I thought I would fill you in before we have a train wreck on our hands. ( See what I did there). The turn in is on the 24th of this month, April for those of you not aware. The cost for the Salon is 4 puny dollars per digital and print. That’s 8 dollars if you enter both digital and print. 4+4=8. Mom would be so proud. Please go to the ciccaclubs.com website, click on the spring salon documents menu and open the spring salon invitation to gain all of the knowledge needed to enter. If you need any assistance, please feel free to email me and I will try my best to assist you. You can also email the webmaster for CICCA, again me, so either way you can’t loose. Please put CICCA in your email title so I don’t send you to spam.
During the question and answer at Ian Plant’s seminar last month, one of the attendees asked him something similar to this:
“So, you’ve gone to all these remote and fantastic places and taken all these fantastic photographs, what about someone who really can’t travel all around the world to find images. What do we do?”
Basically, the answer was to practice taking photos at home. If you can take good photos here, you can take good photos when you do eventually get to these places.
I wanted to do a presentation on just that, finding good photos here in Illinois. But I also promised Sam Black I would cover England and Scotland at some point. So, I decided to do both. On three separate trips over the last 20 years to England, Scotland and Wales, I took pictures of where I was at the time, rarely venturing out to the ultra-spectacular locations. It was combination vacation and photo excursion when I could get the time. So time was short on my own, or I had to find the shots where I was.
I’ll be covering different themes and subjects I am always looking for when I am out and about. This is the United Kingdom Edition.
