The first regularly scheduled Education Night occurs on January 3, 2018. We will be presenting the New England Camera Club Councils Digital Circuit critique. During the summer months NECCC invites its member clubs to submit images to the circuit critique. Highly qualified NECCC judges review and critique the images providing a taped discussion on the merits of each image with suggestions on how images might be improved. In some cases the may provide an adjusted version of the image to demonstrate the results of their suggestions.
Bring your notepad to jot down the suggestions you might apply to your work both when shooting and during post processing. You also get to see the work from other clubs from across New England.
Wednesday, January 3, 2018, 7:00 PM at Anderson Way, Dartmouth.
Non Member Guest Fee: $5.00
We hope you are often visiting the WCCC Meetup page where you can check on the Meetups and FYI photo opportunities we have schedules. Getting out and shooting with your fellow members is a great way to learn from each other and visit great venues in our area. Brian Santerre, our Education Chairperson, is always looking for interesting photographic opportunities. Message Brian if you have a suggestion for a club outing.
NECCC Winter entry deadlines are approaching. We encourage you to submit your work to our NECCC representative Joan-Marie Proulx. The submission due dates for the Winter competitions are January 7 for Digital and January 17 for Print. Be sure to speak with Joan-Marie at Wednesday’s WCCC Meeting!
Fort Phoenix Polar Plunge
The annual Fort Phoenix Polar Plunge is always an interesting photo opportunity! Those that take the plunge into the icy waters of Buzzards Bay dress in crazy costumes and are in great spirits!

Our next WCCC Competition Night is scheduled for Wednesday, January 17, 2018. Although the theme is “Open” and gives you an opportunity to choose your own subject, etc. we hope you will concentrate on the Composition information presented at the December Education Night. There was a great deal covered that evening. Try to focus on just 4 or 5 elements. For example; Have a clear Point of Interest (subject,); having Foreground, middle ground and back ground in your image; Simplicity; Rule of Thirds; Leading Lines.
You can keep these in mind as you look over the entries and make your choice based upon those elements as well. Non Member Guests who might be interested in joining our club are welcomed to attend.
