We will also go over the rules and guidelines for the Charlotte Camera Club competitions, explain the Merit Point system and how we use the four contests throughout the year to qualify images for the year-end competition. We hope that you will join us and learn about the competitions and how you can participate.

Guest Speaker, Dennis Kiel - What is a Good Photograph?
Today everyone can take a photograph. But the question is: is it a good photograph? In this presentation, we will talk about the aesthetics of photography and what it takes to create a coherent image. We will examine a number of iconic photographs from the past and great work by some of the finest photographic artists “shooting” today. It should inspire everyone to be more creative, to look at their subjects differently, and as a result, become better photographers. (Image: Black Eye, Sally Mann 1991)
