Smoky Mountain Field Trip w. CCoH

CCoH is setting up for another record year of outings. Not sure how Mike can find and schedule this many things to see and shoot for a group! If you’re a member you also get to read Bob’s informative newsletters, and see the great videos John puts together… and that’s just a few of the perks.

This trip included Smokey Mountain Railroad in Bryson City.  I want to visit again and ride the train for my birthday this year- well that or plant a white birch tree grove.

Abstract April with CCoH

The camera clubs critique forum theme was abstract. I chose two I just saw as abstracts and one I made using ICM (intentional camera movement). On the window shot the critiquer Susanna Euston, mentioned the hot spots so I reworked it just a bit.

Below those three are the close contenders I didn’t submit.

I still have photos to go thru from the clubs multi-stop outing to Strawberry Hill in SC but need to get some other things done before getting to them.

CCoH March Before & After and Repetition

These are my 3 for Gimmie your best shot, repetition, and if you think they look familiar they were all from my last trip to the Biltmore House. The Gimmie your best shots have to be shot this year and I didn’t have time to go back thru this year of photos or purposely do a shoot for the theme so I used these.

Even though I was a member of the camera club starting back in 2010, I wasn’t a member when we did before and after shots. The club provides some images to choose from and each member edits up to 3 as they see fit. I think it’s neat to see the common and unique things each photographer sees. It’s sort of like Chrysta Rae’s Scavenger hunts over on Google+, well maybe a little more ‘inside the box’ than those 🙂
