Photographic Theme: Black and White
Note: This meeting was previously scheduled for October 18. This is a date change. Some images are just better in black and white. During this meeting, we will explore the advantages (and disadvantages) of removing color in order to emphasize form and textures. Members are invited to submit about 3 (between 1 and 5 is OK) PAIRS of images- the original image along with your black and white conversion. You may submit photographs taken specifically for this activity or you may search your catalog of past photographs as a way of exploring how you may already incorporate this concept into your photographs. During this meeting, we will have the opportunity to view, discuss and explore each photographer's use of the concept. Please submit your PAIRS of images to [masked] with the subject line 'blackandwhite'. Before uploading, please insure that your submission is in .jpeg format and approximately 2000 pixels on the long dimension. Consider submitting 1-5 pairs. (For purposes of this meeting- duotone or tinted images are also appropriate. Also, if you do have any images originally taken in black and white, you may submit those.)

    What we're about

    This Meetup page is intended to facilitate communication with members of the Flagstaff Photography Club and to provide a means for prospective new members to learn about the club.

    You are invited to attend one of the scheduled club meetings and to join the club as a member. Membership presently costs $10 per year and will enable you to participate in competitions and sales. You will also be on the club mailing list.

    By registering with Meetup you will receive automatic notice of club activities. However, as there are a limited number of registrations allowed, we will remove registrations of those who have not attended a meeting in some reasonable time (a few months). If you wish to remain registered, be sure to come to a meeting and join!

    Mission Statement: The purpose of the Flagstaff Photography Club is to promote interest in photography and provide opportunities for educational presentations, organized meet-ups, photo critiques, competitions and group exhibit and/or sales.

    Membership: Membership is open to anyone interested in photography. Meetings: Meetings are usually held on the third Thursday of each month at the Joe Montoya Adult Center at Thorpe Park from 6-8 pm. Meetings will be announced here in advance. Meetings may be scheduled at least one month in advance with announcements on the website and on MeetUp. Competitions: Photo of the Month Competitions will be held 3 times per year at meetings in January, May, and September. Photos will be submitted in digital format via portable media for download onto the computer of the volunteer who will project the images onto a screen for viewing. Images will be deleted from the volunteer’s computer immediately following the presentation for Photo of the Month. 8 photos will be chosen for display in the public library (Main and Eastside) if elected by the photographer during the assigned month. The 8 winners of the Photo of the Month Competition will be submitted for publication in the Arizona Daily Sun during the assigned month (it is the responsibility of the photographer to submit a digital file with a short narrative to the Competition Coordinator to submit to the Daily Sun for publication). Other competitions may be proposed based on the interest of the Club members.
