This meetup group has been created to allow the members of the main organization of the Marin Photography Club (http://wp.marinphotoclub.org) to have access to our upcoming field trips and other photography events. The Meetup events are also accessible to the public, unless otherwise noted.
Please join and RSVP to attend any of the field trips. Joining the Meetup group will allow you to get all the information you need regarding the event, and post photographs at end of event.
Who we are: The Marin Photo Club Meetup was created to allow us a way of informing our members of upcoming Events, so we may plan our trips in a way which supports our members.
It is a place for us to share our event photos and our comments in a positive learning environment outside our normal scheduled competitions.
We are a group of passionate photographers interested in learning and sharing techniques, knowledge and friendship among our members. We create opportunities to extend our formal and informal portfolios, have competitions on different levels and form special interest groups to learn more about different topics of photography.
Hi, there, photo friends!
Time for a new Challenge! *** Abstracted Reality ***
Let's challenge our creative boundaries while stuck at home and stimulate our imagination by exploring everyday items found around our home and transform them from the ordinary into the extraordinary...creating "Abstracted Reality".
Abstract photography is not so much about artistically recording what is there, but creating something new and different out of what exists already. Find an object, then give new life by altering - to challenge the viewer’s perspective - inviting a sense of mystery, wonder and intrigue.
***Here are the details:
Create an image between the dates of May 10th and June 30th at 10:00pm. DO NOT use an archived image. This process is about challenging yourself, with a project to concentrate on during this time period.
As you upload and caption your image, let us know WHEN and WHERE you took the picture and how it fits with the theme of this challenge! There will be a public vote at the end of the challenge.
- THE IMAGE FLOW, our great MPC sponsor in Mill Valley, will print the winning photograph on high quality archival paper, suitable for framing.
- THINK TANK, another great MPC sponsor, has been closed since March and may not be able to provide a bag for this challenge. They are sorry, but will let us know when they get back running again.
- Your image will also appear on the Meetup home page for the Marin Photo Club Meetup Group
