October Meeting PCPDX

Featuring Rob Woodcox!

We live, work, love and play in a society that sells us an identity. We’re constantly pulled by outside forces to be different or something that we’re not. Using the power of self expression and photography, Rob Woodcox raises the discussion about how much power lives right within you. Tapping into his imagination to create show stopping, world renowned images, let Rob take you on a journey to creating powerful, meaningful photographs that will help you succeed in your personal and professional goals.

April Meeting PCPDX

We are very happy to have David L Reamer is our guest speaker in April! We will get to pick his brain and hear some of his fantastic stories. David will be offering feed back and critiques for our ‘Playing with Food’ challenge photos! Don’t miss it!

If you would like to learn more about David and see some of his work, start with his website and check out the Backdrop podcast!

”I believe in honesty, I believe in authenticity and most of all I believe in food. And when given the opportunity, you will usually find all three in my photographs. My mission as a photographer is to capture the moments in-between. The smile, the smirk, perhaps the split second wink that silently says “There is nowhere else I’d rather be.”

Printing Demystified with Mark Fitzgerald

Printing favorite images can be one of the most gratifying experiences for a photographer. But when the result doesn’t match expectations, it quickly becomes one of the most frustrating. That’s because there are a number of nuances you need to be aware of when printing, whether you do your own printing or send your work to a lab. This presentation is designed to explain important details of the printing process to help you get dependable results every time.

Tuesday's Meeting (Everyone is Welcome!)

Doors will open at 6:30 to sign in, contribute, grab a name tag, and hand-in your print if you decided to participate in the "#05 Exploring and Creating Content". Also, feel free to add a "Challenge" suggestion to the box. Then mingle away! 

Our discussion will be looking at the recent experience of PDX Squared. Half of this year's winners were PCPDX members! And many of us participated but did not win. The judges only had the images to judge on. No title, no description, and no writing. If you have ever been in any kind of competition you will also have the insight to add to this discussion. If you have never been a judge or a participant in any photo competition, this may be an interesting conversation to be present for!

IF YOU ARE BRINGING A PRINT:

Info on the current challenge can be found here: 
https://www.facebook.com/notes/photo-club-pdx/05-challenge/191720061466820/

If you need to arrive late please still check in and please STILL COME! Just don't plan on submitting a print. You can definitely participate in the critique and discussion, though!

You just want to come for community or be a fly on the wall and check us out...? Fantastic!! See you on the 2nd Tuesday of the month :-) 

REMEMBER $$:

A contribution will be collected for each meeting from every person attending, please come prepared. A minimum of $5-10 is recommended, depending on what you will afford. This investment will go toward our locations, any present and future costs that arise, such as website, guest speakers, and future galleries etc.

We will all meet up at Coava Coffee on SE Grand. Once we have a group assembled, we'll split into pairs or groups of 3 and head out anywhere in the industrial SE to make pictures or portraits. Remember that this month's challenge is giving your photos context via the writing you do along with the photos you take. If you haven't chosen a photograph you already have, the variety and possibility of all the things you could shoot down there is pretty vast!
