North Shore Photographic Challenge 2022

Posted in: . | 0

The North Shore Challenge is a long running annual CAPA (Canadian Association for Photographic Art) Pacific Zone competition, hosted by the North Shore Photographic Society. The Whitehorse Photography Club has participated in the Challenge almost every year since sometime in the 1980’s, back when we had to mail in members’ precious original slides for judging. Of course it is all digital now, and it has been opened up to individual photographers as well as clubs. Subject matter is completely open and image editing is unrestricted, so artists can let their imaginations run wild.

Three judges score each image up to a maximum of 10 points and those numbers are added together, so the individual scores shown in the gallery are out of 30. Club entries are comprised of 6 member images. Our club scored a total of 144.5 points, placing us in a tie for 12th place out of 29 clubs that participated.

The Whitehorse Photography Club participated again in the latest Celebration of Nature competition held late in 2021. This competition for photography clubs in British Columbia and Yukon that are members of CAPA is hosted by the Lions Gate Camera Club. Images are intended to show nature in its purest form with no evidence of “the hand of man”, and only very basic post-processing is allowed.

We placed a very respectable 5th amongst 20 participating clubs, with a total score of 147 out of a possible 180 points. Each individual member’s score is out of 30 points.

The “Celebration of Nature” is a photography competition conducted under the auspices of the Canadian Association for Photographic Art (CAPA) and hosted by the Lions Gate Camera Club for photography clubs in CAPA’s Pacific zone. The Whitehorse Photography Club’s selections for entry into the 2020 Celebration of Nature were made by the members attending a special ZOOM meeting on October 25th. Eleven members submitted up to 4 images each. After choosing the best image from each participant, the 8 photos in this gallery were selected for our club’s entry.

March 2020 Focus Stacking Assignment

Posted in: . | 0

The 2019-2020 meeting season of the Whitehorse Photography Club ended prematurely in March with the COVID-19 lock down. Our last two meetings prior to that explored the topic of focus stacking, the technique of combining multiple exposures taken with different focus points into a single image with greater depth of sharp focus than could be achieved in a single exposure. An instructional meeting was followed by a practical hands-on session in which members photographed props for focus stacking. Their focus stacked images were to be shown at the following meeting. That was canceled, but a few of the participants submitted their images anyway. They are presented in this gallery.
