Critique Group (2:00 PM EDT)
Intended for print photographers,  you are invited to join a small group of club members who gather in an informal setting either in-person or via Zoom, or sometimes both, depending on member's preference to show a few of their photographs and receive constructive feedback from fellow photographers. The meeting takes place once a month in small groups so photographers can share their images and discuss their vision. This is a gentle and fun atmosphere that promotes friendship and learning for members only. Let Jim Samanen know if you would like to attend and he will coordinate groups and sign-in instructions. You can email Jim at jamessamanen@gmail.com This is a members-only event.
Members' Forum: Underwater Photography (6:30 PM EDT)
Underwater photography can be a lot of fun, whether you are a SCUBA diver or a snorkeler, and it doesn't require as much expensive equipment as it once did.  But there are some challenges to consider when shooting in an underwater environment.  Denise Molzahn will talk about equipment and challenges and also share some images from some of her underwater adventures.
Eric Mencher - From Instamatic to iPhone: A photographic Evolution (7:30 PM EDT)
Eric Mencher's presentation will look at his 40 year career as a photographer, including a trip as a teenager to the Soviet Union armed with only a Kodak Instamatic, a newspaper career that included 22 years at The Philadelphia Inquirer, and the last ten years in which I lived primarily in Guatemala, photographing with only an iPhone.  Eric Mencher is a documentary photographer concentrating on long-term projects and everyday street photography. Recent projects include contemporary life in the Maya villages of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, and religious traditions in Antigua, Guatemala. Previously, he was a photojournalist at The Philadelphia Inquirer, where he covered assignments around the world and in my own backyard, including the post-apartheid era in South Africa, the aftermath of genocide in Rwanda, life under Fidel Castro in Cuba, the civil war in Chechnya, and cannolis in South Philly. I also photographed stories in the arts, including the 100th anniversary of Bloomsday, the day James Joyce's Ulysses takes place, Cezanne in Provence, and a series illustrating Cervantes' masterpiece, Don Quixote. He was the recipient of the Overseas Press Club Award for "Rwanda: Aftermath of Genocide" and have won other major awards, including prizes in the World Press Photo and Pictures of the Year. My fellowships include a Penn State University Professional in Residence Fellowship, a Terra Fellowship from the Giverny Institute at the Museum of American Art, Giverny, France; and a Pew Fellowships in the Arts, discipline winner.   Eric Mencher is an original member of the Instagram based collective, Hikari Creative. His current camera is an iPhone.
Auto and Airplane Graveyard Workshop (9:00 AM EDT)
This event is members only. Thanks to covid, there has been a dearth of workshops this club year. Well, we are going to finish up with a special one. Professional photographer Richard Lewis runs workshops at an amazing salvage yard in South Jersey, and he has agreed to do a special workshop just for us, and he is even offering a discount.  The event will be on April May 15th from 9AM to noon and is in Atco, NJ. The yard is loaded with wonderful photo opportunities from bathtubs to old cars and buses to helicopters and jet fighters. It is not too far from McGuire Air Force Base and has quite a number of unwanted military relics. If you like rust and peeling paint and just general decrepitude, this place is a photographer's heaven! Betsy and I have done this event with Rich in November, and the place is amazing. We can’t wait to go back! The location is a little over an hour from West Chester. Click this link to Rich’s website where you can read more about the workshop, see some images, sign up and make your payment of $75 directly to him.   We are limited to 25 attendees, so don’t be left out! Please, let Jim Wilson know if you have registered with Rich.
Mentor Meeting (In-Person!) (7:00 PM EDT)
The meeting will be at 7:00PM at Westminster.  We will be working on camera setup and camera settings.  Mentees should bring their cameras, manuals, and questions! This event is for members only.
