President's Message

June 2012

NVPS is on vacation till Tuesday, September 4--the day after Labor Day.  Is this because we are too busy shooting?  If you are not going someplace exciting and exotic this summer, we have so many interesting places to shoot  right here at home.  We can make day trips to Skyline Drive to photograph fawns, mountains, waterfalls and the shore to photograph birds, fishing villages and wetlands.  Whatever your favorite genre, it is here. 

Again this year we will have a gallery on the club website for What I Did on My Summer Vacation.  Please post an image taken between June 15 and September 3. 

This year, not only are we continuing to welcome newcomers to our meetings, but we are going to go farther in encouraging and advancing the skills of beginners.  In September we will start an ongoing project to build photographic skills and the understanding of composition--learning to see.  The project will include periodic assignments, mentoring, on-line gallery and a Members' Gallery presentation at the end of the year to share what we accomplish.  We hope the challenges will be interesting enough to involve experienced photographers as well-- as participants or as mentors and critiquers.  This project will be headed by Willa Siegel and past president, Bob Friedman.

If you are in town, there is an interesting photographic exhibit at the National Gallery that will end in early August.  It shows street photography of Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Harry Callahan and some more recent photographers.  There is so much to see and do here at home.

Of course, we will have our annual field trip to photograph the Lotus flowers at Kenilworth Aquatic gardens on Saturday, July 7.  And don't forget the photo ops at the Smithsonian FolkLife Festival in late June and early July.

There are still opportunities to volunteer-- It takes a lot of people to keep things moving.  We especially need someone to make coffee!  Please, this is not a big job but it is certainly appreciated.

Former President's Message

Hooray, my last article.

Very simply, thanks to all of the volunteers who make this club work.

I encourage the members to continue to volunteer without hesitation to support the incoming President.  If you don't I become the stuckee.

Have a great summer. Take wonderful photos and post in the fall in the "What Did You Do This Summer" gallery.

Monthly Program

Sept 4th, 2012

At the time the newsletter was published, our Sept 4th speaker had not yet been confirmed. The September issue of FotoFax is scheduled for distribution during the last week of August and details will be included. You can check the club website periodically for updates during the summer.

Education & Training

Sept 11th - Watch the website for more details.


Up Button


Sept 18th - Judge and Details TBD


The first competition of the next program year will be September 18th and it will be an open category. Three themed competitions are planned. The exact dates for each theme will be announced before the start of the 2012-2013 club year in September 2012.
  1. Bridges

  2. The Sun is your Friend.
    • The image must be taken at least two hours after Sunrise and at least two hours before Sunset
    • The image must be taken at least two hours after Sunrise and at least two hours before Sunset
    • The image must portray that the sun is shining and not obscured. e.g. there are shadows.
    • The intent of this theme is to take a photo in hard light.
    • Light that comes from a single, point source, such as the Sun, and falls directly on the subject from one direction, without being reflected off another surface, is known as hard light. It generally casts dark shadows and produces high contrast pictures with deep blacks and bright highlights. The shadows also generally have a very distinct or hard edge, so that the outline of the object closely reflects the shape of the shadow.

  3. A Different Point of View. Look up, look down, and look behind the subject (Look at the subject from the top, the bottom, the back--in a nontraditional way.)

Field Trips

July 7th — Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens

Every year, NVPS schedules a field trip to Kenilworth Park & Aquatic Gardens. It is a National Park Service site located in the northeastern corner of Washington DC. A homesick war veteran from Maine started the Aquatic Gardens as a hobby with a few wild water lilies in a single pond. Time and diligence turned a trickle of curious visitors to a stream of customers for a growing commercial garden of twenty-eight ponds. The park is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna including water lilies, lotus, wild flowers, blue herons, butterflies, dragonflies, etc... Address: 1550 Anacostia Avenue, NE, Washington, DC 20019

Information about the gardens can be found at http://www.nps.gov/keaq/index.htm

The National Park Service provides directions (including metro) to the gardens at http://www.nps.gov/keaq/planyourvisit/directions.htm.

If you are entering Washington DC on I-395:

continue on the SW/SE FWY towards its end and take the right exit on to Pennsylvania Ave SE. After crossing the Anacostia river, turn left onto the DC-295N (Anacostia Fwy). From the Kenilworth Gardens website: Take Route 295 north to the Burroughs Street Exit. At the bottom of the ramp go left. Go straight to Kenilworth Recreation Park. To get to Aquatic Gardens, go to the right of the athletic field entrance to follow Lee Street to 40th around a curve to Anacostia Avenue. Pass a hand ball court and wooded area to the gardens. An alternate to the Aquatic Gardens is to continue north on Route 295 to the Eastern Avenue Exit. Make a U turn to the left at the light at the top of the ramp and go down two streets to Douglas Street. Make a right on Douglas. At the end of Douglas make a right on Anacostia and continue a block and a half to the park on the left.

  Willa Friedman

  Vice President for Programs:

 Tom Burden

  Vice Presidents for Competition:

 Mike Whalen
 Mike Kane

  Vice President for Operations:

 Jim Norman


 Tom Brett

  Secretary / Historian:

 Georgette Grossman

Thank You Notes from Last Year's Board Members:

Thank you to and from the Tech Team: The Folks in the Background
from Sam Schaen, former VP of Operations

We introduced a new projector and laptop this year. These new pieces of equipment contributed to improved reliability and outstanding image quality. I would also like to thank Joe Miller for refurbishing the light box for the print competitions.

The fact that the work of the tech team goes largely unnoticed is a tribute to the members of the team. Each week, members of the team are among the first to arrive and the last to leave. They make the presentations and competitions go seamlessly. The team includes: Jeff Hancock, Kip Holdridge, Scott Shaw, and Paul Uhler. Jeff, who runs the competitions, has introduced some innovations this year (including display of multiple images near the end of a competition and real-time web searches to echo points being made by the speaker).

Thank You to Members Gallery Participants

To all of you who participated in this year’s Members Gallery I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks and appreciation. Thank you Edward Fink, Bob Friedman, Willa Friedman, Curtis Gibbens, Timber Gooding, Will Haubert, Melanie Marts, Jim Norman, Susan Phillips, Ursy Potter, Bill Prosser, Lea Schlosser, Ceasar Sharper, Rosemary Smith, Dan Ward and Mike Whalen. With your extraordinary presentations we were able to visit Cuba, Haiti, the Galapagos, Ghana and a lot of Europe. We went to the Grand Tetons and Alaska; we explored Phoetry and the Civil War. There were landscapes and cityscapes, wildlife and models, black and white and color. It was a privilege to see each and every image.
You have all been extremely generous to put in the time, effort and expense needed to share your exceptional work.
Everyone, please welcome next year’s Members Gallery coordinator, Dasha Rosato. Please contact her if you are interested in showing your work during the 2012-13 club year

Thank you! Ginger Werz-Petricka, former Members Gallery coordinator.

Congratulations Portfolio Participants

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s portfolio project. Once again the club membership was privileged to see an exhibition that showcased the high level of professionalism and talent that you bring to your art.

It is always interesting to see the wide variety of subject matter that members choose to explore for their portfolios and this year was no exception. In color and in black and white we had food, trees, motion, landscapes and children, birds and their feathers, commuting and reflections, heroes remembered and places forgotten, close-ups, abstracts, travel and staying at home, the beauty of the ordinary and of course, those body parts.

Congratulations to Brittany Anderson, Ken Barnett, Claudia Copeland, Bill Corbett, Kim Enevoldsen, Bob Friedman, Willa Friedman, Rita Leake, MariAnne MacGregor, Judy McGuire, Tuan Pham, Susan Phillips, Jan Ponder, Ursy Potter, Thomas Pratuch, Bill Prosser, Lea Schlosser, Ceasar Sharper, Paul Simmons, Dan Ward, Ginger Werz-Petricka, and Mike Whalen. Your work met and exceeded the challenge of the portfolio project. We hope you will be delighting us next year with another wonderful collection of images.

Your portfolios serve as inspiration to the members who will participate in the Portfolio Project in 2012-13. Thanks, Ginger Werz-Petricka, Bill Prosser, and Paul Simmons former portfolio Project Co-chairs

Ginger Werz-Petricka and Ken Barnett will be facilitating the project this upcoming year.

Notice: Workshop and contest announcements of events not sponsored by or affiliated with NVPS are provided as a courtesy to Members. Individuals should review the detailed contest rules and conditions to determine what impact entering images has on rights and ownership of the submitted images. Review the descriptions of workshop to whether participation in a workshop would actually meet personal learning goals. NVPS attempts to screen events for legitimacy and quality, however NVPS does not recommend these events and cannot assume responsibility for their ultimate quality. We recommend due diligence and encourage you to share your experience with other club members.

Members' Resources:

Do you need help with a photography problem, but don’t know who to ask? The Members’ Resource Program is here for you. Have you ever been asked “How do you do that?” If so, then consider sharing your knowledge with other club members.

The Members’ Resource area of the club web site http://nvps.org/main/members_resource/ contains a growing set of presentations and ‘how to’ documents created by club members. For example, it includes Jay Heisel's excellent Forum presentation from the January meeting on Social Photography, with his detailed explanations. It also contains the Members’ Resource List, which provides the names and email addresses of club members who have volunteered to help club members looking for help on specific technology and technique topics.

If you have a photography question, check the Resource List for the name of a club member who can help you with it. If nobody has indicated they have expertise in the topic, then contact me and we’ll find somebody. If you have some expertise that you’d like to share, let me know what topics you are able to address.

If you’d like to share your knowledge through a presentation, club website document or FotoFax article, and just need some help getting it off the ground, let me know and I can help with writing, editing, or graphics. Jay Heiser, Members’ Resource Program Coordinator, jay “at” heiserhollow.net .

Members News:

Our members routinely receive photo awards and recognition and have images in shows. As FotoFax only comes out monthly, the best place to look for current events is on the website at :


Mike Kane was featured in a recent blog about late blooming entrepreneurs. Congratulations to Mike, who is our new competition co-chair.


Bill Prosser's entry in the B&W Portfolio Contest 2012 has been selected for a Merit Award.  Several of his images will be published as a 2-page spread in the Special Issue #92 of B&W magazine, scheduled to arrive on newsstands early June. There were 81 winners in this category (out of a total of 413 entries, consisting of 681 portfolios, totaling 7,500 images). Bill can be confident that they felt his work stood out in a way that deserved this special attention.

Northern Virginia Alliance of Camera Clubs (NVACC)

The Northern Virginia Alliance of Camera Clubs (NVACC) is an informal entity started in 1997 by Joseph Miller with the assistance of Dave Carter and Ed Funk. Its purpose is to promote communication and cooperation among area camera clubs. NVACC is made up of Member Clubs and Associated Member Clubs.

Did you miss a great speaker at NVPS? She just might be speaking at one of the other (lesser) clubs in the area. NVACC publishes a monthly Calendar of Virginia Member Club Events that can be found at http://www.nvacc.org/Calendars.html.

NVACC has published a Field Trips Guide Book for Photographers, which provides information about nearby areas that camera clubs might wish to visit. See their booklets at:
