Former President's Message

June 2013

At the end of any endeavor it is usual to think back to what one has tried to accomplish. Some days, I just tried to stay afloat, but one of my goals was to involve novice photographers and improve their skills. Toward this, the Self-Improvement project was repeated (with special thanks to Paul Simmons who first did this in the 2006-2007 club year). It was an attempt to demystify one of the most complex aspects of photography--composition, by breaking it down into small, understandable units. I hope it was valuable because I had fun being involved in it.

First, thanks especially to the members. Thank you all for giving me the opportunity to share your photography--through competitions, education and training, galleries and forums. NVPS is an incredible community of talented and generous sharing photographers who all strive to improve their skills and broaden their knowledge. It is exciting to be a part of this community.

Next, special thanks to the people who stepped in when there was a problem; and we had our share of crises:

to Claire Carroll who enthusiastically agreed to co-chair Field Trips when there was an opening.

to Mary O'Neil, our perpetual Vice President of Programs. Although her job prevents her from attending meetings, she found speakers for the remainder of the year--even on very, very short notice.

to Corey Hilz who was available on an hour's notice to fill in when our speaker notified us that he was in the hospital and they wouldn't let him out to speak. While we were sorry not to hear Alex Mody and see his amazing photography, Corey's work is an equal treat. And perhaps we can get Alex for next year.

and to my husband, Bob Friedman, who filled in wherever he was needed. He became Co-VP of Programs, doing the parts of the job that didn't fit Mary's schedule, as well as running the Self-Improvement project and chairing the nominating committee.

to Nikhil Bahl for judging the EOY images.

to Dale Nelson who took over as Meetings and Facilities Coordinator to organize the End of Year Banquet when, very sadly, long time member and friend, Andy Klein suddenly left Northern Virginia in pursuit of his career.

And to the people who are never mentioned because they are doing such a great and dependable job that they are taken for granted:

to Scott Musson, who totally redesigned the website even though we are resistant to change and refused to learn how it works. The website is beautiful!

to Vice President of Operations, Jim Norman and his Tech Team--Paul Uhler and Kip Holdridge, and their emergency "back-up", Sam Schaen.

special thanks to Sam--just knowing that he was always there and has held so many different positions that he could fill in almost anywhere, was reassuring.

and to Jeff Hancock, who made projection into entertainment. We could hardly use a noun when its Wikipedia article or website appeared on the screen.

to Mike Kane and Mike Whalen who made Competition look easy--which is the highest compliment. That is a hard job. And the passers, and runners--Jean Feighery, Timber Gooding and Chuck Campbell and everyone else who assisted them to make it run smoothly.

to Treasurer, Tom Brett...........for being treasurer and PSA representative and for anticipating problems before they occur and bringing Oreo cookies to meetings.

and to Jamie Kiechlin for making coffee and tea.

And to Georgette Grossman for being Secretary and Historian--for being there and making it look effortless.

To Dennis Govoni and Roger Lancaster, Training and Education co-chairs for finding people to teach us what we told them we want to learn.

to Ginger Werz-Petricka and Ken Barnett for the Portfolio Project again. If you haven't participated in this, you must at least try. Yes, it is very hard--but that's how we learn and grow. For me, this project has been one of the best opportunities to grow that NVPS has ever provided.

and Melanie Marts for member resources.

And thanks to Bill Vanderpool and Claire Carroll, Co-chairs of Field trips who came up with new and interesting places to photograph.

to Dasha Rosato for working so hard to make Members Gallery successful.

and to Willa Siegel for bringing new ideas to Members Forum.

to Membership Coordinator, Beth Morris and welcomer--Sherry Doyle, and the Welcome Committee Coordinator and Database manager, Curtis Gibbens.

to John Quigley, for being Exhibits Coordinator and NatureVisions representative again.

to the team who invisibly updates the website and sends out emails at Editor@ NVPS.com, -- Scott Musson and Matthew Schmidt.

to Fotofax editor, Dan Ward who pulls rabbits out of his hat to get the Fotofax out on time every month, even though we haven't yet sent him the information he needs.

And to everyone who comes to meetings, listens, takes notes, applauds, learns and grows.

And to everyone who shared their knowledge, images, workflow tips, travels and enthusiasm with us.

And best wishes to the new board--they are already working to make next year the best year ever.

2012-2013 Competition Year

The 2012-2013 competition year came to a close with the last monthly competition held on May 21st. Co-VP’s of Competition Mike Whalen and Mike Kane would like to express their appreciation to all NVPS club members who took an interest and invested their time to participate in competitions this year. "We hope that everyone who participated had a great learning experience and are excited about growing by more actively participating in competitions next year."

Speaking of next year, as a reminder there are three (3) themed competitions spaced throughout the year. The themes that have been selected for the next two years are:

• Abandoned and discarded
• Out of place
• Famous places

• Street Photography
• Water
• Still Life

The monthly competitions are a dynamic, integrated effort on the part of numerous club volunteers. Without their time, effort and technical expertise we would not have been able to successful present the monthly competitions. Our deepest thanks and appreciation go out to the following members who worked to make the monthly competitions run effortlessly:

Print Competition
Jean Feighery
Timber Gooding
Chuck Campbell
Dale Nelson
Melanie Marts

Website and Digital Projection
Scott Musson
Matthew Schmidt
Jeff Hancock
Andrew Fritz

Tech Team
Jim Norman
Paul Uhler

In May, the NVPS membership voted to change the competition rules for next year as an effort to distribute the competition more fairly across all the skill levels of our members and to structure the competition to maximize the opportunities for comment and feedback from our judges. Please look for the updated competition rules to be posted on the Club website in June 2013. Here are is a brief summary of the changes:

1. Add a third Competition Class
2. Change the names of the Classes to Class 1; Class 2; & Class 3.
3. Eliminate the “participation point” in competition scoring.
4. Allow a single entry per category for classes 2 and 3, and two entries per category for class 1, keeping the maximum entries/category at three.
5. Add guidance to the rules addressing workshop images being entered into competitions.

Mathew Brady's Portraits of Union Generals - Continuing Show

Mathew Brady was the most famous photographer of the American Civil War. As he was nearly blind by that time, it may be debatable as far as how many photos he actually took, but he was brilliant in organizing a professional studio with 20+ teams of photographers. (Just remember, f32 and be there!)

There is little doubt his work defined photojournalism for the era and dominated the field for many years. The National Portrait Gallery features a collection of Matthew Brady photos of Union Generals. For more details, see their website: http://www.npg.si.edu/exhibit/uniongenerals/#4

Northern Virginia Alliance of Camera Clubs (NVACC)

The NVACC website has been given a major overhaul and features images from the 3rd Annual Abstract Photography Exhibit! http://nvacc.org/home/

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.

NVACC publishes a calendar of area member club events that can be found at: http://nvacc.org/home/resources/calendar/agenda/

NVACC has a free, downloadable series of 25 guide books for photographers, which provide information about nearby areas that camera clubs might wish to visit. See their booklets at:

Editor's Note

Just before this issue was ready to send out, we received this note from Joseph Miller:

"By any measure the Third Annual Joseph Miller Abstract Photography Exhibit was a success. There were 489 entries and 128 images were juried in. Several hundred visitors viewed the exhibit and there were five sales. Entries came from six States (Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, North Carolina, Texas, and California) and also Israel and South Africa.

Obviously, there is interest in abstract photography, both national and international. A good abstract photograph is modern art; a poor abstract photograph is just that, a poor abstract photograph. Unfortunately, abstract images do not do well at camera club competitions.

Juried in images from the first three abstract photography exhibits can be found on the NVACC.org website.

The Fourth Annual Abstract Photography Exhibit is scheduled for May 2014.
Joseph Miller

Congratulations to all whose images were selected. Unfortunately, my work really heated up over the past few months and I missed this event. I am looking forward to next year's show.

Comments, requests and submissions are welcomed. They should be sent to editor@nvps.org or given to me at a regular meeting. I test each issue of the newsletter using Internet Explorer, Safari and Google Chrome to ensure the layout and embedded links work correctly.
