2019 Scavenger Hunt

It’s not too early to get ready for December 2nd!   That’s when we’ll have our year-end banquet… and when we will show off our 2019 Scavenger Hunt images!

Here’s a chance to be creative and have some fun.  These may be images you capture in your travels, or images you “set up” on location or in a studio.  Here are the details:

  • Between now and our banquet in December, make pictures for the subjects below.  Then choose your best six picture for each of six different subjects on the list.
  • Your images must have been taken during 2019.
  • Make 4” x 6” prints of your six pictures.  You may also have them printed as a collage.
  • Mount your prints on a 16” x 20” board – any color.  Use a good stiff board that will stand up well when on display.  (See the note below.)
  • Label the six images with the subjects chosen.  Don’t title them otherwise.
  • Print your name on the rear of the poster board.
  • Bring your completed project to the year-end banquet.
  • You must be a Lancaster Camera Club member to enter.
  • Each person attending the dinner—both members and guests—will be able to vote for what they feel is the best set of Scavenger Hunt pictures.
  • Awards will be presented to those whose pictures receive the most votes.

    Note: The night of the party, if available, bring an easel to display your picture board.

Wonderful Images With a “Toy” Camera

Tom Debiec, who is the invited speaker for the LCC’s next meeting this Wednesday, June 13th at 7:00pm, writes:

“Toy cameras are simple, inexpensive film cameras.  Unlike the latest digital cameras that feature almost unlimited control to the photographer, the simplicity and design of toy cameras cause distortion, vignetting and light leaks.  These defects are embraced by the users of these cameras who are able to use them to their creative advantage.

“For the past seven years, I have been using toy cameras almost exclusively.  In this presentation, I will explore the capabilities of these cameras and expose you to the work of the photographers that love them.

“Several of  my photographs are featured in the Expanded Visions show currently taking place at the Ware Center in downtown Lancaster.  My series, “The Kruger Deception” was featured in the Lancaster Lens show at the Lancaster Museum of Art and at the Infrantree Gallery.  My photos have also been featured nationally and internationally.”
