Eyeglasses by Mary Jean Winkler

“Photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” Elliott Erwitt

Pictures from Jacob's Pillow in Becket by Birgitt Pajarola



Storybehind the pictures:

Since my unforgettable trip last March, I was busy moving to Kent. My life entered a very chaotic, stressful period and the last thing I could not do, was taking my camera out and create something. However, I had tickets for Jacob's Pillow in Becket, Mass. and went earlier than the professional performance took place. I wandered around and came to the spectacular Inside/Out stage where some young kids were rehearsing for a free performance later on
. My camera was packed btw. moving objects in my car, totally unused since month.. I did not have the time and care, nor did I remember how- and best to focus. Set aperture or anything else, I just clicked like any smart phone user but with a Fuji camera that needs some manual love. Fortunately the battery was not dead. Here is the result.

“Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art.”

Changes for the NECCC and PSA competitions by Bert Schmitz

I hope all members had a good summer with lots of great photographs that you will submit for the NECCC and PSA competitions this year. There are some changes for the competitions in this new season, the most important one is the bigger size of the images we can now submit.
Please read the changes below and start preparing your images. For NECCC and PSA competitions, images can now be 1400 pixels in the horizontal direction and 1050 pixels in the vertical direction. Photographs must fit within those dimensions.
Unless your photograph’s proportions are in the exact ratio of 4 to 3, one of these dimensions will be less than the maximum. For example, if you have a vertical photograph, the height will be 1050 pixels, but the width will be significantly less than 1400 pixels. A square photograph will be 1050 pixels by 1050 pixels under these rules. It is suggested (though not a requirement) that entries be saved with the proper amount of compression so that the file size does not exceed 800-1000 KB. If saving from Photoshop, a quality setting of between 7 and 9 is usually sufficient to produce a high quality file. Keeping the file size small makes e-mailing and handling easier. It is strongly suggested that all photographs be converted to the sRGB color space. That color space most closely approximates the capability of monitors and projectors to display color and usually results in the best presentation of your image.
By entering these competitions you give NECCC/PSA permission to reproduce your photographs in connection with the activities and publicity of the NECCC/PSA including display on the NECCC/PSA Internet site. The copyright, however, remains with the photographer and the photographer will receive credit when his/her photograph is used. If you object to this stipulation, please do not enter your photographs.
Once a photograph has been entered by the Housatonic Camera Club into a NECCC Interclub Competition (either pictorial or nature), it may never be entered again. Entering a photograph into the NECCC pictorial category means it may never be entered in the NECCC nature category; also, a photograph entered in the NECCC nature category may never be entered in the NECCC pictorial category. (Note: This rule is for photographs the Housatonic Camera Club sends out to the NECCC competitions, not for the in-house club competition.)
Photographs entered by the Housatonic Camera Club in the NECCC competition, can be also entered in the PSA competition.
