June 11 Competition
Black & White Images

Black and white images can bring out features that are lost in a color picture. Photos for this club competition can have any subject, but search for lines, tones and forms that make a striking black and white image.

July 9
Post-Processing Mastery
Karen Jones

Anyone who has seen Karen Jones' work knows she is a superior photographic artist. Her images are beautiful but perhaps more importantly capture great emotion that speak volumes. Karen seems to be able to integrate both the left and right sides of her brain when she creates an image. A big part of her success comes when she captures just the right moment--the twinkle in a subject's eye or the critical split-second in an action shot. Another important component of her creative genius is her ability to process her images. She is one of those photographers who "get it right"; not too little and not too much. Just the right touch to make her statement.

Please join the Camera Club of Oak Ridge's, Tuesday, July 9th meeting for an evening with Karen Jones who will share some of her post-processing techniques.


Our August meeting will be our yearly Meet-n-Greet where we try to get to know our members better by showing some of their photographic work. Members are also given a 50-photo gallery in which to display their work online, throughout the year.
