Here are some highlights from April meeting if you missed it at Jake's CrabShack on the Boardwalk. The Central Jersey Bank are pleased to have photos up on display and the show has been extended for any photographers who wish to keep their photos up at the bank for display and sale. In the future there may be some type of rotation of "newer" photos at the bank as well.
The Belmar Artwalk by BAC is on Sunday April 18 from 12pm – 5pm in Belmar. This would be a fun opportunity to bring a camera and take candid shots of everyone being creative as they “doodle” on the sidewalk or for interesting photos of participating stores and art demos. For listing of stores see www.belmararts.org/BAC/Artwalk_2010!.html.
Polo Match is still on for upcoming Spring photo trip and a potential trip to New York City to Grand Central Station is still on agnenda. Some people have also mentioned local gardens or sculpture locations --- these might be good for smaller groups to check out. Anyone who wishes to take charges over trips would be welcome!
At this past meeting, we checked out some websites of photogrpahers at the group. The Net is is a good way to share your photos with others, either those you know or everyone. Some websites, like Flickr, are like a huge photo album to show off your work. Other professional websites, designed by the photographer or website company, include the artists work as well as additional information about the artists and background and purchasing information. It is also possible to purchase website templates, and custom design a site using the template as your base design.
Here are just a few of the websites from our group:
