June "Inning" Outing
Though we are still under moderate restrictions due to Covid-19, we are getting out and about somewhat. Let's see how we are keeping our photography skills up. Share an image you've taken this month, or share something you've been working on in your home darkroom whether it's digital or an old-fashioned smelly one. Visit the outing post for more details and a link to the image gallery.
With your positive feedback about the idea of going virtual, the People's Choice contest is gearing up for a strong return in JULY! The next contest theme will be FOOD. The entry period will be open from July 5th - July 11th. You may enter one (1) digital image for each month's theme, similar to our prior in-person people's choice contests. Click here to read more about the new virtual contest procedures.
The 1st Triannual Digital Competition Results were presented on Wednesday, June 24th. If you missed the presentation, you can re-watch in it's entirety, here. Visit the Digital Contest Gallery to view all of the fabulous entries!
Congratulations to our First Place Winners!
