Welcome to Charlotte Camera Club! We are a growing, active club of photographers spanning all ages and skill levels. We offer a fun mix of opportunities and ways to participate.

Our meetings are held on the second and fourth Thursdays of every month except the months of November and December (no second meeting those months).  Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. and conclude by 9:00 p.m. We normally meet at St. John's Episcopal Church at 1623 Carmel Road, in Room 205, but are having virtual meetings during the pandemic. Members and guests are invited to arrive a little early to socialize before the meeting begins.

2021 Scavenger Hunt

It’s time for the CCC 2021 Photography Scavenger Hunt. The list of 10
items/themes/subjects is below. Print it out and bring it with you as a
handy reference when out shooting.

The idea is to get as many as you can, but try for all of them. Images
only qualify for one category. For example, your “Doors” image might
also fit the “Broken” category, but it can’t count for both. You have
about 2 months to shoot. You’ll turn in your images by midnight Dec 1
and we’ll show the results during our Dec 9 online club meeting.

The scavenger hunt is completely optional.
It’s not a contest. It’s meant to be a fun exercise to help you get motivated to shoot
something different and think creatively. However, this activity is for
Charlotte Camera Club members only. If you need to renew your
membership or would like to become a CCC Member, click here.

Do not use existing images from your files – the idea is to get out, shoot
and have fun!

1. Pink
2. In Camera Abstract (e.g. zoom, double exposure, camera movement, etc.)
3. Negative Space
4. Back Light
5. Flash
6. Very Low Light / Night Sky
7. Things that start with the letter L
8. Doors
9. More than One
10. Broken

Below are instructions for uploading your Scavenger Hunt photos. I’ve
also attached the original email with Scavenger Hunt topics.

Scavenger Hunt Image Instructions:
Images – Submit only one image per item/theme/subject. An image
might fit two items/themes/subjects, but you have to choose one.

Naming – Please name your images using the NUMBER of the
scavenger hunt item as it appears on the list, followed by your NAME. If
you don’t have a photo for one or more of the topics, skip that number(s).
Example: 1-yourname, 2-yourname, 3-yourname, etc.

Sizing – Use the usual dimensions. Horizontals should be no wider than 1400 pixels
and Verticals should be no taller than 1050 pixels.

By midnight Dec 1 images should be uploaded to:

o Drag and drop the images you wish to upload or “Browse Computer”.

o When the upload is complete, you can click View Completed files to review which were uploaded successfully.

o When finished, click the “Done” button in the upper righthand corner. You will be redirected to the Gallery where your images should appear. (If they do not appear there, wait a minute or so and refresh the browser.)

o There is no undo or way to delete an uploaded image. If you have an image that was uploaded in error, you will need to send Eric an email with the file name so he can delete it.    e_notheisen@comporium.net
