Ohio Photography Club

.This Group is for Photography hobbyists that wish to learn the Art Of Capturing Light, that would like to learn how to use basic editing skills, that wish to share images and help beginners better understand the mechanics of photography, plan group outings,
and give critique and instruction on improving photography skills to those that seek that advice.
No nude images may be posted in this group. Tastefully done partial nudes may be allowed, but I will delete any images I do not find suitable for our membership.

Attention OPC members. The Ohio Photography Club will be hosting member’s only contests each month starting April 1st.
Contests will open on the first day of each month and end at 11:59 PM on the 25th of each month. Voting will begin on the 26th and end at 11:59 PM on last day of each month. The winning image will be used as our groups front cover photo the following month. Landscape formatted images preferred since they fit better as a cover photo, but starting with our June 2014 contest I will accept Portrait formatted images in our contests. No date restrictions, no editing restrictions (unless specifically designated for a contest theme). Entries must be submitted by the actual photographer or by a member of their immediate family only if they are a member that does not have direct access to facebook.
Once voting starts, ‘liking’ an image will count as one vote. Members may like as many images in each contest as they wish, and they may also vote for their own images. These images will also be available for voting outside of our OPC group since this is an open group.
Here are the list of subjects through December:

Upcoming contests:
August-Fairs and Festivals. Share your images taken at past or present fairs and festivals.
September- Vacations! Share your photos taken during vacations, past or present. Any subject matter.
October-The Color Orange. Capture any subject that is orange, from fall foliage, and fall harvest to Halloween!
November-Thankfulness. Share images of what you are thankful for this year.
December-Happy Holidays. Share your images that reflect your favorite holiday. Any holiday! From photo image greeting cards, to a bountiful table, to happy faces Christmas morning!

With so many nice photos being submitted in the contests, I'm going to add runners up. For each 10 images submitted, there will be one runner up chosen, besides the contest winner. Only the Winning photo will be used for our cover, but I'll keep a collage of the winning image plus all runner ups in a new album in the group photo section.

Members are welcome to advertise their own personal camera equipment for sale here, but please do not post ad links, unless it involves new equipment, such as new lenses or cameras, that you wish to share with our group. Links to articles for improving your photography skills are fine. Ads wanting to sell you lessons or books are not. This group is for sharing information, not selling it
