"A light on the family" is by Alan Hunt, of the Land of Waterfalls Camera Club.

The Thursday, May 20, meeting of the Land of Waterfalls Camera Club will continue the time-honored photographic show-and-tell format first introduced in 1843 at the Edinburgh Caloptype Club. The program is built on the theme "family" and will be conducted with Zoom, starting at 7 p.m.

Photographs depicting families can be found in grandparents' wallets, books, shoe boxes full of paper prints, framed photographs in homes and museums, photo albums, slide shows, websites and emails, still unprocessed in digital cameras or in camera club show-and-tell programs like this one.

Some photographers strive to create "family" photographs as fine art that are original and fresh.

Others seek to catch the right moment or the right expression on a baby's face. Efforts are made to capture the meaning and essence of "family." To many around the world, the picture preserves the warm memory of loved ones. Photographs of cute animal families are popular. There are no restrictions on what constitutes a "family," so subject material is almost unlimited and quite varied.

In the show-and-tell program photographers are given an excellent forum to exhibit their artwork and/or to display the right capture. They can explain the essence of the images and how they shot it or "developed" (post pro-cessed) the photograph.

Like show-and-tell programs over the last 178 years, they are not a competition but a way to inform, educate and share feeling, meaning and creativity.

"Fox Family" is by Jeff Miller, of Mountain Lens.

Because this open-to-the-public monthly meeting is live on-line with Zoom, club members and guests are encouraged to sign in at least 10 minutes early at 6:50 p.m. Non-members are welcome to go to http://[email protected] for invitation and access information at least a day prior to the meeting.

The Land of Waterfalls Camera Club is open to all levels of photographers, from beginners to experienced professionals. To offer a forum for participatory learning and sharing, the club features two special interest groups (SIGs). The Capture SIG concentrates on how to take the best picture and meets at 7 p.m. via Zoom on the third Monday of the month. The Post Processing SIG explores the developing and control of the digital image into the final photograph and meets via Zoom at 7 p.m. on the first Monday of the month.
