Monday, September 19, 6:00pm Club Photo Walks
Join fellow PCC members meeting in person to shoot at one of 3 locations:
Broad Cove Preserve, Cumberland (6:00pm) Rain or shine. This area includes the Cumberland Town Beach, a pier, floats with kayaks in a rack, and the Broad Cove itself. High tide is at 5:53pm, so it might be a good time to catch reflections. Group leader is Steve Thomas. Meet-up location: Broad Cove Preserve, Beach Road, Cumberland (Google maps).
Portland Waterfront (6:00pm) The Portland waterfront has no lack of images to capture, including a narrow gauge railroad, docks, and shops on coblestone streets. Group leader is Jim Mueller. Meet-up location: ME Narrow Gauge Railroad, 49 Thames St., Portland (Google maps).
Scarborough Marsh Bridge & Pine Point Fisherman's Co-op We will begin at the small beach and pier at the Fisherman's Co-op, which faces west for a sunset. You can stay at that location or, later, go up Pine Point Road a short ways to the Eastern Trail and bridge which offers a wider view of the marsh. High tide is at 7:09pm so it may be ideal to catch clouds and sunset reflecting in the water. Group leader is Dave Therrien. Meet-up location: Pine Point Fisherman's Co-op, 96 King St., Scarborough (Google maps).
Note to participants: Whichever photo walk you attend, you're encouraged to capture any kinds of images, but as a way of imposing some creative constraints, please submit one image for the themes below (a total of 4 images). Images must be in JPEG/JPG format and sized to a maximum width of 1920px, and max height 1080px. Name your image file theme-yourname.jpg, for example, blue-ansel-adams.jpg – other theme names are blur, black (for B&W), and best. Submit them by Oct 1st to firstname.lastname@example.org (note that this is a special email account set up for PCC photo walks). The images will be shown for discussion at the October 10th meeting.
