June Meeting Notes…

June 2018 Key Happenings

Great month for getting out and seeing fellow SNAP members in various shows, highlighted below the SNAP dates shown here. Look forward to seeing everyone!

June 22 Deadline for Lexus Dealership show: Motion/Movement – remember you may submit five (5) images.  Photos will be on display through December. For more info, see below.
June 23 See below – ideal deadline for sending us your before/after photos for the June meeting.
June 26

 

6:30 – 8:00 | Regularly scheduled meeting

Topic: “Before/After” photos.  Everyone is encouraged to share 1-3 photos (at least one photo!), showing the photo(s) before any editing/processing, and after. You may send these in digitally to snapnashvillesubmissions@gmail.com, or bring prints or your own thumb drive.  Your choice whether to bring before/after images you’re pleased with, or something you’re not entirely satisfied with (or a mix).  Either way, we hope to learn from each other – tips, tricks, philosophies.

In setting things up to receive everyone’s digital files with before/after images for our June meeting, I realized that it would be helpful to have a naming convention so that the photos can be more easily displayed from DropBox during the meeting.  When you submit your files, please name them as follows:

yourname1_before
yourname1_post
yourname2_before
yourname2_post
yourname3_before
yourname3_post
This will put them nicely in the before/after sequence.  It would still be helpful to have your files submitted before the meeting.

Place:  Stefan Engstrom’s Office. Education Networks of America:  618 Grassmere Park #12, Nashville, TN 37211 (https://goo.gl/maps/EAjfKo6HU312). This is an agreeably more centrally located spot, and we thank Stefan for making this possible.

Early July Look for Call for Entries for the JCC September show.  Theme as always will be “open.” Juror will be Tamara Reynolds (https://tamarareynoldsphotography.com).
July 12th 6:00- 8:00 |Preston Hotel artist reception and Grand Opening of Preston’s new art gallery.
July 24 July SNAP meeting, potentially a juror critique from the Preston or the Lexus show. Thanks to Lee Ramsey, we will begin meeting at the community room at the Tennessee Electric Cooperative Association on Sidco drive, another agreeably more central location.

May Meeting Notes…

Read below for updates on our two exhibits now in process, as well as one planned for September. See what we have planned for our monthly meetings (as well as where!). Read about photography with SNAP and other artists around town, and other opportunities to submit entries. And don’t forget there are three ways to stay up to date with us: through email notices, our Facebook group, and our https://snapnashville.org website.  See these details at the end of this month’s SNAP NOTES.

Meeting Summary and Updates

April:  Sadly, our Frist Outing in late April had to be cancelled, but several were able to make it to the photography panel the next day, on Photography and Activism, with Keith Calhjoun, Chandra McCormick and Dr. Makeda Best moderated by Dr. Susan Edwards.  See other photography happenings around town at the end of these notes.

May: Our joint meeting on May 1st sponsored by the Brentwood Photography Group and Dury’s featuring  Sam Abel, a Cannon Explorer of Light, was pure inspiration. Thanks to Sue Henry, BPG president and S.N.A.P. member for organizing and inviting us.  Perhaps his main message was “Compose and wait.”

June:  We will reconvene on our regularly scheduled June 26 meeting  to share “Before/After” photos.  Everyone is encouraged to share 1-3 photos (at least one photo!), showing the photo(s) before any editing/processing, and after. You may send these in digitally to snapnashvillesubmissions@gmail.com, or bring prints.  Your choice whether to bring before/after images you’re pleased with, or something you’re not entirely satisfied with (or a mix).  Either way, we hope to learn from each other – tips, tricks, philosophies.

Or more broadly, might be something signifying an important stage or turning point or benchmark.
