From David O’Rourke, Outings Director, Northumberland Photography Club
I have a few updates for you on this Saturday’s Apple Blossom Tyme Festival in Colborne. First, the weather is supposed to be terrific with sun all day as we take in the offerings of the local vendors (with food to sample), the vintage cars and tractors on display, the soap box derby race, the midway, the contests, etc. Second, the good people at the beautiful Loughbreeze Bay B&B (http://www.loughbreezebay.com ) where we will be meeting for our 12:30 BBQ have expanded their luncheon offerings just for us; we’ll be eating in their beautiful garden area and enjoying a choice of potato salad, Cole slaw, three bean salad, home-made egg salad, chicken salad and of course delicious BBQ’ed hamburgers, multiple condiments included, an assortment of soft drinks or bottled water, and a surprise desert—all for $15 tax and gratuities included (beer and wine extra). Finally, Terry Self—one of the most distinguished members of our Club—has agreed to lead the nature walk after lunch; Terry will be giving us a handout before the hike with some instructions on using our cameras and then listing 4 subjects for us to capture, using his info, while on the hike. It will be an amazing day, but I need to know if you will be coming. So far I have only heard from Sharon Thompson, Allie Hawley, Elaine Amenta, Mary Talbot, Pat Calder, Pat Warder, and Terry. Please email me to confirm—and for this event you are welcome to bring your spouse/partner for the lunch—but please email me asap at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know.
We’ll be meeting at 9 am on Saturday at the Cobourg commuter parking lot on the west side of Hwy 45 (Division Road North) just north of the 401 and then car-pool together to Colborne. If you live east of Cobourg, you will probably want to head directly to Colborne. We’ll be bumping into each other on the Main Street more than once, and then meet at the Loughbreeze Bay B&B for 12:30. Lunch will be an hour or so, and then Terry will lead us on the hike.
I received this self-explanatory email. Can anyone help? It’s always a good idea though to take down coordinates of strangers you photograph with an offer to send them a copy.

I was with the Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment, this past weekend. We were in the midst of training when a female member pulled up in a car and asked for a picture. We obliged and thanked her for the photo op. Is this person a member of your club? Some of the troops from my section would like to see/download it from the person who took it.
If this person is not a part of your club, disregard this E-mail, and have a nice day.

Please note that the correct date for the shoot is SUNDAY, JUNE 16
My partner, Janis Eves, has put in a fairly extensive perennial garden on our farm since we moved here at the end of 2009. As we did last year, we are inviting members of the photo clubs to which I belong to come, hang out for a while, bring a picnic lunch if you wish, and to photograph flowers in the garden, our horses, birds, chipmunks and other wildlife, on Sunday June 15. Please email forward the attached invitation to all members of the club. Our address entered on Google maps, gives the correct location.
WHILE WE DO NOT USUALLY POST EVENTS CONNECTED WITH COMMERCIAL ESTABLISHMENTS, THESE FREE WORKSHOPS MAY BE OF REAL INTEREST TO SOME NPC MEMBERS
Henry’s Kingston location will be offering an exciting series of Photography Workshops and guided Photo Tours in May.
I have attached a schedule of events and would ask that you pass this information on to your membership.These events are offered free, but pre-registration for each event is required. Registration can be completed in-store or via e-mail. We have limited number of spaces available and our past experience is that spaces fill up quickly.
In addition to the workshops and walks, Henry’s will be sponsoring a Photo Contest starting May 1.
Please have interested members contact us at 613-389-9864 for more detailed contest information.
We look forward to your Club Members’ participation.

The Oshawa Camera Club is holding their Annual Spring Salon on May 2nd and 3rd. I have been to this show in the past and it is well worth while attending this event.
This weekend marks the annual spring Ganaraska Studio Tour. Visit local artists and an NPC member, Mary Talbot. The drives involved always afford photographic opportunities. And, the weather looks like it will cooperate!
Please note the above important rule change. This opens the contest considerably and allow more of you to submit. Good Luck!
On Monday April 15, 2013 our next technical meeting will be held at the Pine Academy starting at 7:00 pm.
Our speaker for the evening will be Mary Talbot who will be giving an in-depth two hour presentation on composition.
“Seeing Beyond the Familiar – Enhancing Your Photography Experience”
Using individual images and audio-visuals, Mary will illustrate effective arrangement of subject matter in the picture space, including care, and balance of composition; line and shape; texture; perspective; and focus.
Do plan to attend!
