Subject:  Treasure Valley Camera Club and the Corona Virus

 

To the Members of TVCC

 

Our nation and the world are undergoing an outbreak of a new and unknown disease. Many of our defenses against illnesses are ineffective against this virus or simple not available.

  

The CDC has updated its recommendations to the public this morning and have made the restrictions already in place more stringent. As of this morning they have recommended that gatherings of 50 people or more should be canceled for the next 8 weeks. We routinely get 40 attendees at our meetings.

  

Given what we both know and don’t know about this disease, we are choosing to suspend all Treasure Valley Camera Club activities until the CDC changes its guidance. This is effective immediately. The suspension applies to meetings, field trips, photo walks, etc.

  

We encourage members to continue shooting. You can decide to go out together. You may want to consider keeping the group small and use self-driving to an activity. There are a lot of photographic opportunities in the spring and it would be hard to just give up on them. The decision is yours to make.

  

Keep posting your great pictures on TVCC FB and the TVCC website which now supports member photos up to 1Mbyte in size.

  

The TVCC Board will keep club members updated as things change.

  

Good health to you all.

  

Ben Gundy, President

Landscape photography is one of the art forms where the canvas is already laid out in front of the photographer. It becomes the challenge to make the canvas into the artist’s vision. Instructors of photographic composition say, among other things, that it’s the art of what not to include in the picture that makes a compelling visual expression.
