Yesterday was the North Georgia Camera Club Council Shootout (NG3C) held at Reinhardt College in Waleska, Georgia. I was one of the presenters and the topic I chose was to go out and shoot the same subjects, without advance notice of what they were, as the participating teams. The teams would either break up into smaller groups for each of the 5 topics, or go out and then select the best ones for the judges. My goal was to get 5 images that I thought were good representations of the subjects, but I wouldn’t be entering them with the judges. The 5 subjects that were drawn (actually they had me draw the topics from a “hat” at the 8 a.m. meeting) were: Shiny, Letters, Arches, Kindness, and Winter is Coming. I went out in search of the obvious first to get something to fit the category and then went out searching for an “out of the box” image in case I felt I needed something different. The first thing I learned was the Post Office won’t let you photograph “Letters”, after being asked to leave I moved down the road in search of other subjects. Once I told myself, just to have fun, and think, subjects presented themselves. My final image, that I chose, to represent “Shiny” was this “Hog” ornament on the front wheel fender of a cool Harley Davidson that pulled into the Gas Station as I was refilling my coffee cup. I explained I was on a photo scavenger hunt and the riders were more than happy to show off their bikes. I don’t think any of my images would have won and I will share more images as the days go by, but I had a lot of fun, met some great folks, visited with good friends, and got to spend a day outside in the fresh air.
