April 2017 Last Competition

Berrien Springs Camera Club held its last competition for the year. As always, the meeting included some beautiful photos, with topics from angles to wild life. Our judges, Joni King, Ruth Steinhagen and Sandy Hanson, did a great job of judging 81 photos. They were willing to stay afterwards and give critiques for a few of the photos. Pranay Gaikwad, 269 Photography, also helped critique and demonstrate a few tips on editing with Lightroom. April 2017 digital of the month was awarded to Suzanne McDonough's Golden Boy. Thanks to Leroy Patterson and the McDonoughs for snacks. 

See you next month, May 3, for our End of the Year Final Competition. We'll be judging all the acceptable photos from the 2016-2017 BSCC season.
