North Bethesda Camera Club's Annual Photo Essay Show


   Mark your calendars! North Bethesda Camera Club is pleased to present the Photo Essay 2013 program. This continues our Club‘s long-running annual tradition in which NBCC members produce slide shows of their beautiful photographs set to music. This year is the 27th anniversary of NBCC slide shows.  Past programs have been very well received, and this is our most popular event of the year.

  This will be our sixth year presenting the show in a large and comfortable theater-like setting. This year the presentation will be on Sunday afternoon, March 10, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m., in the Rosborough Center auditorium at Asbury Methodist Village, Gaithersburg, Maryland.  The auditorium seats 250 people very comfortably. (Nevertheless, we recommend arriving early to get a good seat).

   At the risk of losing the element of surprise, here is a preview of some of this year’s photo essays. We will see some exceptional nature and landscape photography: West Virginia in winter; the coast and mountains of Oregon; and the moods of Yellowstone. We will see some exotic international photography, including street photography in India; the throbbing Samba Street Carnival in Rio; the charming market town of Sommières in France; intimate views of the art and history of the Baltics; the diverse people and wild animals of Africa; and the evocative Shangri-La in Tibet.

    And we will see a wide range of photographic techniques in essays involving infrared images, time-lapse photography, abstract floral and “mauled wall” images, and underwater photography.These essays—and other surprise essays—will delight you, entertain you, make you laugh and cry, and perhaps motivate you to develop your own photo essays for presentation to family, friends, and colleagues.
