ANNUAL PHOTO ESSAY SHOW

Every year since 1986, NBCC has celebrated its anniversary with a special slide show, usually held in March. Over the years these slide shows evolved into electronic photo essay shows. For each program, approximately 20 members produce short photo essays of their wonderful photographs set to music.

 

The program is intended to showcase the participants' photography and to entertain members, their families and friends, and members of other local camera clubs.

 

Our objective is to build upon the successful elements of prior-year programs, while continuing to make improvements to the presentation.

 

The individual essays are consolidated into a unified program, with deliberate sequencing and a consistent look and feel. The audience enjoys a single presentation, not a one-by-one showing of separate presentations. The program is organized to flow coherently from beginning to end, with a common framework and standardized author introductions. At the same time, the authors enjoy full artistic freedom and maximize individuality within their essays.

 

The overall program includes a wide variety of photo essays, and usually lasts approximately two hours including a short intermission. Originally, these slide shows were held in the club's Wednesday night meeting place, but attendance grew and in 2007 we began holding the shows in large theater-like auditoriums on Sunday afternoons.
