... striving to learn, teach, and share our passion for photography
Announcing the 12th Annual Cary Photographic Artists Juried Photographic EXhibition

This year CPA is adopting the services of CaFÉ, the on-line “call for entry” manager, to handle our registrations. The CPA Board decided to drop our usual print brochure to save on the cost of mailing and instead subscribe to CaFÉ, anticipating that the Juried Show will reach a wider population of potential entrants. To obtain show details and register your entries for this show please go to the CaFÉ web site HERE , Sign Up as an Artist (free) and fill in the application form.

If you want to enter the show, but choose not to register using the CaFÉ website, please print, complete, and use the Delivery Day Entry Form linked to HERE.
Please be aware that there is a $15 surcharge to use the Delivery Day Entry Form.

If this is your first visit to the Cary Photographic Artists page, all the Cary Photographic Artists members would like to welcome you to our website!

The Cary Photographic Artists meets at 7:00 p.m., on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month at The Cary theatre, 122 E. Chatham St., Cary, unless otherwise noted. Map to Parking at The Cary - Please observe parking restrictions.

If you wish, come early at 6:30p.m. and join in our social time. It is a great opportunity to spend a few minutes catching up with friends, getting to know fellow members, introducing your guest around, exchanging ideas and generally having a nice time before the program starts!

Meeting Highlights

October 9: Compositing by Jon Meyer
One only has to browse through Jon's galleries on Jon's web page, to realize he is masterful at creating composite images. Some of these composites have been entered in international competitions. Among the numerious galleries there, here are some containing noteworthy composites; In the Mind's Eye: A Portfolio of a Human Journey, Theme and Variations on the Foggy Woods, and Conceptual Gallery.

October 23:
Canadian Rockies: Bernard Chen
Frozen Lake Bubbles and More
Anyone who has viewed Bernard's photography has undoubtably come away in awe of it. Regardless of where in the world his landscape photographs were made they are impressive. Similarly, the videos made with his friend Nam give flight and motion to some of the same scenes thus enhancing the views presented to us in his landscape photographs. The narrations accompanying the videos are thought provoking, leaving one wishing for a more real and less vicarious experience.
We, at CPA, are fortunate to have Benard discuss with us his and Nam's technique for photographing frozen bubbles in the Canadian Rockies.
