Variety of photography at local group’s exhibit in Qualicum Beach

From wildlife to architecture to street photography and more, there is a lot to see at the Oceanside Photography Society’s new show, said past-president Ed Dunnett.

Twenty-seven photographers will have 45 photos showing at the TOSH exhibit, with styles including landscape, portrait, abstract, still-life and travel photography as well.

But the diversity doesn’t stop there. The photos will be presented as framed photos, canvas wraps, and, new this year, aluminum prints.

Though past shows have sometimes been restricted to photos taken locally, this show tries to offer a wider view of the world, said Dunnett.

“We’re calling it The Diversified World of Oceanside Photographers,” he said.

The photography society began as a club in 2003, and has grown to include monthly meetings with guest photographers demonstrating new and different techniques (like underwater portrait photography, for instance), as well as additional how-to demonstrations, Dunnett said.

Over the years, members have migrated from film photography to mostly digital now, though it wasn’t an easy transition, noted Dunnett.

The club continues to work on learning new and different techniques and styles of photography.

Despite ups and downs in membership numbers in the past, the group now has more than 95 members.

The photo exhibition runs from Oct. 30 to Nov. 18 at TOSH in Qualicum Beach (122 Fern Rd. West), with an opening reception on Wednesday, Nov. 1 starting at 2 p.m.
