This month we have 2 speakers, Cindy Conlin and Harry Kranenberg.
Cindy is a well-known Wildlife Photographer who needs no introduction to the Club. She will update us on her adventures and images since her last presentation.
Harry will enlighten us on HDR photography.
The Critique Theme for the March meeting is ‘Water, (no lakes, waterfalls, or streams/rivers)’. You can provide a print or upload a digital image through the “Upload Monthly Theme” box on the Web Page.
As usual you are invited to submit images to Ron for his slideshow. 5 is the recommended number of images and they should be around 1MB and labeled with the photographer’s name. Ron’s email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember to bring some loonies and toonies for the 50/50 draw and treats.
welcomed 39 regular members and four guests to our February Meeting. She was
followed by Lewis who introduced club member Joseph Leduc as our guest speaker.
Joseph’s presentation, titled Photography 101, was a college course in
photographic principles, shooting tips, and down home philosophy on creating
images with a “wow” factor. Hopefully we’ll be able to post his talking point
slides on our web site in the near future. However, there were some significant
points that we should implement immediately:
After every shoot, return all of your camera settings to your normal
neutral starting point. That way you won’t inadvertently leave some unwanted
settings on your next shoot.
Before clicking the shutter, think through what you want your image to
set your ISO, shutter speed, aperture,
colour balance (etc.) accordingly.
When you’re at your location, plan your shoot as if you will never
return (ie. Don’t do the “oh well” I’ll get it the next time).
the break, Ron ran the members’ slide show, which never ceases to amaze us at
the incredible talent in this club. Next, Mike critiqued member “theme”
submissions (Love/Romance). A total of 7 theme and 7 other images were on
display. Apparently we do have an Internet connection at the hall, so next
month on line submissions will also be encouraged for critique.
month the 50/50 winner was posted incorrectly. It was actually John Joaquin who
went home with the loot, and this week’s winner, Peter Gorski, went home $25.00
