Eyes to the Skies everybody:  If it's not stars from Hemlock Lake, it's the sun and moon at our annual Schoen Place Bridge Shoot the very next night (see separate announcement).  Let's use both events this time to direct our focus toward ways to CAPTURE and ENHANCE our low-key images of some heavenly bodies.

Look at how many great images have been uploaded from our recent Star Shoot already!  Rich will lead us through our review and discussion of select images from that collection, and hopefully we'll pick up some new ways to battle that pesky problem of high-ISO noise while we're at it.   When he's finished, we'll have some videos -- this time from YouTube -- on the subject of shooting in low-light.   After that we'll wind up with couple of demos on some basic camera techniques that can make a big difference when the ambient lighting begins to disappear.

As always, it's better to RSVP early rather than later, and while you're at it, why not bring a friend who might also enjoy being a member of RPEG?

    Bill and I are sorry we missed it. The weather looked awful.

    Rich did a great job on the Skyshots critique. I learned a lot. I also liked Steve's selection and utilization of the Youtube videos.

    I was so excited about shooting the night sky that I planned to go out right when I got home...unfortunately there was not one star to be found! Thanks everyone for the great information and inspiration!

    Good fun, always learn something. Now I want to find a dark place to shoot the stars!

    Between my wife and I we are harboring some nasty virus. While I like to share my stuff my bet is everyone would not mind if I was a bit selfish and kept the virus to ourselves. I hope to feel better by tomorrow night. It sounds like a great photo op.

    So, it sounds like we will be going over how to edit these night-time photos so they aren't overly-tweaked so they look good on hard copy prints in additional to monitors. I need these tips!

    After a lengthy recuperation from a serious car accident I will try my darnedest to be there.

    Finishing a class at the community darkroom that evening, wish I could be there.
