May 9th Meeting

First off, it was wonderful to see such a great turnout for the April 11th meetup .. one of the largest turnouts I've ever seen .. I really appreciate your interest in attending.

I truly hope that it was a satisfactory learning experience for those of you that expected a little assistance with their pop up / external speedlite. I came away with the feeling that  most, if not all of you feel a bit more comfortable now going out & putting your flash to good use.

Unfortunately time got the best of me (maybe that's cause I blabber too much) & we left with unfinished business. The vast majority of the group indicated they would like me, at this May 9th meetup, to continue where I left off with the use of flash with the dslr.

That said, we will pick up, at the May 9th meeting (after a quick review) where we left off .. moving to the A or Av mode / S or Tv mode / etc. with regards to flash photography. Once again, PLEASE bring your dslr & flash along with your manual if necessary. Review what you can from your manual before coming to this meetup. Be familiar with where your controls & settings are with regard to flash photography.

FINAL NOTE: Since the last meetup I am the new organizer & I would like to have a brief discussion regarding how we run the "new" group including dues, anticipated expenses .. new ideas .. etc. Please come with some ideas as to how you would like us to move forward / what we might do with any leftover money that may exist from the dues collection ... thanks.

Until then, as always ... HAPPY  SHOOTING  !!!  (Ron)

    Got interested in Photography as a Teen in the 1960s. Got my BS in Photographic Science at RIT. I switched to Digital Photography in 2003 and there's no going back. I love the capabilities and flexibility of Digital. I wouldn't go back even if I could.
